Waffles

We start our mornings early and when our grandson is here, he leaves for school by 7am.
He doesn't always want to eat breakfast but when he does, he can down a hearty serving of these waffles.
Sometimes I make them ahead and allow to cool completely.
Then seal in freezer zip-close bags.
When needed, just pop them into the toaster for a few minutes.
{for a really yummy treat, spread some ice cream between warm/toasted waffles.  A sweet, childhood summer-night-on-the-boardwalk memory for me!}
They are really easy to make and cost just pennies.
They come out of the waffle maker easily and all of the grandchildren love them.
