Breakfast is one of the most delightful meals. It can be savory or sweet, wrapped in a burrito or stamped between two pieces of gooey, cheesy bread.
The first meal of the day sits at the frontier of food experimentation, and at New York City’s Brooklyn Dumpling Shop, that frontier takes the classic sausage, egg and cheese combo and puts it in a croissant-dumpling—a Cro'Sumpling, if you will.
The delicious creation was conceived by Brooklyn Dumpling Shop owner Stratis Morfogen, and as author of the cookbook Damn Good Dumplings, she knows a thing or two about wrapping a tasty morsel in a bite-size blast.
"It's the best of both worlds,” Morfogen says. “Similar to what a Cronut is to a doughnut, here you've got croissant dough shaped like a dumpling with omelet style fillings and a side of Hollandaise sauce for dipping."
We’re lucky to get the exact recipe for Brooklyn Dumpling Shops breakfast treat. It’s more involved than scrambled eggs, but the pay-off is big!
