Cinnamon Roll Waffles

This isn’t so much a recipe as an idea. I’ve seen it around Pinterest, along with everything else people are putting in the waffle maker. It does kind of make me want to waffle everything. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I made these Cinnamon Roll Waffles for my kids on Halloween morning. Because they weren’t going to have enough sugar that day. Hashtag: WTH was I thinking?! Of course, they loved them.

I’m assuming you could make these with homemade cinnamon rolls, but y’all know that’s not how I roll. Roll…get it? Cinnamon roll? Hahaha, I crack myself up. And I’m pretty sure it’s not the first time I’ve made that joke on here. #Lame. {Moving on…} I will bust out with Quick & Easy Cinnamon Rolls on occasion, but for these, I used canned cinnamon rolls by Pillsbury. The ‘syrup’ is just a little of the icing that comes with them. Then we added sprinkles. Because it was Halloween and sprinkles are fun. (Even though I think they taste nasty. Kids like ’em however.)

Sausage and Waffle Breakfast Casserole

What?! Another breakfast casserole? Yep. Another one. I can’t help myself. I love breakfast food, and I love casseroles, so when I see a new recipe…well…I just have to make it. Not to mention I had bought this ginormous box of Eggo Waffles from Sam’s Club (because they were on their “instant savings” and I’m such a sucker for a sale), thinking the kids would eat them up…and yes, you see where this is going. I have a bunch of waffles in my freezer.

This is a very good way to use up those frozen waffles! I love the slightly sweet maple flavor in this casserole, paired with the sausage, and I liked the texture of the waffles. This is more ‘bread-y’ than some of my other breakfast casseroles, but I liked it. My kids….one out of three. One of them doesn’t like any egg-based casserole (it’s a texture thing) and my youngest will not eat sausage or eggs…he had plain waffles. For dinner. Don’t judge.

Sausage and Waffle Breakfast Casserole

8 frozen Eggo waffles, slightly thawed and cut into bite-sized cubes
1 pound (16 ounces) sausage, cooked and crumbled (I used homemade turkey sausage; can also use maple sausage for more maple flavor in the casserole)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
6 large eggs
1-1/4 cups milk
1/4 cup maple syrup (I used this Quick and Easy Pancake Syrup)
salt and pepper, to taste

  • Spray an 8-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Add half of the cubed waffles in a single layer.
  • Top waffles with half the sausage and half of the cheese.
  • Repeat layers: waffles, sausage, and remaining 1/2 cup cheese.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, syrup, salt and pepper. Pour egg mixture over the layered ingredients in casserole.
  • Cover casserole with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or overnight.
  • Bake at 325 degrees 45 to 50 minutes. (If using a glass baking pan, place cold dish into cold oven and then turn oven on 325. This allows the glass dish to warm up slowly and avoid possible shattering.)

*In my opinion, this was better after it had a chance to cool, and the next day as well. The waffles had a better texture…I’m funny about textures…and I wonder where my kids get it from!

Monte Cristo Waffle Sandwiches for #BreakfastNight {#GIVEAWAY, #sponsored}

Did you know that September is National Breakfast Month? It’s pretty well documented on the blog here that I love breakfast food, and that we do breakfast for dinner. A lot. We aren’t the only ones… In a national survey, Krusteaz found that nine out of ten (91 percent) Americans say they eat breakfast for dinner, with 56 percent doing so once a month or more. For families with children in the house, the trend is even more prevalent as 67 percent say they have breakfast for dinner once a month or more. With that in mind, Krusteaz has declared Wednesdays as  “Breakfast Night“. It totally works for me!

With all the sports activities my kids have going on right now, dinner needs to be pretty quick and easy. That’s one of the reasons why I love doing “breakfast suppers”. When I can find shortcuts, like using Krusteaz pancake and waffle mixes, well I’m all over that too. Last Wednesday we made pancakes and Belgian waffles using Krusteaz mixes. Two kids ate pancakes, while Number One and I had these Monte Cristo Waffle Sandwiches. I made mine into a Monte Cristo – which is basically combining everything fabulous into one sandwich…it’s a French Toast/Belgian Waffle/Cheesy/Meaty/Sweet and Savory combo.

Monte Cristo Waffle Sandwich

2 servings
*Prepared waffles (My waffles were about 8 inches, so I used two and cut them in half; if you are using small 4 inch waffles, then you will need 4 of them)
4 slices Swiss cheese
1/4 pound thin sliced ham
1/4 pound thin sliced turkey
6 slices cooked bacon
cranberry sauce (the canned kind works great for this…can also use fruit preserves instead)
Dijon mustard (optional)
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

Pam cooking spray or butter

*We made waffles with Krusteaz Belgian Waffle Mix

  • Heat a griddle, panini press or George Foreman (this is what I used).
  • Combine eggs, milk and cinnamon (if using) in a large, shallow bowl.
  • Dip one waffle (or one half) into egg mixture, flipping to coat each side.
  • Place waffle on greased or sprayed griddle and top with 2 slices of cheese, 1/2 the ham and turkey, 3 slices of bacon, and top with thin slices of cranberry sauce or a tablespoon of jam/preserves and desired amount of mustard (if using).
  • Dip second waffle (or half) into egg mixture, coat both sides, and place on top of meat/cheese.
  • Close top if using a panini press or George Foreman and let cook until top is lightly browned and crisp. If using skillet or griddle, cook one side until browned and set, then flip to cook other side.
  • Repeat with remaining ingredients.
