Day 24: Gingerbread Waffles

Christmas breakfast. Oh what a joy it is! I’m only guessing. My version of Christmas breakfast is a gulp of water as we rush out the door to get to the in-laws’ before everyone makes a mad dash for the gifts.

You see, my family celebrates Christmas on Christmas Eve. We go over that evening and chat, drink champagne and slowly prep from dinner. Then we have said late dinner and talk some more until we just can’t take the anticipation any longer.

SO, Christmas breakfast is unknown to me. BUT if I were to imagine it, I’m pretty sure it would involve something warm and sweet made with love and a sprinkle of Christmas cheer.

Just in case you don’t want to go the cinnamon roll route for Christmas, these waffles come together quickly and taste WONDERFUL! It’s almost as if Santa made this recipe himself. πŸ˜‰

It’s Christmas EVE and this extravaganza is coming to a sad close. I love Christmas. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, ya know? Make these waffles for your loved ones and be of good cheer. πŸ˜‰
