Cinnamon Roll Waffles

May 21, 2012

Do you ever have those mornings where you are just dragging your feet to get anything done? That is the type of day I am having…

I’m pretty sure it’s because I woke up at 4:30. I was wide awake and ready to go… But I forced myself to fall back asleep, and when I woke up… It had happened… I turned into a super grouch! Which ment I didn’t want to do anything except pull the covers over my head, and stay there all day!

Fortunetly, I have a three year old that needed me, so I was forced out of my funk by a ball of energy that ran and jumped on my bed insisting that I give him TWENTY FIVE hugs and kisses! {He’s big on the number thing lately} How can that not force you into a some what better mood?

SO I threw on some comfy clothes, and headed to the kitchen. All I wanted to make was cereal. It’s effortless, which would make it that much easier to be lazy. But when I opened the fridge for the milk…..

You guessed it! We had none. Zip. Zilch.

By this time, I was literally growling, and groaning. In fact I’d go as far as saying I was acting like a child throwing a mini tantrum. No milk means I was forced to do one of two things.

1. Go to the store and buy more. Which requires me to get dressed, and look some what presentable….


2. Make toast, and call it a day.

Luckily, just as I was leaning in the direction of the toast, I spotted something in the fridge. These are normally forbidden in my home, but I had a moment of weakness the last time we were shopping, and happened to pick some up… Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls! But I didn’t feel like waiting the 15 loooooong minutes for them to bake. My solution? Waffle iron.

Cinnamon Roll Waffles

1 can of cinnamon rolls, the brand and flavor are up to you
a waffle iron

PREP WORK: Heat your waffle iron for a few minutes so it gets nice and warm. Spray it with some non-stick spray.

GETTING STARTED: Bust open that can. Don’t let the pop scare you… Unless you have a three year old that loves to watch you jump, and waits patiently for the loud noise!  Then, place one cinnamon roll on each side of your waffle iron.

BAKE BAKE BAKE: Now, you need to close the lid. Push. Hard. You want the rolls to flatten. Mine took about 1-1/2 minutes to bake, but you may need to adjust your baking time according to how hot you iron gets!

Now here is the fun part!

Place your glaze in the microwave for 15 seconds. Make sure you don’t leave the metal lid on. That could be bad. Drizzle the glaze over your waffles, and enjoy!

From start to finish, this meal takes me five minutes. You can’t beat that!
