TOTAL TIME: 30 min

Parmesan Dumplings


  • Grated Parmesan cheese
  • Olive oil
  • Chili crisp
  • Frozen dumplings


Step 1 - Preheat Oven

Set your oven to 175°C (350°F).

Step 2 - Prepare Cheese Mixture

Combine a good amount of grated Parmesan with a splash of olive oil and a spoonful of chili crisp. Tailor the amounts to suit the number of dumplings you're making and your taste for cheese and spice. The goal is a spreadable mixture that's nicely moist but not too oily.

Step 3 - Prepare Baking Pan

Spread the Parmesan mixture evenly on a baking sheet.

Step 4 - Add Dumplings

Place the frozen dumplings directly onto the Parmesan mixture.

Step 5 - Prepare Baking Pan

Put the baking sheet in the oven and bake for about 25 minutes. The exact time might vary depending on your oven and the size of the dumplings. You're looking for the cheese to melt, bubble, and turn golden brown, forming a crispy 'skirt'.
