Breakfast with Elmo
Get your morning giggle on with Elmo and these fruity breakfast dumplings! Turn ordinary wonton wrappers into a healthy treat that's sure to make your family smile.
Step 1: Things You'll Need
Gather these ingredients to make Elmo's Apple Berry Breakfast Dumplings.
Step 2: Turn Up The Heat
Preheat the oven to 400˚F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Step 3: Make the Berry-licious Filling
In a small bowl, combine berries, apples, fresh ginger, and applesauce.
Little Hands Tip: Ask your child what he thinks this will taste like.
Step 4: Simmer
Bring a large pot of water to a simmer.
Step 5: Dollop on Some Filling
Count out eight wonton wrappers and place them on a flat surface.
Little Hands Tip: Try counting by two's and even four's! Put some apple and berry mixture in the center of the wonton wrapper.
Step 6: Half Moon Shapes
Next, moisten the edge of the wrapper with water and fold it in half. Press the edges to seal the dumpling into a half moon shape.
Step 7: Count to 60
Place wontons in the simmering water, three at a time, for about one minute.
Step 8: Drain the Dumplings
Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel. Transfer dumplings to the prepared baking sheet.
Step 9: Sugar and Spice
In a small bowl, combine the cinnamon and brown sugar. Sprinkle the mixture over the dumplings.
Little Hands Tip: Pretend the mixture is giggle powder and laugh as you sprinkle.
Step 10: Brown and Crisp
Bake 8-10 minutes, or until the dumplings are crisp and lightly browned.
Step 11: Elmo Says, "Yum, Yum, Dumplings!"
Let cool slightly and serve warm. Enjoy these fun breakfast treats by dipping them in the vanilla yogurt!
