Works For Me Wednesdsay--Quick Breakfast


Among the millions of things that I learned from my mom, are the easy things you can do to provide a great breakfast for your family and a quick alternative to toast or cereal (again).
I know lots of people buy either frozen pancakes or frozen waffles. This can get expensive and here is where my tip comes in...Anytime that I make waffles or pancakes (breakfast or breakfast for dinner), I freeze what is leftover. Right now there is a bag of pancakes and a bag of waffles in my freezer. Reheating the pancakes is super quick, pop them in the microwave for 30 second-1 minute. It could be just as easy to reheat the waffles, but I like to microwave them for 30 seconds or so and then drop them in my toaster to crisp them up. (Which is still quicker and with less mess than whipping them up fresh!)

We do this, too. I also make 2 loaves of texas toast into french toast and freeze on cookie sheets til I can put them into gallon size freezer bags.

Genius. I've tried to keep waffles before but they are always lip and blah. Heat them and TOAST them. A-Ha! You're a Genius. Blessings! ~Whitney

p.s., I like to put corn in my 'cakes. Have you tried it?

Thanks for the trip down memory lane. My Mom used to freeze a triple batch of waffles in bread sacks. The 8 of us would go through them so fast they didn't need freezer bags. If we were really lucky we'd get them with hot cocoa on cold school mornings. :)
