Hey everyone, it's Lisa! This might be the most fun way to enjoy your bacon, eggs 'n cheese: stuffed into crispy dumplings! The air fryer makes this a snap, but I also have oven instructions for you. Just make sure you grab a pack of gyoza/wonton wrappers on your next grocery run. (Unless you already have some, you lucky thing...)

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes

Cool: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

1/2 cup (about 4 large) egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute

1 wedge The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese (or 1 tbsp. light/reduced-fat cream cheese)

Dash salt

1 tbsp. precooked real crumbled bacon

8 gyoza or wonton wrappers (stocked with the tofu in the refrigerated section of the supermarket)

Directions:

Spray a microwave-safe mug (or bowl) with nonstick spray. Add egg whites/substitute, cheese wedge, and salt. Microwave for 1 1/2 minutes, stirring halfway through, until egg has set and cheese is melted and well mixed.

Stir in bacon. Let cool slightly, about 5 minutes.

Top a gyoza wrapper with 1/8th of the egg mixture (about 1 tbsp.). Moisten the edges with water, and fold in half, enclosing the filling. Press firmly on the edges to seal. Repeat to make seven more dumplings. Spray with nonstick spray.

Add dumplings to the air fryer in a single layer. (If they won’t all fit, save the remaining for a second batch.) Set temperature to 375 degrees (or the nearest degree). Cook for 5 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.
