I can 100 percent admit that breakfast is my favorite meal. There (almost) isn鈥檛 a breakfast dish that I don鈥檛 like 鈥 and I鈥檓 a picky eater. Breakfast food is phenomenal, but it鈥檚 the whole morning experience that I am obsessed with. I love sunny and warm morning light, lounging in PJs and all foods that require syrup and eggs. I have told all my friends (and now all of you B+C readers) that when I get engaged, it had better happen over breakfast in bed 鈥 with warm morning light (of course) and the dogs that me and my future boyfriend/fianc茅 will have together.

Now to get back to the point of this article 鈥 breakfast pot stickers are where it鈥檚 at! Pot stickers are one of my favorite appetizers, so I decided to give them a breakfast revamp. Follow along below to learn how to make these sweet and savory morning treats.

Making pot stickers is super easy, but very time consuming. I suggest inviting some friends over to chit-chat the time away while stuffing and crimping pot stickers.

Add a little bit of all your ingredients inside the pot sticker wrapper. Add water to the edges, fold the wrapper in half and crimp the edges to create a tight seal.

Stuff, crimp, and chit-chat the time away.

  • blueberries
  • strawberries
  • lemon zest
  • pot sticker wrappers

Same drill here. Add the mixed fruit into the wrapper, wet the edges, and then seal.

*Note: The fruit cooks down a lot, so really seal the edges of these pot stickers.

French Toast Pot stickers

  • French toast
  • cinnamon
  • brown sugar

Cut up your French toast into small cubes and then add on to the wrapper. Top with a small pinch of cinnamon and a larger pinch of brown sugar. Add water to the edges and crimp shut.
