Baffled Over Waffles

February 23, 2012

IMG_6569Blog

So much to say about this breakfast!!

I don’t have a waffle maker and frozen waffles just aren’t something that I’ve thought to buy in years. But after reading this Shu Box post followed by this post at Cait’s Plate, a major craving was formed!

IMG_6565Blog

I picked up some Kashi 7 Grain frozen waffles (which won the waffle ingredient list/nutrition competition in the frozen aisle for being 100% whole grain and having 98% simple ingredients). The waffles themselves were delicious – very vanilla-y!!!

I have a thing about cold yogurt on hot BREAKFAST foods. On dinner foods, I like it chilled on something hot for contrast, but for breakfast I don’t want my hot food to be cooled off by cold yogurt. I also have a fear of heating up yogurt – that it will separate or taste funny.

But I love greek yogurt and really wanted to simulate Cait’s stacks, so I took a risk and microwaved a half cup for 15 seconds. It turned out perrrrrfect!! Just barely warm enough to keep breakfast warm.

Check two!

I also heated the banana and blueberries in another bowl so everything was nice and toasty!! Sunbutter and chia on top!

Cutting through the layers was so much fun. And these waffles were so aromatic on the vanilla spectrum that I really loved them.

Tea, per usual!

This was a great breakfast! Excited to add it to the rotation. I ultimately wish I could make my own waffles from scratch, but a waffle maker is such a unitasker and I just don’t know if I’d get my money’s worth, and plus I prefer pancakes in general. But fun to have every once in a while in this form!

My waffle iron has different cast iron plates and I use it all the time, one for waffles, one for panini sandwiches and one that is just flat and can be used for grilled anything…and best thing, just toss the plates in the dishwasher or they rinse off easily!!

I just use mine as-is to make paninis or grilled cheese. As long as you don’t care about the waffle-like appearance it tastes just the same!

I’m really looking forward to it, too! Oh, and on the waffle iron… have you ever thought of just getting a lodge cast-iron one for the stove? I don’t have a waffle iron, but just got my first two pre-seasoned pieces from lodge and I like them so far. No chemical t-fal non-stick stuff, either.

I am a total waffle maniac. Also , I love to make french toast waffles with leftover slices of bread that are a tad stale. You just dip the slice in some egg/milk/ spices and then put it into the waffle maker…. heavenly!

I love frozen waffles but don’t usually buy them because they’re high in Points for Weight Watchers. Haven’t tried the Kashi, I’ll have to investigate. I agree, a waffle maker is too big to buy since it only does one thing. I think I’ll stick with my frozen ones!

Oooh I absolutely love the idea of nuking the yogurt for a little bit! I’ve never thought of that but I’m definitely going to try it for my next stack :)

Glad this breakfast is going to make it into the rotation – it’s definitely one of my favorites (plus it makes me feel like I can give back a bit since so many of your breakfasts have made it into MY rotation!)

That is a huge breakfast – should hold you for a long time.
I use the kodiak cakes mix for waffles and that works great. I like having the waffle maker in order to mix things up abit. For me, the taste difference between frozen and fresh is too big to go with frozen – also we wouldn’t use them fast enough then the freezer is filled with that box – all personal choice.
There are some gizmos that have both a sandwich press and waffle maker in the same device. Have a great day

My waffle maker gets used ALL THE TIME. I inherited it from my mom, so it’s DEFINITELY at least sixteen years old, but it got so much play when I was a kid and it still does now. And I only use it for straight up waffles half the time. There’s so much to do with the waffle maker…It makes a killer grilled cheese or grilled peanut butter and banana.
Oh, well, now I know what I’M having for breakfast. Thanks ;)

I have the same yogurt separation fear as you Kath, but I’m glad to hear that it worked! I don’t mind cold yogurt on my waffles but I think that’s because I didn’t think you could heat it without making it all runny and gross. Thanks for the tip!

ohhh my husband and i LOVE waffles. we got a waffle maker for our wedding and use it almost every week! i totally agree with you on not liking to put something cold on my hot breakfast… good idea to warm up the yogurt! i’ll have to try that. and i LOVE your plate! looks like an all around fantastic breakfast!

34 Sabina February 23, 2012 at 9:22 am

i know what you mean about a waffle maker being a uni tasker. that’s why we have a three in one appliance. like another poster, ours (cuisinart) has removable plates, turning it into a griddle, grill/panini maker, or waffle iron. we always make extra waffles, that we freeze and then pop into the toaster to reheat.

Reply

35 Stephanie @ Legally Blinde February 23, 2012 at 9:24 am

Oh my gosh, those waffles look amazing!! They definitely put my breakfast this morning to shame :) I agree with you about the waffle iron – once in a blue moon I really wish I had one, but I can’t justify the space it would take up for such a limited use. I think I might have to pick up a box of frozen waffles pretty soon, though!

I totally agree about the temps of certain foods. I love CRISPY waffles with a slightly fluffy interior and don’t even get me started on soggy waffles. Yuck! I usually end up with a ‘tasting’ plate for waffles: dollop of Greek yogurt, nut butter, ramekin of warm maple syrup, jam, chia, fruit…the usual. ;)

Costco has some great deals on waffle makers if you have a membership. Maybe you could get opensky to do a promo?

I just had Vans waffles with cold yogurt on top and I struggle with that same issue every time I eat that for breakfast. I hate how the yogurt cools down the waffle, but I want it on there for extra protein! Never really thought to microwave the yogurt. Good to know it doesn’t get all funky!

Hi Kath, those look delicious. I think these are a great breakfast choice. I actually encourage my nutrition clients to put these in their cart. They can be a great fast breakfast or even a fun dessert. We have made them into carnival style Waffle Ice cream Sandwiches with powdered sugar on top.

I wrote a post a few months ago on how my 8 year old daughter likes to eat hers. Here is the link:

Wafflemakers show up at thrift stores all the time. I got mine there for $3. I only buy unipurpose kitchen tools at thrift stores. I feel like its easier to get my moneys worth out of it.

You can also make your own frozen waffles. Its way easier and then you know what is in it. I make several dozen once a month and then have them for fast breakfasts or snacks unless my brother eats them all in one sitting.

Hey Kath – Kodiak Cakes Waffle is what I had this am – it is SO easy (esp with a 6 month old baby at home) plus it is real food I can feel good about breaking off a piece for him to gum-down. The waffle iron we use was 18.00 (!!) and is GREAT (Back and Decker 1 inch belgian waffler). No clean-up, compact and if it does break…I am okay with it as it was about the cost of 4 boxes of Kashi waffles (my frozen fave). I got mine at Macy’s just THIS week! Trust me kodiak made into waffles will blow your mind. They are SO doughy but tender. You can use the same 1/2 cup serving, too. Happy 2nd trimester.

I am a newish reader and I have to say you must get a waffle maker of your own. I have been making these oatmeal waffles that you soak the oats overnight ,they are amazing. Just make sure to get a waffle makers that is more than a waffle maker. Ours can be used to make paninis and open up flat as a griddle. I make a big batch of the waffles and freeze them for later, they are best when you warm them back up in a toaster oven. Plus my baby loves them too!

Mmmmmm awesome breakkie! I love eating boxed waffles since I don’t have the machine, and I too love to contrast with tart cold greek yogurt on hot stuff. I think we have really similar breakfast taste buds Kath, hehe.

I hate my hot food getting cold! I also can’t drink a whole cup of hot coffee because it gets cold too fast. Scorch me!

I haven’t thought of buying frozen waffles in forever either, but after seeing these pictures I think a trip to the grocery store is going to happen later this afternoon. Yum! And I love the toppings!

walmart has one for $10. If you are not gonna use it every day, that should work.

LOVE my waffle iron, and we use it almost every weekend (my hubby likes waffles more than pancakes). SO for us, it is definitley a go. Plus, you can make waffles super healthy–just have to have a good recipe and good ingredients :)

Looks yummy!!

WHY have I never thought of preparing frozen waffles like this? You are a saviour.

The waffle stack looks Delicious!! I don’t eat waffles very often either- but make a similar stack with pancakes or protein muffins. I had a waffle maker years ago, but it never, ever got used. I bet I would use it more now (and they are usually SO cheap). I remember in college having one in the dining hall, and everyone would line up to make Belgian waffles (And usually burn them). My husband goes nuts when we’re staying at a hotel that has one for continental breakfast.
The Kashi ones ARE good. I might have to go buy some now… it would definitely save some time in the morning when I’m in a rush!

I’ve been all about waffles lately–you’ve inspired me to eat them sandwich style!

Wow, those waffles almost look too pretty to eat. I hope they tastes as good as they look, although how could they not with all those awesome toppings you added to them. I don’t like adding cold stuff to my hot foods either. I want my oats to stay hot and my pancakes to stay warm. I always add things like cottage cheese to my oats when they’re still in the saucepan so they can warm up a bit before I add them to my serving bowl. I’m glad to know that nuking the yogurt for only 15 seconds didn’t make them all nasty. Thanks for the waffle inspiration. It’s been years since I bought a box of the the frozen stuff, but I think I may just have been convinced :)

I’m in the same boat with you on limited function appliances. And I also consider storage when I contemplate buying something!

Oh my goodness those look amazing! I’ve started eating waffles every Friday morning and just get to work a little later than usual :-)

Kath – long time reader, first time commenter. ;)

We use our waffle maker a TON! Usually just making buttermilk waffles. But I recently tried an awesome dinner recipe for savory chive & cornmeal waffles topped with eggs & salsa (http://joythebaker.com/2012/01/savory-cornmeal-and-chive-waffles-with-salsa-and-eggs/). And this month’s Bon Appetit had a great idea to pour waffle mix on, then top with ham & cheese or a waffle sandwich (http://www.bonappetit.com/recipes/2012/03/ham-and-cheese-waffles)!

This looks delicious…I think the blueberries really win me over. Mmmm blueberries.
You can use a waffle maker to make hashbrowns and paninis…three tasks is better than one, right?

Kashi waffles are so delicious@ I love the blueberry ones. I take frozen blueberries, mix them into some maple syrup, microwave until warm and bubbly—and pour it over the waffles. Then I put a dollop of Greek yogurt on top! Yummy! My favorite breakfast and high in protein too.

Next time I have waffles, I want them to look like that!! OMG! I thought about having some for dessert!!

It’s been SUCH a long time since I had a breakfast like pancakes or waffles – usually oats or cereal win in the morning due to their simplicity, not to mention habit! Every time I see waffles on a blog I vow to branch out…
