My son suggested waffles from the freezer for dinner, and from there I’m not sure what happened in my thought process…but somehow we ended up with Waffle Breakfast Pizzas 🙂
Ever have one of those days that you come home from work exhausted, and the last thing you want to do is make dinner?!
That was me last night.
I planned to make a decent dinner, but just couldn’t bring myself to do it (I mean, it will still be good for me to make tonight so nothing went to waste at least).
I should do more breakfast-for-dinner meals.
They are so fun and for some reason the kids get so excited about having breakfast-for-dinner.
Almost like they are breaking a rule or something.
All it took was ten minutes and our breakfasty dinner was on the table. I served it with a side of fresh fruit, but if I had planned this I would have included tater tots as well.
How to Make Waffle Breakfast Pizzas
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and pop your freezer waffles in the toaster.
While those are toasting, make scrambled eggs and set those aside.
I keep bags of diced up ham in the freezer just for occasions like these.
We also use them to make omelettes, top on pizzas, and to put in homemade soup.
I just picked one of the smaller bags of ham and put in the same pan as the eggs to warm it through.
I lined a baking sheet with parchment paper and topped each toasted waffle with the eggs and ham…
…and I let the kids pile on the cheese!
Five minutes in the oven is all it takes for the cheese to melt beautifully!
You can’t have a waffle without syrup, so we drizzled ours on top.
Yes, it was a little sticky but not too bad.
My husband and I added hot sauce to our waffle breakfast pizzas along with our syrup (YUM!)
