Pumpkin Beer Waffles // take a megabite

I don’t know when I stopped eating cereal… I think my mornings have gotten cut short in the breakfast department. The truth is, I’d rather have waffles anyway. And so I figured I should Sunday brunch it waffle-style and freeze a bunch for mornings during the week. Then I can toast them, cut them, dunk them, and eat them as casually as I would cereal, or a granola bar, or a yogurt parfait situation. I’m just trying to make waffles casual, ya know? Let’s make waffles like your every day denim, ok?

Oh! And I figured I should sundae it up waffle-style because the truth is my mom always says waffles need ice cream, and she knows a thing or four. So I ate that sundae down there for breakfast and a cookie for lunch. Just a weekend diet, ya know? (Yesterday I had nachos for dinner and fro-yo for second dinner. Let’s just yolo our way through the weekend, ok? And yolo is over, right? Whoops.)

  1. I think I need to get a waffle iron. I wonder if pumpkin beer would be lost on these or if it would intensify the pumpkin-y goodness?

  2. These waffles are kind of thick, as a warning to anyone who’s using this recipe for the first time. I’d loosen up the batter a bit with a splash of milk, or more beer and pumpkin puree. I used Yuengling and it worked pretty well.
