The other week I went to the store and picked up ingredients for all things fall baking. I grabbed a couple cans of pumpkin and then started brainstorming what recipes to create. First I made Pumpkin Snickerdoodles which were a big hit. I decided the next thing I wanted to do was bring some fall flavors to breakfast. That is how these Pumpkin Pie Waffles with a Cream Cheese Glaze were born. I knew I wanted something more than just pumpkin waffles so my husband had the brilliant idea of adding a cream cheese glaze and can I just say well done dear!
Breakfast is a must have in our house. It’s my favorite meal of the day and we often have it for dinner too. I love eggs and grits but I also love having something sweet to go alongside. I think a balanced breakfast has your protein and your sweet treat. Whenever we go out I almost always get whatever the classic eggs and bacon meal is along with a side of french toast, waffles or pancakes (note: I said or, I don’t get all three).
