Breakfast for Dinner: A Winner

I know that our household was really blessed by the fact that we did not have fussy eaters. I take no credit in this… it just happened. This was good for me, as I love to cook, and the family loved trying new recipes. The best rave reviews came when we had breakfast for dinner. We did this once a week, preferring a hot meal meant Cap’n Crunch did not make the menu.

Waffles are wonderful. There are countless varieties and on top of that… countless toppings! Here is a favorite this is crisp crusted, feather light and are exceptionally good.
