Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Dumplings

What do I do when I’m craving a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich but don’t have brioche buns? Make dumplings, of course.


  • 4 strips of bacon, cooked, and cut into bits
  • 4 eggs, seasoned with salt and pepper, scrambled
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ~15-20 dumpling skins
  • Optional: greens from 1 scallion
  • To dip: sriracha and ketchup


  • Mix bacon, egg, cheese, and scallions (if using) together, breaking the eggs into smaller bits. Fold into dumpling skins.
  • Pan fry these so you get a nice and crispy bottom. My method: heat up oil in nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, add dumplings to the skillet and fry until the bottoms turn a golden brown. Add 1/3 cup of water and cover and steam for ~5 minutes. Remove lid and cook until water completely evaporates and allow it to fry for another 1-2 minutes to crisp the bottoms up fully again.
