Christmas mornings in my house, as well as most families with young kids, are a whirlwind. Typically our morning would start around 4-5am, approximately 2-3 hours after Santa has finished his (HER) Christmas duties stuffing our stockings and wrapping gifts.
After the kids spend about 15 minutes ripping their gifts open, it is my husband’s job to start assembling toys, and juicing them up with batteries. My job is to get rid of all the wrapping paper and boxes, plus get breakfast going.
With only a handful of hours of sleep, and a house filled with kids bouncing off the walls before sunrise (thanks Santa….) breakfast has to be easy. Because it is Christmas morning, I want to give them something special, not the typical cold cereal that I dish up on school days. But I want it to be something almost as easy to prepare as that cold cereal.
This year, I’ll be making these easy cinnamon roll waffles, they require little to no prep thanks to Annie’s Homegrown Organic Cinnamon Rolls. Their cinnamon rolls can be found ready to go in the refrigerator section of your grocery store, and are as easy to prepare as that school day cereal. As great as they are prepared according to the packaged directions, sometimes it’s fun to use them in a way they were not intended for. To top of the easy continence factor we over caffeinated, over tired moms crave….. These cinnamon rolls are hydrogenated oil and corn syrup free, and made with unbleached flour… so basically they are wholesome and homemade, am I right?
Thanks to Black Friday, I came home with a new waffle iron and immediately knew I wanted to make my Annie’s Cinnamon Rolls into some Cinnamon Roll Waffles, and then top them off with some festive eggnog glaze, and pomegranate arils. Which is EXACTLY the type of breakfast I need to whip up quickly for the kids on Christmas morning.
Cinnamon Roll Waffles with Eggnog Glaze
2 cans of Annie’s Organic Cinnamon Rolls
1 cup powdered sugar
¼ cup eggnog
¼ tsp nutmeg
Pure Maple Syrup (optional for serving)
Pomegranate arils ( optional for serving)
Prepare your glaze by whisking the frosting package of each cinnamon roll can together with powdered sugar, eggnog and nutmeg until smooth. Set aside for serving.
Heat your waffle iron according to the manufacturer's directions.
Place one cinnamon roll in at a time, and cook until the waffle iron indicates they are finished.
Serve warm waffles with glaze, syrup and pomegranate arils.
(Yields 10 waffles)
