Snow Day Cinnamon Roll Waffles

Snow Day Cinnamon Roll Waffles

Yesterday was another snow day, our fourth of the year. Actually I don’t think any of them were because of snow. They are all due to the frigid arctic cold weather we’ve been having. You moms know what this means:  entertaining the kids ALL DAY LONG because they’re bored. This starts at breakfast, so today I decided to spice things up a bit and make something new – Cinnamon Roll Waffles!

I was inspired by something I read online a while back and this always stuck in my head. It couldn’t be this easy, could it? Just take a roll of cinnamon roll dough from a tube and pop it in your waffle iron?

Cinnamon Roll Waffles - RollFirst I have to get the roll open. These things are sealed better than the kids’ cereal bags and those are impossible to open without scissors!

Cinnamon Roll Waffles - On GriddleI left the heat setting on what we normally use for our Belgian waffles and it sure did the trick!

Cinnamon Roll Waffles - PlatedYes, they do taste as good as they look. The only difference we noticed is they felt a bit heavier since they don’t have time to rise as they do in the oven. But the trade-off is that from start to finish it only takes a couple minutes to complete rather than waiting for the oven to preheat and then cook for 10-15 minutes! I now have a new recipe in my breakfast arsenal!

    That is an awesome idea and another reason why I need a waffle maker. I’m sure the crunchy edges with the icing is the best part.

    I would have never thought to use these in a waffle maker – that is brilliant. I will have to pick some up at the store today.

  22. Debbie Denny says:

    Oh cool . Love it and I will be getting me some rolls soon.

  23. Grands are what we use here for the quick and easy method of getting it from the fridge to the oven in no time flat. This is what we do when time doesn’t seem to be on our side when we can not make it from scratch.
    The taste is amazing too. We usually use the chocolate chip cookies and cinnamon rolls .

  24. Lynne B says:

    I like that you pointed out that the cinnamon rolls didn’t have a chance to rise because of the waffle iron. I think I would have gone in and not even thought about it. Then been disappointed because they didn’t rise. lol
