Thanksgiving Leftovers Bao

Chris and Jeff make big giant bao using Thanksgiving leftovers.

Thanksgiving Leftovers Bao

  • Make your Bao dough using this recipe (
    • If you add some sweet potato to the dough, add more flour as the moisture from the sweet potato will make the dough wetter! About 30g more flour for 1/3 to 1/2 cup of sweet potato.
  • Assemble your bao. We made big bao, so we divided the dough into 5 large portions, but you can make smaller ones. This dough recipe makes 10-12 regular sized bao.
  • Allow the bao to rest, covered for about 45 minutes to rise.
  • Place onto your steamer with the water at a boil already. Steam for 8-10 minutes for regular sized bao. For our giant bao, it took 15 minutes to get them fully cooked!
