Ingredients

2 cups medium sharp Cheddar, shredded

1/3 pound thin-cut bacon, half the fat removed, chopped into 1/2-inch pieces

1/2 tablespoon kosher salt

1/2 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper

1/2 large red onion, diced

8 ounces 80/20 ground beef

40 wonton wrappers

Vegetable oil, for frying

Directions

  1. Thoroughly combine the Cheddar, bacon, salt, pepper and onions in a medium mixing bowl using your hands. Add in the beef and combine well.
  2. 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. 
  3. Heat some vegetable oil in a saute pan. 
  4. Place the dumplings in a single layer in a large frying pan (you may need to work in batches). Add a few tablespoons 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. 
  5. Enjoy!
