A hot breakfast with the best homemade waffle recipe is something I always desire when I wake up on a cold winter day in Ohio. Living in our old farmhouse, the wood floors are chilly and the air has a draft to it. It’s some of the charm of it’s history but it can be a bit hard to leave the comfort of our warm bed. So, a warm breakfast is just the thing I want to make for my boys each morning and enjoy myself.
But who has time for a big farmhouse waffle breakfast when the bus is coming in 20 minutes and the kids are still in their warm footie pajamas? (Undoubtedly because they are the most warm thing they own, and maybe I want some of those pj’s for myself!) But you know me, I’m not one to give up. So, I found a great solution to our hot breakfast in the cold winter mornings. And I can’t wait to share it with you.
But first, coffee.
Seattle’s Best Coffee®sent me a box full of delicious coffee to try and I have to admit it made me a bit giddy. The mugs are adorable and the coffee canister is beautiful – but the coffee is really what I need. Have you tried their coffee yet? I found it easily in Kroger and there was great value to what you get with the variety of K-Cups and ground coffee. Why buy the expensive stuff when you can get great coffee for less?
Once the coffee is brewing, I get to work making breakfast. I like to enjoy a hot cup of coffee to warm me up. I found that the Seattle’s Best Coffee® has a smooth taste that isn’t bitter. I enjoy my coffee black or with a bit of whipping cream with it. Seattle’s Best Coffee® is an upgrade from the coffee I usually buy and it’s price is about the same as what I was buying.
Now, like all things that are easier during a busy weekday, you have to prep. And on this morning, I was prepping for the week. On Saturday or Sunday morning we usually make the big waffle breakfast and take the leftovers and put them in the refrigerator to enjoy all week long – hot breakfast! We make a double batch of the recipe you’ll find below. Just pop the waffles in the toaster on the busy weekday mornings and you’re done.
*If you want to make the waffles last through the week you’ll need a waffle maker that divides the waffle into smaller parts that will fit into a toaster.
The waffles go great with the coffee. I like my waffles with a big batch of butter and syrup.
This hot breakfast is fun way for us to gather before a busy Saturday or before church on Sundays. And the fact that it preps us for the week ahead – its just so clever. But like every good breakfast, coffee just makes it all come together. The sweetness of the syrup in the waffle with the smooth coffee – its one of my favorite flavor combinations.
If you’re looking for a slower morning – to prep for your busy weekday mornings, make sure to grab some Seattle’s Best Coffee® and this waffle recipe. Trust me, it’s the best together on any day of the week.
