The line between dessert and breakfast is a fine one, once you think about it. Fresh fruit, carbs, sugar, and syrups play such an important part in each of these meals that you really can’t help but wonder: Why not serve your favorite breakfast dishes instead of dessert? What we’re saying is that French toast tastes good no matter what time of day it is.
We already know doughnut walls are a major must-have for parties this year, but take your breakfast obsession to the next level at your next bash. Forget the cakes and pies and try out these breakfast-for-dessert dishes:
Berry Waffle Breakfast Sandwich
These jazzed-up frozen waffles can use whatever seasonal fruits you desire. The best part about this easy-to-make dessert is that it’s portable, so you can mingle while you munch.

Crêpes With Strawberry Compote
Sure, crêpes can be made as a vessel for savory fillings, but we like them most when they’re sweet. A delicately sweet crêpe holds a beautiful, barely-cooked strawberry filling that’s as fragrant as it is tasty.

Funfetti Birthday Cake Waffles
Not a fan of the traditional birthday cake? These festive waffles are made from cake mix but cooked in a waffle iron, thus giving them that fluffy yet crisp texture you know and love. Top these with whipped cream and plenty of sprinkles.

Want to make this already dessert-like breakfast dish even more sweetly indulgent? Instead of bread, soak pound cake in the classic batter. Is it excessive? Yeah… excessively awesome.
