Recipe Ingredients for Butternut Squash Dumplings

1 cup butternut squash
1/2 cup cream cheese
1/3 cup grated Parmesan
1 egg yolk
1 clove garlic
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1 pinch of nutmeg
1 pinch of cayenne
12 oz wonton wrapper

Recipe Directions for Butternut Squash Dumplings

  1. To prep the butternut squash: cut a small squash in half lengthwise, scoop out the seeds and wrap in foil. Roast in a 375 degrees F. for 1 hour, or until the butternut squash is tender. Let cool. Scoop the soft squash into a bowl and discard the skin.

  2. Place one cup of the butternut squash into a mixing bowl. Add the cream cheese, Parmesan, egg yolk, garlic, salt, black pepper, nutmeg, and cayenne. Mix thoroughly with a spatula.

  3. To make the dumpling: Using the tip of your finger or small pastry brush, dampen the wonton wrapper, all the way around the edge with water or beaten egg. Place 1/2 tablespoon of the butternut filling in the center and fold in half, pinching the edges together tightly to seal.

  4. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add the dumplings and boil for 1 minute, or until they float. Drain well. Heat over skilled until dumplings are heated through. Season with salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste. Serve 8 dumplings per person with grated Parmesan.

  5. *note, this recipe allows guests to pile on their own butter, however the original recipe includes a brown butter garlic sage sauce, which adds quite the calories.
