Creamy Potato Soup with Bacon

Bacon Cheddar Burger Dumplings


“Kayem's new bacon is my go-to. The family-owned company that started in 1909 right here in Chelsea may be known for their high-quality craft meats like franks and sausages, but their new small-batch bacon is what all the buzz is about.”

Bacon Cheddar Burger Dumplings


2 cups medium sharp cheddar, shredded

1/2 tablespoon kosher salt

1/2 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper

1/2 large red onion, diced

8 ounces 80/20 ground beef

1 Tbs ketchup

1 Tbs Mayo

1 tsp mustard

40 wonton wrappers

Vegetable oil, for frying

  • Thoroughly combine the cheddar, Kayem Bacon, salt, pepper, ketchup, mayo, mustard and onions in a medium mixing bowl using your hands. Add in the beef and combine well.
  • Roll out your wonton wrappers. Place a dollop of the filling into the center of each wonton using a tablespoon measure. Fold over the ends to make an enclosed envelope, and then secure by either scalloping or pressing the prongs of a fork into the edge.
  • Heat some vegetable oil in a saute pan.
  • Place the dumplings in a single layer in a large frying pan (you may need to work in batches). Add a few tablespoons of water and heat slowly, covered, until the water has evaporated, about 5 minutes. Uncover and add 1 tablespoon of the hot oil to fry the bottoms of the dumplings.
