These breakfast wontons would be epic for a hangover-curing brunch; the only problem is, the oil tends to splatter. So be careful, or make last night’s DD do the cooking after you do the assembly. Make the full recipe if the gang’s still together, or make just a few and save your extra egg mix for tomorrow.

You can really put whatever you want in the wontons, so if bacon isn’t your thing feel free to change it up. Just be sure to chop your ingredients up nice and fine, so you can easily seal up the wontons.

  • Step 5

    Sear dumplings in oil on medium heat for about 2 minutes, until golden. Carefully add 2 Tablespoons of water and put a lid on the pan. The remaining oil WILL splatter, so be careful! After 2 minutes of steaming, remove the lid and wait for any remaining water to evaporate.
