Add A Frozen Dumpling To Your Eggs For A Distinctive And Savory Omelet-Like Breakfast
With well-seasoned meat and veggies stuffed inside tender wrappers, frozen dumplings are the unexpected key to a more flavor-packed breakfast egg.
As the dumplings cook alongside the eggs, their savory essence infuses each bite, introducing a contrast of crispy and chewy textures and flavors, from spicy to sweet.
Start by spreading the dumplings in a circle with spaces separating them, then add a bit of water and close the lid for a few minutes. As you wait, whisk the eggs.
Pour the eggs into the spaces between the dumplings, close the lid, and let it cook for a few minutes, resulting in a plate of dumplings with a fluffy and appetizing egg skirt.
To enhance the dish, add a dash of soy sauce, sesame oil, scallions, and cheese. If you like heat, you can add cayenne pepper, red chili flakes, and cumin.
