Overnight Belgian Waffles + a Waffle Skillet Giveaway!

Post image for Overnight Belgian Waffles + a Waffle Skillet Giveaway!

Not a week after receiving a sample tub of Land O Lakes cinnamon sugar butter, I went to the refrigerator to see if there was enough left for the caramelized cinnamon apples I wanted to make with it.

Nope. Not even close.

My husband and our two kids, breakfast by breakfast, had made their way through the whole tub that fast. They are no strangers to cinnamon sugar butter – it makes its way into their breakfast rotation quite often. They are big fans. Mike has his own little shaker of cinnamon sugar amidst the avalanche of bottles in my spice drawer, which he’s been mixing and refilling for some time. It’s been the height of convenience for him to have it already mixed into a spreadable butter. Or so I’m assuming, based on the evidence (or lack thereof).

While the family has been spreading cinnamon sugar butter on their morning toast, I opted to try cooking with it. Read on for today’s Overnight Belgian Waffles with Caramelized Cinnamon Apples recipe and a chance to win a Waffle Skillet prize pack from Land O Lakes.

The simplest and tastiest application I could think of for the cinnamon sugar butter was to caramelize some apples in it and pour them over some super-airy Belgian yeast waffles. The apples couldn’t have been any easier to toss together and the cinnamon caramel was just heavenly.  These Belgian waffles, aside from their amazingly fluffy texture inside and crunchy exterior, are also a breeze to bake in the morning as most of the preparation (and it’s just a few steps) happens the night before. With a sprinkle of toasted pecans on top – well, it was like dessert for breakfast.

Whoa – that is an awesome waffle skillet!

Waffles are actually my favorite breakfast food (with a side of crisp bacon) but it’s not really that great for you, so we usually end up with soft-boiled eggs or some sort of egg scramble.

What an adorable pan! Love it. My all time favorite breakfast food is my mom’s cornmeal pancakes topped with yogurt and fresh fruit.

My favorite breakfast food is my Sour Cream Coffeecake. So rich, moist and tender, I could eat most of it in one sitting if I’m not careful, LOL!

when I worked at the diner I would make myself chocolate chip Belgian waffles almost every morning.

now that I’m a SAHM I’m lucky to get a bowl of cold cereal;. although sometimes I do spoil myself with egg and cheese on an English muffin.

Well that is the cutest waffle pan, ever! Such a “sweet” giveaway–my favorite would probably be shrimp and grits. Not traditionally breakfast food, but we enjoy it on the weekends.

Cinnamon, apples, waffles, and caramel sounds heavenly. All-time favorite breakfast food: pancakes made by my hubby (using a super-easy Cooks Illustrated recipe) and covered with Canadian maple syrup, shared with him and our daughter. It’s our Sunday tradition.

My favorite breakfast food is hash browns, sausage, eggs and waffles. I don’t get that very often though, which is probably why its a favorite…I’ve never gotten a chance to tire of it.
