If you are looking for a great breakfast idea I highly recommend my hubbies Belgian Waffles with Strawberries and Whipped Cream. I mentioned last week that the kiddos had gotten use to some hot breakfasts while on Christmas break. Well this morning they slept in and then rolled out of bed begging my hubby to make them his yummy Belgian Waffles with Strawberries and Whipped Cream. I will note the hubby was a bit sleepy as he had been up all night long working on a project for me (he’s such a good hubby ha ha). He quickly got the new waffle iron I bought him for Christmas turned on (this thing is amazing, you can find the Presto 03510 FlipSide Belgian Waffle Maker on Amazon if you are looking for a great Waffle Iron).
Belgian Waffles with Strawberries and Whipped Cream
Since he was great and made the waffles I pitched in and made the strawberry topping and whipped cream. This Belgian Waffles recipe is so perfect. All the flavors go so well together. So fluffy and turn out so perfect. Note that these waffles are so big and just one fills me up. The kiddos are always super excited when he makes them as they can toss on their own favorite toppings. They are perfect with just butter and maple syrup too!
