IMBB 7: You're Just the Cutest Little Dumpling!
Breakfast Dumpling is my contribution to the 7th Edition of My Blog is Burning. The theme is "Your the cuttest little dumpling".
I've never made a dumpling before, all the dumplings I've read about have flour in them of some sorts. Since, I was short on time and didn't know how to make any dumplings, I made an Akins inspired dumpling for breakfast.
I made a scramble using mushrooms, tomatoes, and onions and wrapped it up in a deli sliced ham. I bunched up the ham and secured it in place with tooth picks and tied it together with a green onion. I was going to brown the ham on a skillet but the dumpling was too fragile to move. The picture above was my 5th attempt at getting the concoction to look like a dumpling. The filling is outside the dumpling.
Taste wise, the picture looks better than the dumpling. The ham was too salty and there wasn't enough egg inside the dumpling but if I cut myself a bit of ham and forked a bite of the scramble then it tasted good. The ham would have been better if I browned it on the skillet. There's my entry, a Flour-less Breakfast Dumpling.
