Gingerbread Waffles

I love Christmas time. I love the feeling, the love you feel, the family time, and the food. These Gingerbread Waffles are one of my favorite holiday breakfasts. If you need a breakfast idea for Christmas morning, this is one you need to try.

Today I am sharing with you one of the recipes from our cookbook, 12 Days of Christmas with SixSistersStuff.
If you love gingerbread, why not eat it for breakfast? The flavor of these waffles is exactly how Christmas should taste.

As I have mentioned before, I am not typically a big breakfast eater. But Christmas is definitely the exception. It seems that so many holiday memories are intertwined with food.

When we were growing up, we would spend Christmas morning opening our gifts and playing with them while my parents whipped up a yummy breakfast.

While the gifts were such a fun part of the day, being with family is what was the most important and as we (the sisters) have grown older and now have families of our own, I have realized that is what I need to focus on: making memories with my family.

And Christmas breakfast or brunch is a great place to start.

I liked putting whipped cream and fruit on top of mine, but my kids and husband drowned theirs in syrup.

Both ways are divine.

what do I serve with waffles?

If you are making dessert waffles, we recommend adding vanilla ice cream to these bad boys. However, if they are for breakfast, you may want some side dishes.

If you are looking for side dishes to serve with this recipe, we have a few ideas for you, that you are going to love.

I love making this recipe and serving it with fresh fruit. If you are looking for a fresh fruit salad, try our Greek Yogurt Fruit Salad.

We also love serving this with a fresh drink. When we make this for Christmas breakfast, we love serving it with our Warm Instant Pot Apple Cider.

If you are looking to go really festive, we like to serve our leftover ham with these waffles. Our favorite ham is our Slow Cooker Honey Baked Ham recipe.

We also like making a delicious egg type casserole. One of our favorite casseroles is our, Ham and Cheese Breakfast Casserole. It also tastes great with leftover Christmas ham.

here are a few of our other favorite waffle toppings:

Glaze. I love me some glaze on my gingerbread waffles. Frosting would also work, but we recommend a thin glaze recipe.

I would add 1/4 cup milk, 3 tablespoons of melted butter, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, and 2 cups of powdered sugar. Mix it all together with a whisk, and you’ve got yourself a glaze.

Fruit and Whipped Cream. This is a waffle classic. It is also super easy to add to any waffle dish.

Nutella and Strawberries. Have you ever dipped a strawberry in Nutella? Well prepare to have your life changed. It is delicious, but add it to waffles, and it becomes a dream come true.

Strawberries, Bananas and Powdered Sugar. This is also a waffle classic, because it is simple, inexpensive, and tastes amazing. All you need is some syrup, and breakfast is served.

    Made these Christmas Day and they didn't disappoint! I doubled the batch and it made 6 Belgian waffles. I wish I could post a picture. The kids loved them and we will definitely be making them again. I also used Braer Rabbit full flavor molasses. So good!
