~ Wake up to Grands Brand Cinnamon-Roll Waffles ~

IMG_7107If you are a fan of cinnamon-rolls with ooey-gooey cream cheese frosting, it's time for you to meet the easiest, best holiday or special occasion breakfast ever.  Easiest.  Best.  Period.  You will not be calling anyone twice to the table that morning.  That said, you will need a Belgian-style waffle iron to make these, meaning a waffle iron with deep grids.  To make the waffles using a regular waffle iron, substitute a tube of Pillsbury's regular, smaller--sized cinnamon rolls.

IMG_7067One pre-made ingredient + one Belgian waffle iron = amazing.

IMG_7073 IMG_7070 IMG_7075Step 1.  Open the tube of waffles.  Remove the waffles but do not separate them. Remove the small plastic container containing the cream cheese glaze. Add 1/2 teaspoon water to the cream cheese glaze, place it in the microwave for 15-20 seconds, then stir.  Set aside.  Using a serrated bread knife slice the waffles into four even sized discs (ignore the precut perforations).  Set aside.  Preheat waffle iron to medium -- initially a red light will display, then a green light will display when iron is hot and ready.

When the green light indicates the iron is ready again, repeat process with remaining discs.

Serve steaming hot drizzled w/the warm cream cheese glaze:

Mornings in the average family tend to have a lot of things happening at once.  I love my family and I enjoy my guests, but, back in the days when I was trying to get three kids off to meet the school bus and my husband out the door to the office, or, fast forward to when I happen to be organizing breakfast for a few overnight guests, no one appreciates having a few time-saving recipes that taste as good as they look as much as I do.  This recipe is worth its weight in gold.  Try my ~ Grands Apple-Pie-Filling Filled Cinnamon-Roll Cups ~.
