For my dad, the most exciting part of staying in a hotel was always the waffle iron at the continental breakfast.
So for Christmas last year my mom surprised him with a waffle iron (it was cheaper to buy a waffle iron than stay in a hotel every time we wanted waffles).
And with the acquisition of the waffle iron has come experimentation with the waffle iron.
So what happens when you take a can of cinnamon rolls and put them in a waffle iron? You get: CINNAMON ROLL WAFFLES! We made these on vacation and they were a big hit!
You can either put one pre-cut cinnamon roll dough in the center or evenly space out three to four cinnamon rolls. Just make sure to put the dough close to the center so that it will merge together as one waffle.
Now I can already hear the critics…
Critic: “Wow, a waffle consisting of four cinnamon rolls? That's a lot of calories!”
Me: “This isn’t something I eat everyday! Like I said above, we made these on VACATION. And if you do eat these everyday, I would like to direct you to some healthier breakfast recipes to try on my website like this egg casserole.”
Critic: “This isn’t really a recipe. Your only ingredient was a can of refrigerated cinnamon rolls.”
Me: “Recipes don’t always have to be complicated. Sometimes a recipe is just a unique way of doing something.”
- 1 can refrigerated cinnamon rolls with cream cheese icing
- Heat waffle maker and spray with cooking spray. Remove cinnamon rolls from can; set icing aside.
- For each waffle, place 1, 3, or 4 cinnamon rolls in the center of waffle maker; close.
- Bake for 3 to 4 minutes or until waffle is thoroughly cooked and golden brown.
- Spread icing over waffles and serve.
