Instructions Checklist
  • Put squash, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, sugar, and salt in a medium saucepan. Cover with water; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook until squash is very soft, about 12 minutes; drain. Transfer to a medium bowl; mash with a fork until smooth. Stir in scallions and ginger. Stir together sesame seeds, 1/4 cup water, and remaining 1/2 cup soy sauce in a bowl; set sauce aside.

  • Place 1 scant tablespoon filling in the center of each wrapper; brush edges with water. Bring up corners to make a triangle; press to seal. Place on a baking sheet; freeze until firm, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add 10 potstickers, and cook, shaking pan frequently, until bottoms are golden brown. Turn pot stickers over; very carefully pour in 1/2 cup water, and cover. Steam until most liquid is evaporated, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a serving dish; cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining oil and pot stickers. Serve with dipping sauce.

I made this for dinner last night and was underwhelmed. The recipe made a LOT of filling (I had circular wonton wrappers, so maybe square ones would have accommodated more filling, but still...). I only used 1/4 cup of soy sauce, and to me the filling just tasted like slightly sweet, slightly ginger-y soy sauce. If I was making again I don't think I'd add any soy sauce to the mashed squash, and would probably toss in some carrots, yellow onions or other veggies to bring a little more flavor.

These are awesome and very easy. I added a few squirts of Siracha to the dipping sauce. I will make extra and put in a freezer bag for another day.

These were great! I made them with my 7 year old - she loved working with the wrappers. We used baked sweet potatoes instead of the butternut squash, since this is what I had on hand. Delicious!

My first time making pot stickers, and these were great! I call them squash stickers :) To the previous poster, I used a "honey soy dipping sauce' recipe from the food network web site and it was delicious with these :)

I'd like to have recipe suggestions for the dipping sauce, please.
