Waffles used to be something we only made on the weekends when I had more time to devote to our early morning meal. In the past few years though, it's been convenient for me to prepare a triple batch on Saturday mornings and then freeze all the extras. That way we can pull out what we need throughout the week and simply reheat in the toaster.
When I first became a mom we would purchase a big box of waffles from our local Sam's Club, it really was a reasonable price for all of those waffles we would get. But then I discovered just how simple it is to make your own. And how much better they taste too. And better for you.
We have quite a few breakfast items I like to have stocked in the freezer and waffles are definitely top of the list. I always like trying new variations, but you can't beat a basic waffle with maple syrup. We've got school starting in less than one month so I surely will have as many of these stashed away as possible for those rushed mornings.
Here are just a few variations that we have loved:
Easy Homemade Waffles
Blueberry Muffin Waffles
Overnight Oatmeal Waffles
Freezer directions: Once you have prepared your choice of waffles and they have cooled, place them in a single layer onto a baking sheet. Put into the freezer for about one hour, or until frozen. Then you can transfer to a large freezer bag. This way they will not stick together. Store in freezer until ready to use.
When ready to enjoy, remove desired number of waffles and reheat in the toaster.
