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

How to Make Bacon Cheeseburger Dumplings


  1. Preheat 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.
  2. To make the dumplings, make an egg wash, lightly beating the egg with 1 teaspoon water in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. In 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.
  4. Divide the dough in half. Shape each half into a roll 12 inches long and cut each roll into 1/2-inch slices.
  5. Roll 1 slice of dough into a 3- 4 inch circle and place 1 teaspoon of meat mixture on one sid of the circle. Add a piece of cheese.
  6. Using 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.
  7. Heat the canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until it’s almost smoking. Using a spatula, gently transfer 4 or 5 dumplings to the skillet and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Turn them over and cook until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes more.
  8. Transfer the dumplings to the baking sheet and bake them for 5 minutes. Serve warm with favorite sauces.
