Cinnamon Roll Waffles

2 May

Ok, so this is not a recipe. I cannot, in good conscious, call something that has one ingredient (and that one ingredient happens to be prepackaged) a recipe. But, it is a pretty darn clever way to make breakfast in 2 minutes. We are having a birthday at our house today and have all kinds of crazy things to do on top of celebrate my munchkin’s special day, so everything on theย menu is slotted for “as easy as can be.” My kids loved the icing on top and still wanted to drown theirs in syrup. My husband, on the other hand, declined syrup. His comment was: “No thanks. I’m not even going to pretend that this is a waffle.” Fair enough :). But they really turned out tasty. Kind of a toasted cinnamon roll!

P.S. I will never, ever get used to opening these darn ‘pop open’ refrigerated packages! I seriously have a mini panic attack just before I start twisting the things – my entire body tenses up in preparation for the inevitable, yet never predictable, POP! And it’s almost worse when they don’t pop, and you have to press on the seam to make them do it. It kills me. I am aware that this is highly irrational, but that changes nothing.

Pop open cinnamon rolls and separate. Place a roll in each waffle section of waffle iron and press down firmly. Cook until golden brown. Top with icing or syrup…or both!

Belgian Waffles

20 Aug

Sick of breakfast stuff yet? Me neither!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ In my opinion, the two meals that matter most are breakfast and dessert. I love them both equally. Waffles top my list, so long as they are good waffles. I can do pancakes from a mix, but not waffles. They are dry and stick in your throat, so they are no good unless you have a tall glass of milk right next to your plate. You should never have to wash your food down in order to literally get it to go down. I love, love these Belgian waffles! The egg whites make them so light, and I love that you use the egg yolks too; I don’t get that guilty feeling that comes from throwing away perfectly good yolks, like some poor chicken sacrificed itself for no good reason (ok, I know most eggs are not fertilized…but guilt does funny things to your rationale). I’m usually the one on waffle-iron duty, so, in theory, I should be the last one to eat – but I don’t like to wait. Waffles are best fresh out of the cooker, and these are good enough to eat plain, so I just eat as I go. ๐Ÿ™‚ Feel free to dress them up and drench them in syrup too. But be prepared to eat plenty!!!
