Makes 35
Prep time: 10 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes


4 ounces|116 grams streaky bacon
6 large eggs, lightly beaten
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
6 ounces|175 grams shredded cheddar cheese
35 square wonton wrappers
canola oil, for frying
ketchup, for serving


  1. Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium. Add the bacon and cook, flipping once, until crispy, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
  2. Add the eggs to the same skillet and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until curds form and the eggs are lightly set, about 5 minutes. Stir in the cheese and crumble the bacon throughout. Cool the mixture slightly.
  3. Working with one wonton wrapper at a time, place about 2 teaspoons of egg in the center and wet the edges with water. Fold in half, forming a triangle. Place the wontons on a baking sheet until ready to fry.
  4. Heat 2-inches canola oil in a large saucepan until a deep-fry thermometer reaches 350°F. Working in batches, fry the wontons, flipping once halfway through, until golden, about 1 minute. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and season with salt. Serve with ketchup.
