{taste this} cinnamon roll waffles

I didn’t really post about this (because we didn’t really do anything terribly exciting, ha ha), but The Saint and I celebrated our twelfth wedding anniversary on April 2nd … that is a DOZEN years of wedded bliss!! We have been together since we were 19 and 24 and I am so proud that we have toughed out the lows, celebrated the highs, currently working on the “in sickness & in health”, definitely waded through the “or poorer” part of our vows and have come through on the other side with two amazing boys – The Bugs – and a marriage that I wouldn’t trade for the world!

Can I tell you one of the reasons why I love The Saint so much? And how you know he’s married to a food/craft blogger even if he doesn’t totally “get” the whole blogging thing? He bought me a waffle maker and a rolling pin for our anniversary!! Now that is true l-o-v-e!! And if you know me, you can believe that I had new cupcake pans and a food processor on my Christmas list ;)

One of the first things I was dying to try in my waffle maker was cinnamon roll waffles!!  So … I did!  And so can you! 

What you need to {try this}:  refrigerated cinnamon rolls (with frosting), waffle maker, squeeze bottle.  The end.

Separate the cinnamon rolls and place them in your pre-heated waffle maker.  Waffle according to your maker’s instructions … mine literally took about 2 – 3 minutes.  Watch them closely so they don’t burn – they cook quick!  Why would I ever preheat my oven and bake them for 20 minutes again?!  This is GENIUS!! 

While your waffles are cooking, put the frosting in a squeeze bottle so you can drizzle to your heart’s delight … like this:

These are best served warm right after the above mentioned drizzling!  And I’m totally bummed that I thought of this idea after I made these waffles and they were scarfed down at The Bigger Bug’s 12th birthday breakfast … but how awesome would some breakfast sausage or bacon sandwiched between two of these babies be?!  You know what … I’ll try it and let you know ;)
Ya’ll, life is short.  Breakfast doesn’t have to be complicated.  Make cinnamon roll waffles!

    Simple solution to clean your waffle iron – while still warm brush gently with an old toothbrush & wipe with a paper towel. Everything seems to wipe right out before cooling and hardening into place. Love the cinnamon waffle idea, THANKS! Surprise! Waffle irons can be used for grilled sandwiches as well, as I learned accidentally when in a rush and mistakenly pulled it out and preheated it rather than the griller (which are stored side by side). Imagine the surprise when I removed the cooked sandwich with squares and finally noticed my error- lol

  34. How would you make this work with frozen cinnamon rolls, just let them thaw for a few minutes??

  35. I just linked you to my blog, http://missmessycrocker.blogspot.com/. Check it out.. what a great idea…I am thinking real maple syrup instead of the cream drizzle…..yummy!

    I gotta get off your pages!!! I am gaining weight thru my drolling!!!! Guess whats for Breakfast!!

  37. Boy talk about some good eats girl, oh yum. Thanks for all these awesome recipes, granolas and all. What a great hubs, gets you what you really want, think it’s time I got a waffle maker instead of eating those frozen things.
    My problem is I love to eat, if I ate how I’d love to and as much would be one huge old mama. With no thyroid have enuf trouble keeping myself decent, not skinny but decently fluffy. In size 12-14’s. Was thinner for about 3 or so years but too much of Burger King for a year and gained almost 20 lbs. Gotta love their creamy ice cream cones. Groan.
    Have great rest of week food lady.
