Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast Wontons

Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast Wontons | sharedappetite.com

Need an excuse to get out of bed in the morning?  How about getting your creative wonton on with these Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast Wontons!

March… you’re a jerkface.  We’ve all been looking forward to you for few months now.  Our arms were open wide to greet you with a hug, and instead you punched us in the face with more snow.  Thus, you’re a jerkface.

You know who’s not a jerkface?  The genius individual that first came up with the brilliant idea of combining bacon, egg, and cheese.  That person rocks.

Grabbing a bacon, egg, and cheese on a roll at a local deli?  Great.  Putting it on a legit NY bagel?  Always pretty epic.  But I don’t know about you… I like me some variety in life.  Which is why you’ve seen me stuff this classic combo onto breakfast totchos (tater tot nachos), avocado toast, and even risotto and a Brussels sprout salad.

But stuffing it inside some wontons?  Ermagherd YES.

Just imagine waking up on a weekend after having a really really great time the night before… and you have a big ‘ole plate of these Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast Wontons waiting for you.  Exactly.

True confession time.  I honestly didn’t have enough patience to eat these with chopsticks.  Or a fork for that matter.  #dontjudge #fingersarethenewchopsticks

And listen… I’m a dude and don’t want to refer to those little bottles of ketchup as cute…. but come on, they are pretty freaking cute perfect aren’t they?  And it ends up that these little beauties aren’t just all looks… it just may be my new favorite ketchup.  It’s Sir Kensington, in case you’re wondering.

Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast Wontons


  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 5 mins
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 20 Wontons 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 eggs, scrambled
  • 4 slices cooked bacon, finely diced
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese
  • 20 wonton wrappers
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • Ketchup, for serving

Instructions

  1. Combine scrambled eggs, bacon, and cheddar cheese in a small mixing bowl. Place a little bowl of water next to your workstation as a “wash” to help seal wontons. Working one at a time, add 1 small spoonful of egg mixture to the center of each wonton wrapper. Dip a finger into the water, , and trace the perimeter of the wonton wrapper. Fold the wonton in half and seal tightly all around. Make sure there are no air pockets or holes in the wonton. Place sealed wontons under a moistened paper towel to avoid drying out.
  2. When all wontons are folded and sealed, heat oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add wontons to pan (they should sizzle when they hit the pan… if not, oil is not hot enough yet) and cook approximately 2-3 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally, until the pan-side of the wontons are golden brown.
  3. Add 2 tablespoons of water to skillet, cover with lid, and cook for 2 minutes, shaking occasionally. Remove cover and cook until water evaporates and dumplings are cooked through.
  4. Transfer to a platter and serve with ketchup. Devour immediately.

Notes

To create the pleated look (or other fancy schmancy folding techniques) as you seal your wontons, just do a quick Google or YouTube search… there are plenty of video tutorials to show you how to become a wonton wrapping master. And then teach me your ways.

If you can only find square wonton wrappers (that’s all I could find in my local grocery store), you can make them round like I did with the help of a cookie cutter. Feel free to leave ’em square as well.

  1. OMG, I can;t believe you said jerkface…I thought I was the only one that said this!
    The fact that my most favorite word ever AND breakfast WONTONS are in the same post? I am DYING.
    Chris, these are SO CREATIVE. I am obsessed! Pinned!

  2. CHRIS. You are a genius! Breakfast WONTONS. And yeah, those are the cutest little bottles of ketchup I’ve ever seen. Must make these immediately!

  3. Yeah, our temps are going to dip below zero once again! Ugh. But your breakfast wontons would sure bring some sunshine to my day. They sound glorious!

  4. If I woke up and found a plate of these for breakfast, it would probably be the greatest day of my life. That may be a sliiiight hyperbole, but you get my point. These look nom-tastic!

  5. High-five my friend. You took the words right out of my mouth. I’m looking outside the window right now and I’m like “YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!!!!” Where’s spring? Where’s the sun? Where’s life?
    I’m so over this cold/snow/winter, you don’t know the half of it.
    But I’m definitely not over (nor I’ll ever be) these mouthwatering wontons. They are perfect, in all respects!

  6. OMG! As if the bacon + egg + cheese combo couldn’t get any better. I love wontons and getting the go ahead to eat them for breakfast is perfection! What a great idea Chris!

  7. Jerkface would be an understatement! But these wontons make me forget all about that! These are genius, like the type of food I would pray to magically appear after a good night out! And the ketchup bottles are so cute!!

  8. Full honesty – I love a man who cooks (I married one) so I will probably pass this recipe on to him – How do these keep in the fridge or freezer?

    1. Hahaha smart lady… let him make ’em for you! Honestly I’m not sure because I always make ’em right before devouring them… and I’m not quite sure how reheated eggs would be. Sorry, totally not helpful I know!

  9. Oh my goodness … words fail me, Chris, because these are just about perfect! Love that they’re different, love that they’re easy, and most of all love that they combine that classic trio of flavours. Basically … love them!

  10. Gah! Even though I think March is AWESOME (ahem my birthday ahem…and….80 degree spring weather;), I would endure all of the snow if it meant I could wake up with bacon and egg wontons! Um yes please!
