These potstickers don’t have the bulk from the buns so each bite-sized potsticker is a juicy little bacon cheeseburger bite wrapped in a chewy crispy little bundle! These little guys are SUPER addictive and easy to make.

I love cheeseburgers! πŸ™‚ I seem to be on a burger kick lately. There’s something about the combination of bacon, melted gooey cheese with beef, pickles, ketchup and mustard wrapped in a crispy dumpling skin that makes this the ultimate snack!

I could not stop eating these, we made 50 and we ate them all in one sitting. These little bite-sized guys are best shared so you don’t gorge on the whole batch but if you choose to have this all to yourself, who am I to judge? I did the same thing! πŸ˜›

INGREDIENTS

Almost all ingredients can be found at you local grocery store.

If you can’t find miso in your local grocery store, you should be able to find it at your local Asian grocery store or online here.

Potsticker/Dumpling skins can be found at your local Asian grocery store, however lately due to it’s popularity we have been seeing it at our local grocery store as well so you may be able to find it there too!

For the pickles we used a dill pickle, however you can use any kind you like!

 

 

PUTTING IT TOGETHER

Make the Bacon in Oven While Prepping Potstickers!
  1. This one is an easy one, setΒ your oven to 400 F (204C)
  2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and put the bacon into the oven (do not wait until it has been pre-heated! You want it to slowly reach to temperature with the bacon in there!)
  3. Set the timer for 20 minutes and let it cook while you do other things. πŸ™‚

Prep the Filling
  1. Grate the cheese and add it to a large bowl
  2. Chop up the pickles and onions finely and add it to the same bowl
  3. Add in the ground beef, miso and mustard
  4. Once the bacon is done, chop it up and add it to the bowl
  5. Using your hands, mix everything together

Folding the Dumplings
  1. Get a small bowl of water, this will be the “glue” for the dumplings
  2. Add about 1 tsp of filling onto the middle of the skins. Careful not to over stuff them
  3. On the edges of the dumplings apply a bit of water with your fingers

  4. The simplest way to fold these without going all fancy on pleats is just folding them in half and squeezing the ends together to form a half moon.

Cooking the Potstickers
  1. Set the stove to medium-low heat to pre-heat your non-stick frying pan. To see if the frying pan has come to temperature, add a few drops of water. If it sizzles and evaporates you’re good to go.
    IMPORTANT : must use non stick pan, this won’t work in a iron skillet.
  2. Add a bit of oil on the pan
  3. Place the dumplings in a single layer, making sure they are not touching each other.

  4. Cook them for about 3-4 minutes or until the bottoms are golden brown and crispy looking
  5. Once they are brown, add 1/4 cup of water into the pan and put a lid on to steam it for 4-5 minutes or until the water has evaporated
  6. Once we are done steaming, remove the lid and let it cook again to crisp up for 1-2 minutes. Around this time I carefully peel them off the frying pan to make sure they are not stuck to the pan and then continue to brown them until the bottoms are crispy again.
  7. Serve them with mayonaise, ketchup, mustard – or have them plain! πŸ™‚

Potstickers stuck to the pan? Restore the Non-stick Frying Pan

If you’re like us, you probably have an old non-stick pan that doesn’t ‘non-stick’ anymore. No worries! We can make it a non-stick again by seasoning it. Seasoning is not only limited to cast iron pans – I tested this theory and I actually have been treating all my non-stick pans the same way I treat my cast iron pan and it works!

 

Soap is the #1 killer with this technique since it strips off the oils, so whenever I wash the pan I usually use a gentle scrubbie brush with piping hot water and just wash away the food.

 

If you have food bits stuck to it, then I’d let it soak in water for a few minutes until the bits are soft and then brush it off with the scrubbie. The oil essentially stays on and the food is gone. Then I put it on the stove to dry over medium heat until the water has evaporated and then drizzle some oil on it and use a paper towel to spread it around the pan and lastly turn your stove on high heat with the pan on it until it just starts to smoke, then turn off the heat and set it aside to cool. Voila, it’s non stick again for next use!

 

Why these are called potstickers, I’ll never know…

  1. Wow, these look yummy, I bet cooking the bacon separately makes it extra crispy. Is there a typo in the paragraph about where to source the pastry? Doesn’t quite make sense

    1. Yes there was a typo! Thanks for spotting that Lizzie! πŸ™‚ definitely a more flavourful dumpling, when you pre-cook and crisp up that bacon! πŸ˜€

  2. I don’t eat bacon, but I can try this recipe with chicken. Also I loved the tip you gave on seasoning old non-stick pans. Thanks for the same.

    1. Thanks Raksha! You can switch up the ingredients in this! I have a love hate relationship with my non-stick frying pan haha so I thought I’d share that tip with people who have the same issue as me. πŸ™‚

    1. It’s a problem when I keep making bite-sized dinners. haha! πŸ™‚

    1. Definitely can switch up the ingredients! Makes cooking so much more fun right? πŸ™‚

  3. ahh this is so creative!! i know mimi cheng’s in nyc does creative dumplings, and lady and pups posted a buffalo wings xlb recipe a couple of months ago, and this reminds me of those. also: will have to try seasoning my nonstick pans! i have a couple that are becoming a pain in the butt to use.

    1. :O I need to check out the dumpling places. I love that stuff! Yes re-season your pans! πŸ™‚ They will save you from re-buying them again! I have a love-hate relationship with mine too -_- so I thought it’d be nice to share the tips for anyone else out there that has the same pains. πŸ™‚

  4. These look absolute incredible Joyce. They are such a unique flavor for potstickers and I can see why you scarfed down 50 in one sitting. . .but the big question is. . .how many of you actually ate the 50? πŸ˜‰

    1. Aw thanks Lynn! πŸ™‚ Would you believe 1? πŸ˜› haha I’m pretty sure one of us at 75% of it.
