1 lb (4 medium) Bako Sweet® Sweet Potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
2 tbsp butter or plant-based spread
1 medium onion, chopped
⅓ cup sharp Cheddar or Gouda cheese, shredded
¼ cup milk
¼ tsp dried thyme
⅛ tsp salt, or to taste
5 large dumpling wrappers
Fresh chives, snipped
Sour cream (optional)
Prep Time: 20 min
Cook Time: 40 min
1 Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to low and cook for 20 minutes more, or until soft and golden brown.
2 While onion is cooking, place sweet potatoes in a microwave-safe bowl and add ½" water. Cover with plastic wrap and pierce to vent. Microwave on high for 7–8 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
3 Carefully drain excess water and mash. Add onion, cheese, milk, and thyme. Season with salt. Place dumpling wrappers on a board in a single layer and place equal amounts of potatoes into the center of each.
4 Brush the empty part of the wrapper with water and pull up one corner into the center of the dumpling. Carefully pleat the wrapper by folding over in ½" increments until the potato is fully enclosed. Press gently to seal and twist slightly to make a slight pinwheel pattern.
5 Place several inches of water in a large skillet with a lid and bring to a boil. Carefully place dumplings in water and cover skillet. Reduce heat and let steam for 10 minutes.
6 Transfer to a plate and sprinkle with chives. Serve with sour cream, if desired. Enjoy!
