Breakfast for dinner. I don’t know why I don’t have it on the menu more. The boys love it and I hear no complaints for the evening meal which is a huge bonus. I like it because it is fast and easy to prepare, especially when using Krusteaz mixes.
This week I had Pancakes on my weekly planner, but at the last minute someone mentioned waffles and I said sure we can do that! It’s been a really long time since I’ve made waffles. Hence, my mini disaster below. Just wait til you see!
I asked Krusteaz to send me their gluten free items because that is what I am eating this year. They make gluten free pancakes, corn bread, brownies and muffins. First, I made the blueberry muffins earlier in the day and surprised the boys for an after school snack! They would be perfect for our breakfast for dinner side, plus an easy breakfast the next day. Yum!
I was excited to get to use my brand new KitchenAid mixer that had been sitting in its box all of January when I couldn’t eat any type of flour or baked good. Though Krusteaz mixes aren’t hard and stirring by hand would have been just fine, just not as fun!
I followed the directions to make waffles on the buttermilk pancake mix. Easy peasy. Until it was time to get the dusty waffle iron out. I cleaned it up, sprayed it down with oil so the batter wouldn’t stick and watched it closely so I wouldn’t under or over bake. But guess what? The waffles still wanted to stick! Each and every one, though I sprayed more and more oil on it each time. Ugh! Hubby wasn’t home or I know he would have been laughing and laughing (but maybe understand what I was doing wrong?!). I thought the kids would complain they weren’t in neat waffle form, but they ate every bite.
I added a few chocolate chips to the mix and topped mine with blueberries and honey. Muffins and sausage on the side and I even made fresh squeezed orange juice. It was so good! Breakfast for dinner will be happening more often at my house. Even if mini disasters occur. 🙂
