leftover ham

Kids love these ham dumplings in cheesy garlic sauce and they’re a great idea for using up leftover Holiday Ham

EASY HAM AND ONION DUMPLINGS in CHEESEY GARLIC SAUCE: Put some leftover Ham and Onions finely diced inside store bought wonton wrappers. Get a small cup of water and dip your finger in it. Trace around the edge of  the wrapper so it’s wet and will stick. Fold. Put some oil in a regular pan and fry the dumplings for 3 minutes till browned. Add about a half cup of water and put the lid on for another 5 minutes to steam. Meanwhile slice 2 cloves of garlic and place in about a cup of milk. Bring slowly to boil, and reduce to simmer. Keep warm so the garlic infuses into the milk. Make a roux from a tablespoon of butter and a tablespoon of regular all purpose flour. Add the garlic infused milk and a stir until you get a thick white sauce. Add handful of finely grated parmesan to the sauce and stir again. Add Salt and Pepper to taste. Serve poured over the dumplings. Fresh Parsley optional.

Store bought wonton wrappers > Put diced ham and onion in the middle > Fold
Make infused garlic milk, add to a roux > Add parmesan to the roux > Fry then steam the dumplings 
Folded dumplings: Looks hard but it’s super easy, dip your finger in the water and trace around the outside of the filling. Then make 3 quick folds each side.
