Vegetarian Oven-Baked Potato Dumplings

My kids are picky eater, so trying to come up with something they will eat, is more challenging than I could ever imagine. 

They eat a few things: rice, boneless chicken meat, beef patties, beef steak, pasta, fish and chips, potatoes and pizza. Meat pieces should be like meat, if it looks like anything else, it won't be eaten. 

So I get creative with our food in order for them to eat more than just a few items. This is one of the few things that my lovelies eat.

2 large potatoes
1 medium onion
1 tbs oil
1 ts salt
1 ts garlic powder
Other ingredients could be 1 teaspoon black pepper if no one is allergic or picky on spicy food.
1 pack of Medium Wonton wraps (these you can find in most of the Asian grocery stores in the frozen/fridge aisle).

Boil the potatoes until they are soft enough to be mashed.
Grade the onions or chop them into very small pieces.
Mix onion, mashed potatoes, oil, salt, garlic and pepper. Set the mixture aside. 
On a dry plate/serving plate, open the Wonton wraps. 
Put one wrap (or as many as you want) on the plate and with a food brush, make the corners of the wrap wet with water (this will make it easier to stick the corners of the wrap together). 
Then get a small spoonful of the mixture and place in the middle part of the wrap and and then fold the corners together to create the shape of a triangle with the wrap (the mixture will be locked inside of the fold). 
Put your folded wraps on a non-stick paper on the baking tray.
Turn your oven on and set the temperature to 375 Fahrenheit
Continue making the wraps.
Once you are done with wraps, brush the wraps with some oil (very gently and lightly). 
When the tray is full and the oven is preheated to 375, place the tray on the middle rack and  let it bake for 10 minutes.
Once it is done, serve it with Chatni or greek yogurt or any other sauce that you like.
The pictures will give a better idea of what steps you are supposed to take.
