Out-of-This-World Waffles

When I don’t have time to make the dinner I planned or I don’t have a plan for dinner at all (!), my first thought is breakfast. I almost always have the ingredients on hand to make pancakes, waffles, or eggs. When the kids get to vote, these waffles win every time. They are easy, quick, and delicious. A serving of fresh fruit on top makes this a meal at my house on a busy weeknight. I would love to know what you serve on your waffles for dinner or breakfast, so leave a comment and let us try your family’s favorite combination.

If you don’t have a waffle maker, here is my recommendation:

It is an investment, but one I have never regretted as we use ours often. Remember to brush it with vegetable oil each time before you begin and the waffles will just slide out when done.
