  • Meat Sauce

  • 1(375g pkg) Maple Leaf® Natural Original Smoked Sausage
  • 1medium onion, diced
  • ½cup tomato sauce, prepared
  • 1clove garlic, crushed
  • 1tbsp olive oil

Meat Sauce

Dumpling Filling

  1. In a large bowl mix diced ham and cheese together.
  2. Place two teaspoons of the cheese and ham filling in the center of the prepared dumpling circles and fold one side of the dough over the filling to form a half circle.

  4. Remove the cooked dumplings and put them in a colander to drain.
  5. Serve with meat sauce. Garnish with chopped parsley.
