Breakfast Quickies

I just re-read my title and I hope you did not get the wrong idea… I was thinking of waffles! We love waffles in this family, and I have to say that when Mom does not have time to get to store for staples like fresh bread for toast (More frequently than I would like to admit.) I turn to the breakfast quickie waffle. If you think ahead the night before you can do Belgian yeast raised waffles or if you keep buttermilk lying around you can have buttermilk waffles. But when you are truly stressed and only have two eggs and a little milk in the fridge it is nice to have this recipe in your repertoire. These waffles are fast, easy and can adjust to any filling. I like cinnamon chips, maple chips, chocolate chips, crumbled bacon, and pecans. Once I even draped a slice of prosciutto over these babies and baked it right in! They were delish! Sweet, soft waffle, salty chewy pork products… yeah… it worked! So the next time your family is hungry and you are too lazy to go to the market, get out your waffle iron and make some magic! (Waffle magic that is… )

Breakfast Quickie Waffles Adapted from the book Waffles from morning to midnight by Dorie Greenspan

4 T butter (melted and reserved)
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 T sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups of milk
2 large eggs, beaten
Assorted toppings like mini cinnamon chips, maple chips, chocolate chips, chopped toasted pecans, fresh fruit, prosciutto or chopped cooked bacon

Preheat your waffle iron. In a large bowl add the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir with a whisk. Add the milk, beaten eggs and vanilla and stir until combined. Add the melted butter and stir again. Lightly spray your iron wiht cooking spray. Following your waffle iron directions, add the batter, let sit for 10 seconds and then sprinkle your toppings onto each waffle. Close the lid and cook until browned and crisp. Serve the waffles immediately with maple syrup or whipped cream… or if for dessert, a scoop of ice cream!

    Made these for the kids this morning and when I asked what they thought of them I got a resounding “YUM”! (And I just made them plain with no additions). I love how they are so quick…no need to whip the egg whites seperately from the egg. Thanks for the recipe!

    1. My pleasure! You are such a nice Mom to make waffles on a school morning!
