The holidays are almost here! We are planning a holiday game night soon and I have been trying to come up with fast easy appetizer recipes. Last year for our Christmas game night we prepared a lot of sandwich platters. This year I wanted to try something our guests could just pop into their mouth instead of having them put together a sandwich. I know the traditional appetizer is a dip of some sort, but we usually are not very traditional when it comes to our food! We love big bold flavors. If you have been following my blog for a while, you already know we love going out to eat dumplings and egg rolls. I know not everyone has easy access to authentic restaurants so I was planning on making dumplings and egg rolls by hand! As busy as the holiday season is I knew I would never have time and how many of my readers would have time? Thankfully Pagoda® carries a variety of appetizers!
My two favorites are definitely the Pagoda Chicken Egg Rolls and the Pork Potstickers. The egg rolls come individually wrapped and the potstickers come in 2 packets making it easy not to waste anything!
You can make them party ready by slicing the egg rolls into bite size pieces. My guests usually prefer something on the spicy side so I sprinkled a little crushed red pepper and fresh jalapeno over the top of the dumplings. I served my egg rolls with a side of cabbage and my dumplings with just a little of the dipping sauce drizzled over the top. Just imagine your favorite holiday platter loaded with these super tasty bites! We always have lots of disposable chopsticks on hand for our guests. These holiday treats are great in one or two bites and will be easy to grab with chopstick confidence!
If you have ever been to an Asian market you know how hard it is to find a sauce to go along with your recipe. We have countless bottles of dumpling sauce experiments in our pantry. When you buy Pagoda they provide the perfect serving sauce in the box! The egg rolls come with a sweet chili dipping sauce, while the dumplings have a savory lime ponzu sauce. Additionally, Pagoda snacks are made with no certified artificial dyes, no MSG, no trans fats, no PHOs, no high fructose corn syrup, and no preservatives!
