Never buy frozen waffles again! You’ll love how easy it is to make homemade waffles for your family with this recipe and I even include freezing tips for the leftovers…if there are any!
Do you like to make a big breakfast for the weekend? We do and my family loves Homemade Waffles. And what better way to celebrate the weekend then with the family gathered around the table and a batch of hot homemade waffles with tons of butter and warm syrup. And let’s not forget the bacon!
This is an EASY recipe that I know you’re going to want to print out and use again and again. And the good thing about this recipe is you can freeze whatever waffles your family doesn’t eat…if you have leftovers.
Sometimes I even like to make a double batch so we do have leftovers. I especially did this when our children were young. It was easy to take a frozen waffle out of the oven and toast it up to serve for breakfast on a busy school morning. Make sure you check out the freezer tips for leftover waffles below also.
Family Favorite Breakfast
When our son, Michael, was little he went through a phase of only wanting waffles to eat for dinner. Yes, dinner. No butter, no syrup, just toasted waffles. So I always made sure I had plenty of waffles in the freezer! Don’t worry, he definitely grew out of that phase.
I definitely think I might even make Homemade Strawberry Sauce to serve alone with these waffles this weekend. Make sure you check out that recipe too! Or how about topping the waffles with homemade whipped cream? That would be really delicious! Make sure you check out this post on tips for homemade whipped cream and flavored whipped cream.
