  • 1 12 Oz Bag No Yolks Dumpling Noodles
  • 10 slices bacon
  • 3 onions sliced thin
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup white cheddar grated
  • 1 cup gruyere grated
  • Kosher Salt
  • Pepper


  • Bring 1 large pot of water to a bowl. Then add 1 bag of No Yolks Noodles and cook until al dente, then strain. Set aside.
  • Meanwhile, slice bacon into tin strips and add to a large sauce pan. Fry the bacon over medium-low heat until the fat has rendered and the bacon is crispy. Remove the bacon but leave the bacon grease.
  • Add the sliced onions along with 2 pinches of red pepper flakes and 3 hefty pieces of kosher salt. Using a wooden spoon or spatula, stir the onions around, scraping up any bits of bacon that are stuck to the bottom of the bacon. Turn the heat up to medium, while stirring every so often, until the onions are caramelized.
  • Once the onions are caramelized, add the cream and bring to a low simmer. Turn down the heat to medium-low and add in the cheese, another pinch of salt, and some freshly cracked black pepper.
  • Stir mixture in a figure 8 until the cheese has melted. Immediately add the No Yolks noodles to the cheese mixture and stir until each noodle is coated. Add bacon on top and serve immediately.
