Everything Is Better With Bacon!

Mission Street Food has added bacon soup dumplings (aka XLBs) to their menu. Now usually I am a stickler for good wrapping and thin but supple skins. These puppies weren't even close in what I usually ask for given the sloppy assembly, thickish gummy skins, and the "cheat" of using mini silicone cupcake molds. But all is forgiven and forgotten when that delicious bacony soup and filling enters your mouth. The smokiness and umami of it all. And yeah, there is a lot of soup. This is inspiring me to make XLBs again...
