Shrimp, tofu, spinach, mushrooms, beef, really 'almost' anything.

Frankly I think cream cheese, like tofu, totally bites ass anyway. A mixture of ground pork and cooked shrimp would be a bit more traditional and tasty.

I love the idea of a potato curry, kind of like a samosa.

Also, some chicken, ginger and green onions...whirl around in a mini food processor and serve with a great dipping sauce like the one with my spring rolls http://www.food52.com/recipes...

The back cover of Gourmet's May 2009 issue (yes I am THAT kind of nerd) had three fantastic dumpling recipes - one was for a sweet indian dessert style one, one was a thai shrimp filling and one was a spicy beef filling. I remember it so well because I've made the sweet indian one for dessert several times and the shrimp filling one was AWESOME. I'm sure you could find the recipes on epicurious.com.....

This are amazing. An afghan dumping stuffed with green onion, topped with a spiced lamb and yogurt sauce.

You could take that idea except filling the dumplings with a spiced Mediterranean meat mixture. (ground meat, mint, cumin, thyme, oregano, lemon zest, cinnamon, garlic and steam them; and served with a tazaki sauce and garnish of chopped tomatoes and parsley.
(think a deconstructed Gyro).

In my town (Portland, OR) there's a food cart called The Dump Truck that has a few different kinds. They've got the traditional pork and cabbage; and a portabello, rice noodle and ginger. Well, they also have a bacon cheeseburger one, but that may not be quite what you're looking for. But the portabello, rice noodle and ginger ones are really good!

try shredded cooked chicken, sour cream, chili powder, cumin, garlic, cilantro, and diced pickled jalapenos. it should look like a creamy, smooth chicken salad. you can also put the wonton wrappers in a greased mini muffin tin with this mixture in the center for a little "quiche-like" bite.
