I make these yummy dumplings for my son. If you love cheeseburgers, you will love these. Don't be intimidated with the home made dumplings, the are so easy to make. So much better than store bought. his dough can also be used to make pot stickers.

When I make these I double the batch and freeze. I just re - heat on a baking sheet

1Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

To make the filling, combine the ground beef, bacon, gherkins, onion, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Mix well by hand or with a spoon and season with the salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

2To make the dumplings, make an egg wash, lightly beating the egg with 1 teaspoon water in a small bowl. Set aside.

3In a bowl, ( I used my food processor) - mix the flour and 1 cup boiling water until a soft dough forms. Knead the dough on a lightly flour surface about 5 minutes, or until smooth. If using food processor kneading time will be decreased.

6Using a pasty brush - brush the edges of each dumpling with egg wash. Fold the unfilled side over to create a half moon. I used a fork to press and seal the edges.
