Cheese Basil Puffs (Cheese Basil Dumplings)

Good day darlings! How's your weekend?  I have been so lazy this weekend  because it's been super hot here now we've got to turn the air conditioning on 24/7.  The only productive thing I have done I think is this recipe.  I love cheese.  I think I have told you that one too many times already, but who does not love cheese?  I've never met a person who does not love it or even like it? So, for us cheese lovers, here's any easy recipe you can do at home for snack.
Cheese Basil Puffs  (Cheese Basil Dumplings)



For this recipe, we will need the following:
1.  Dumpling wrappers
2.  Fresh basil leaves
3.  Cheese of your choice

Let's start, shall we?  Get some fresh basil leaves.  You can buy this at the supermarket or plant your own.  It's super easy to grow and if you're like me who loves tomato-based dishes, pasta, and anything with tomatoes and cheese, having a basil plant is a must.  Wash your leaves and air dry them.  While they're drying, cut you cheese into one-inch cubes.  I'm using regular cheese here in the Philippines but you can definitely use mozarella.

Next, get a piece of dumpling wrapper.  Place a leaf of basil then top with your cubed cheese.  This is how it should look like ;)

Next, bring all sides to the center, pinch, and then twist.  Dumpling wrappers are pretty thick and a bit pliable so don't worry about tearing the wrapper.

Repeat the steps until you've wrapped all basil and cheese.  This is how they looked like after I've wrapped them all.

In a pan, heat oil, about an inch deep, then place your "dumplings."  Fry until the wrapper is golden brown.  Place it in a container lined with paper towel to drain any excess oil.

Let it cool down for a bit and then serve.  Love the crunchiness of the dumpling wrapper and that gooey melted cheese!  You can serve this with mayo or ketchup.
ATTENTION:  Don't be too excited eating this!  You will definitely burn your mouth.  Don't do what I did and ate a piece too hot :(

  1. This is much better than cheese sticks--the cheese doesn't come oozing out while cooking. Though I'd make do without the basil since, you know, I don't eat any greens. Maybe use ham or slices of sausages instead? That would be really yummy. :D

  5. This looks so easy and doable (even for a beginner cook like me). I love how it's a blend of Asian dumping skins and some all-American cheese.

  6. I will try this with mozzarella!! And this is perfect for the beau to snack on coz he looooves cheese to death (quite possibly more than he loves me hehe). I haven't tried twisting dumpling wrappers as I've only used them for pinsit. But if they don't twist properly, might have to use beaten eggs as a glue.

    Thanks for this!!
