Just because your mornings are rushed, breakfast doesn’t have to be boring. These Strawberry Whipped Cream Waffles will get your day off to a great start!
Now that school is back in session, our mornings have gotten a lot busier. That means fancy breakfasts are out and quick meals are in. Quick doesn’t have to mean boring though. I’m a big fan of taking shortcuts while still making meals fun and delicious. Eggo waffles make that pretty easy to accomplish.
My girls love Eggo products so when we went to Target, I let them pick out their favorites. I think little Keira was pretty happy about her Eggo Blueberry Waffles. Ashling chose the Eggo French Toaster Sticks and couldn’t even wait until breakfast. She had to have one as soon as we got home!
I guess I’m a traditionalist because I chose the Eggo Homestyle Waffles. I love to stock up because it’s a quick breakfast that always makes my girls happy. They’re delicious to begin with but I had something even better up my sleeve. I grabbed some whipped cream and strawberries before we left and since we already had sugar at home, I had all the ingredients I needed. I don’t like to make recipes with an entire page of ingredients because outside of the holidays, I usually don’t have time. A simple, four ingredient recipe, is right up my alley! It doesn’t hurt that the main ingredient is Eggo Waffles…yumm!
Now is the perfect time to shop for Eggo products because through September 30th, you’ll get $5 off Crayola products when you buy 3 participating Eggo products with Crayola packaging. Isn’t it great to be able to fuel the mind and body at the same time? We can always use more crayons and my girls thought it was so cool that we found mermaid and princess colors too. You can find these products in all stores and get more info by checking the Target Circular Ad during the first week of September.
Even better, you can download this free activity book for the kids. I love keeping stuff like this in the car so I have it handy when we go out to eat. If we can keep the girls busy, my hubby and I can have an actual conversation instead of listening to “I’m bored” or “When is the food going to be here”. Parents, you know exactly what I’m talking about so don’t forget to bring this with you. It has coloring pages, memory games, word searches and tons of other fun activities to keep the kids entertained while you enjoy your night out.
My family was pretty happy to find out that breakfast was going to be Strawberry Whipped Cream Waffles with a homemade strawberry syrup. If you’ve never made your own strawberry syrup, it’s a lot easier than you’d think. You can even make it ahead of time so that you don’t have to worry about it in the morning.
Start by hulling 16 ounces of fresh strawberries and cutting them in half. Place them in a large saucepan with 1/3 cup of sugar and 1/4 cup of water. Simmer, stirring frequently, until the liquid becomes thick and syrupy (about 20-25 minutes). Finally, pour your ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. If your syrup is too thick, just add a few drops of water until it’s the perfect consistency.
Toast your Eggo Waffles, top it with your delicious syrup and add whipped cream. I thought my little Keira was going to explode when she saw these…that girl sure does get excited when you put whipped cream on her breakfast!
After breakfast, the girls got ready to leave for a mini vacation with daddy and granny. Ashling saw the activity book I’d printed out and decided that it would be fun to bring along on their road trip. Restaurants, road trips…this activity book is really coming in handy!
