Works for Me Wednesday - Homemade Waffles

We enjoy hot breakfasts at our house pretty much daily. We like pancakes, french toast, waffles, sausage links, scrambled eggs... mmmmm! But who has time to make something from scratch every morning?

I used to be a morning person, but since becoming a mom I have a bit harder time getting up and at 'em. So, we resort to cold cereal for breakfast every day... NOT!

About once a week I now spend an hour or so making enough waffles to last us about a week. Then we freeze the extra (think Eggo frozen waffles only healthy, bigger, cheaper and all around better). Sometimes I do the same with french toast or pancakes.

When breakfast rolls around, even my 6-year-old daughter knows how to get out a waffle, nuke it for one minute in the microwave, pour on syrup and enjoy!

You can make whatever your family enjoys and add in fruits like banana or blueberries. I've been "healthifying" ours by using 1/2 wheat flour and 1/2 white flour. No matter how you do it, it is much cheaper and healthier than what you'll buy in the store. And making one big batch (or double or triple batch) saves time in the long run.

Works for me!

Everytime I make that many I'm lucky if there are any leftover. That's one morning at my house! :)

We eat hot breakfasts every day here. I just try to start early! While breakfast cooks, put in my second load of laundry for the day. This works especialy well on the days thatI make waffles, because I don't have to stand over thm constantly.

I love homemade waffles! You know, French Toast is easy to make and freezes well, too.
