Elevate your dumplings with these crispy dumpling cheese wings!

I made some miso cheese gyoza during the holidays and we received some vegan cheese to try. We wanted to see how it would melt up so we threw some in a pan with the gyoza and what came out was this wing-like crunchy crispy cheese goodness.

Working with cheese wings is different than your typical slurry. The first time, I did the fry, steam (w/ h2o + cheese) and fry, but the cheese doesn’t get super crispy. I tried with a few different methods (+heat), and found this order to yield the best results without burning.
