- Portion size 20 servings
- 8 oz mild Italian sausages
- 1 cup finely chopped mushroom
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 2 tablespoons light cream cheese
- 20 wonton wrappers
- 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
Squeeze sausage from casings into large skillet; cook over medium-high heat, breaking up with spoon, for 5 minutes or until no longer pink. Drain off fat.
Stir in chopped mushrooms and garlic; cook, stirring often, for about 5 minutes or until liquid is evaporated. Remove skillet from heat. Stir in cream cheese; let cool for 15 minutes.
Brush edge of 1 of the wrappers with water; place heaping 1 tsp (5 mL) sausage mixture in centre. Bring 4 corners up over filling to meet; press seams together to seal and form package. Repeat with remaining wrappers. (Make-ahead: Freeze in layers separated by waxed paper in airtight container for up to 3 weeks.)
Place dumplings in steamer basket over gently boiling water; cover and steam for about 10 minutes if fresh, 15 minutes if frozen, or until wrappers are translucent. Serve warm with Worcestershire sauce for dipping.
