Breakfast Fusion Potstickers

As featured on Huffington Post

Your guest bedroom is booked and you want to serve your company something other than boring eggs in the morning. Here's a meal that will make a lasting impression - potstickers...for breakfast! These are so tasty that you just might want to have them for lunch and dinner too.

unique breakfast recipes
This is such a Millennial thing. Try it - you'll love it.

So many people seem to be intimidated by the thought of making their own potstickers. They are EASY! The filling can be made the day before. I like to make a big batch of these potstickers during the weekend and reheat them in the air fryer for weekday breakfasts.

Premade potsticker wrappers (AKA wonton wrappers) can be found in the produce section of most grocery stores, usually near the bean sprouts and tofu, and are only a few dollars. I tried once to made my own wrappers from scratch. They turned out fine but took up my entire afternoon! 

 potstickers for breakfast
There. Now that you know what to buy, you have no excuse not to make these scrumptious breakfast potstickers.

how to make potstickers
You can place a dozen wrappers on the countertop and get the entire package knocked out quickly. Bonus if you have a helper. Sexy Nerd looooves to eat these, but also hates them because he knows he's expected to turn off Nascar and come help me fill and fold potstickers!

potsticker recipe tips 
A cup of water and a basting brush make easy work out of sealing the edges.

make your own potstickers

how many potstickers can i place in 1 pan
Any pan will do the trick, but my electric skillet from the clearance aisle at Bed Bath & Beyond (it wobbles dangerously because it is missing a leg - I still say it was a deal!) can hold all 48 potstickers at once. Technically, it's a bit of a squeeze and they all stick together this way, but the sooner you're done cooking the potstickers, the sooner you can eat them.

what's the best pan for making potstickers
Steaming.
Ooooh!

homemade potstickers
Side 1, all steamed, soft, and chewy.

Side 2, crispy and fried to perfection! (And all stuck together, just like I warned.)

Breakfast Potstickers with Avocado and Goat Cheese
    • 1 cup Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns
    • ½ lb bacon, cooked and chopped
    • 1 avocado, diced
    • ½ cup crumbled goat cheese
    • ½ cup fresh spinach
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 red bell pepper
    • ½ white onion
    • 48 wonton wrappers
    • just a little vegetable oil ( for frying)
    • ¼ cup ketchup
    • 1 cup boiling water ( for steaming)
    • sea salt and black pepper for seasoning
  1. In a medium bowl, add Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, bacon, avocado, and goat cheese.
  2. In a food processor, finely chop the spinach, bell pepper, and onion. Add the eggs to the food processor and pulse until combined.
  3. Mix the ingredients from the food processor into the bowl.
  4. On a clean countertop, lay out a dozen potsticker wrappers. Place 1 tablespoons of filling onto the center of each.
  5. Using a basting brush, lightly dab the edges of each potsticker with cold water.
  6. Fold a corner of each potsticker onto the opposite corner, forming a triangle, and press all the way around the edges to create a seal.
  7. Repeat until all of your potsticker wrappers are filled and sealed.
  8. In a large pan with a lid (I use an electric griddle, set to 350F) add just enough oil to lightly coat the surface. When the oil is hot, add as many potstickers as will fit (My griddle can accommodate all 48 - though it is a tight fit! - but smaller pans will require you to work in batches).
  9. While the potstickers are cooking, combine your boiling water and ketchup and mix thoroughly. Add this water/ketchup mixture onto the potstickers and immediately cover with the lid.
  10. Let steam for 5 minutes, then remove the lid, allowing the water to evaporate.
  11. Season with sea salt and black pepper.
  12. Enjoy your fancy potsticker breakfast!

Still have goat cheese to use up? Try this dip, which is also great as a sandwich spread and on salads. Even self-proclaimed goat cheese haters can't resist it!

Chemical Peel Before & After

This article has been updated! My new chemical peel post, which includes pricing, Jessner peel before and after photos, product recommendations, and a helpful timeline for scheduling your treatments, is at the bottom. My original Jessner peel post (one of the most popular on my site of all time) is at the beginning. Original Chemical Peel Article Considering a chemical peel? I recently underwent my first Jessner peel and thought I'd share my results, post a Jessner peel review, and answer some frequently asked chemical peel questions. (I'm guessing that "Does a chemical peel hurt?" is a biggie!) I'd been planning to order an over-the-counter peel when we were in Iceland , but my computer led me a different direction. I decided to do this on a whim after Groupon greeted me one morning with a great $40 chemical peel deal. Now, I can read your mind. You just gasped in horror and thought  You trusted your face to a  discount  chemical peel?!  You're wondering w

How to Move a Mattress

This is  how to move a mattress  without damaging it - even by yourself!  When we were faced with the challenge of moving our beloved Amerisleep AS3  to our new home, it seemed like my readers would enjoy the details. This handy tip should work for any memory foam bed, including Casper, Leesa, and Nectar.  I'm happy to report there is an extremely simple way to do it. Apartment and dorm dwellers rejoice! How to Move a Mattress At first, I wasn't sure how to move our king-size mattress down a flight of stairs. It's a problem we've dreaded solving ever since we made the decision to build a new house.  The answer? It was right in the back of our truck.  Ratchet straps . This solution could also serve as a 'How To' for returning

Reuzel: Grooming Tonic Industry Review

I'm looking out for you, my bloggy friends. At my last haircut, the hairdresser shared his favorite hair product of all time, REUZEL (which I'd never heard of), with me and I had enough sense to get the details to share with you. He didn't even have a bottle of it to sell me. It was a genuine, honest review. Also, are they still called hairdressers? Is this the equivalent of calling your flight attendant a stewardess? Stylist? Barber? Reuzel  Grooming Tonic Review You know those men who have the softest, most perfect hair and it seems so unfair because most men don't even care about their hair? (Or so they say.) I think this is their secret. While you're here, be sure to read my  funny haircut story . Geez, I'm awkward. The fact that I was brave enough to ask to take this photo at the salon is proof I love my blog readers. Never heard of it? That's probably because Reuzel Grooming Tonic is marketed toward men. From reading their endless 5-star reviews, men

Oatmeal with Quinoa

*Do not add chia seeds - see note at the end of this recipe. In response to my popular Instant Pot Explosion blog post, I've had a few blog readers ask for my oatmeal with quinoa recipe, which is made in the Instant Pot. This seems a bit odd...you guys aren't trying to recreate that gooey mess in your own kitchens, right?  My recipe does make delicious, foolproof Instant Pot oatmeal. It's only for patient people though. Whatever you do, do not manually release the pressure valve at the end of the cooking cycle! This recipe is also great in a Crock Pot, though that method takes longer. I like to set the temperature to Low before bed. What a hearty, indulgent breakfast to wake up to!  I've been cooking up batches of my Oatmeal with Quinoa for years, long before I'd heard of the Instant Pot, and have even gifted the dry ingredients to health-conscious friends and family, who've suggested I sell this. Shark Tank, here I come! Oatmeal with Quinoa Featured

Sending NAKED Emails

Although SN and I started out in a long-distance relationship, with me in New Mexico and him in Michigan, drinking that famous Flint water, we haven't spent much time apart since before our wedding 6 years ago, when I took a family reunion trip to the Seychelles and Paris without him. (He "had to work", but I think the idea of 3 weeks nonstop with my mom terrified him. To be fair, it was pretty scary!) Now, he has been gone on a business trip for nearly 2 weeks and I'm kinda starting to miss him. He says he misses me too. So, I decided to have some fun and send him the following email: Subject: Here are some NAKED photos for you Message: Be sure to delete these after you look at them. The photos, one titled "hubba hubba" and the other "you know you love it": "I ain't afraid to show it, show it, show it, show it." "I'm sexy and I know it." Yep, that is a 100% collar-free, naked Pica . Sexy Nerd&#

3 Minute Toaster/Convection Oven Smores

These are perfect when you're craving a quick, sugary treat. They work equally well in a toaster oven and a convection oven. Best of all, compared to eating an entire bag of Oreos (something I have never  done), they're quite healthy. What's that, you say? You already know how to make s'mores in the toaster oven? Well then, sit back and enjoy the ooey-gooey marshmallowy photos. (And if you're someone who works with me, please keep the "I've seen her polish off an entire bag of Oreo cookies" nonsense to yourself.)  Step 1: Put desired amount of graham crackers on a toaster oven/convection oven-safe pan.   Looks like it's time to clean this pan, Sexy Nerd Optional 1st step, which is Sexy Nerd's favorite: Spread peanut butter on each graham cracker (I'm not much of a peanut butter fan - WHAT?!? - so I skip this step.) Cover with yummy marshmallows. Top with chocolate chips. Place in the toaster o

Hello Fresh Complaints

Hello, my bloggy friends. I have a HelloFresh complaint and believe they are pulling a scam. Yours truly came *this close* to falling for it.  Maybe scam is too harsh of a word. Sneaky? You can decide for yourself. The fact that there are so many Hello Fresh complaints online does seem suspicious. My main complaint about Hello Fresh has to do with their promotional rate, which seems like it is set up to be intentionally misleading (more on this below). Despite so many people complaining about being charged more than they thought they'd agreed to, Hello Fresh maintains this as part of their business model and continues to mislead. So it's intentional, right? I do not recommend Hello Fresh. For starters, the service is just ingredients-by-mail with recipes, not meals. You can buy your own ingredients for much less, especially now that most grocery stores conveniently offer pickup and delivery. Excellent recipes are easy to find.  Click here for a list of top-rated, reader-favorit

Dental Memes

As the manager of two successful dental offices, my favorite memes are ones I can share with my dentistry dream team.  Happy Team = Living the Dream! You don't have to work in dentistry to enjoy these. After all, everyone is a dental patient. You have visited the dentist within at least the year...right? (No guilt if you haven't! I've scheduled patients who haven't seen a dentist since the 1970s. Dentists, dental assistants, dental hygienists, and dental administrators have seen it all. We love this field because we love helping our patients. It's never too late to get back on track!) Funny Memes for Dentists Reminder: National Dentist's Appreciation Day is March 6th!
