Making dinner and wondering what to serve with potstickers? Keep reading for 37 ideas on the perfect pairings.
Potstickers are one of my favorite things to eat. They’re always filled with veggies and protein and flavor, plus you can dunk them in your favorite sauce! While they’re traditionally more of an appetizer, there’s no reason you couldn’t make these your meal, especially with one of the delicious options below.
Imagine for a moment that you’re planning a dinner party and planning to serve a bunch of potstickers you’ve spent hours making. Do you want the first few guests that arrive to gobble the whole plate of them because they’re super hungry? Instead, you could offer a few things so those laborious (but delicious) potstickers don’t go so quickly.
But after making all those potstickers, you’re going to want some easier or quicker dishes. Enter this list.
This article is loaded with all kinds of ideas on what to serve with potstickers. There’s soups, salads, and even more appetizers. You could plan a “sample appetizer platter” type of meal, where all you serve are appetizers and finger foods. My family used to do this growing up for special occasions like New Year’s Eve. My mom would make little spinach balls, mini filo bowls with filling, mini bagel pizzas, and more.
Or perhaps you bought premade potstickers and just want to reheat some of them and serve them with other foods to make an easy meal. No shame in that! There are some great frozen potstickers out there. I love the ones from Trader Joe’s. Also, H-mart (a large Korean supermarket chain) offers many different frozen potstickers, and all the ones I’ve tried have been delicious.
Whatever kind of dinner you’re planning, if you’re wondering what to serve with potstickers, read on.
