My husband and I really enjoy going out to eat. Lately we have had to cut down on our eating out so that we can really focus on being healthy. When we do go out it is more of a treat and we are starting to pick healthier options.
Upon making this choice to order them I thought for sure kiddo would share in them as well. She was not interested in anything but her chicken fingers and fries at this point. After sharing that appetizer and knowing how much my husband loved them – I had to find a way to make them healthier for us so we could enjoy them at home.
I landed on SparkPeople’s recipe site – Sparkrecipes : Baked Potstickers
Yummy Baked Potstickers
- 1 pound ground pork
- 1 bag shredded cabbage
- 1 handful of baby carrots
- 1 white onion - diced
- 1/2 c diced celery
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp hoisin sauce
- 1-2 tsp low sodium soy sauce
- dash of garlic powder
- dash of onion powder
- Frank's Red Hot - optional - add to your taste preference
- 1 package won ton wrappers
- Smash up pork in bowl.
- Beat egg and add it to the pork.
- Add the diced vegetables.
- Add hoisin sauce, garlic powder, onion powder and Frank's Red Hot.
- Mix thoroughly.
- Use a tiny spoon to put the mixture on one side of the won-ton wrapper and use your fingers or a crimper to seal them shut. Make sure you get them a little wet first so they will stick.
- Bake at 425 for 15 -20 minutes.
- I found baking them on a pizza stone then giving them a quick toss in a fry pan with cooking spray gave them an extra crisp.
- Serve with a side of stir fry vegetables to complete the meal.
Sounds yummy…I have never had potstickers because in the restaurants they have ingredients I don’t eat. But now that I know it is simple..I can change up mine as well.

I never wanted to try them either. I tried a “dumpling” at the Oriental place and did not like them. It was to my understanding a potsticker was just a dumpling that had been fried, not to be confused with perogies. LOL I am going to experiment with them more because they were so cheap to make and we really liked them. Not to mention we got 2 dinners and 2 lunches out of them.
