Fancy Waffles and Strawberries

Posted by Denise on January 11, 2011

This looks completely fancy, but is oh-so-easy to make!

This food looks much fancier than what we would normally have for breakfast, but it tastes soooo good that we make it when we have overnight guests and sometimes just because we are hungry for it. This breakfast can be made in less than 10 minutes, and it's easy to throw together. So break out the good plates and get ready for a treat!

The first time we had this was about 15 years ago when we visited Glenn's brothers and sister in California. Glenn's older brother, Rich, made this when we stayed with him. When he first told us what he was fixing, we were too polite to refuse to eat it, but it sounded like a terrible combination of ingredients. We were reluctant to try them, but one bite and we ended up having seconds. We have made these many times since and are grateful that he thought to make this breakfast dish for us. Thanks, Rich!

I show this with pre-made frozen waffles, but you could do the same thing with freshly made waffles if you want to go to the trouble. Don't feel that you need the fresh ones, because this breakfast is FANTASTIC even with the frozen ones! Likewise, it would be very easy to use fresh strawberries, mashed slightly, instead of the frozen strawberries.

 

Waffles with Strawberries and Sour Cream

Each serving is two waffles with the toppings. This recipe will make enough for four people. If you have fewer people than that you can eat more! Actually, you can always save it for another breakfast or allow more waffles per person for bigger appetites.

  Ingredients:

1 Box pre-made waffles with at least 8 waffles inside
1 Container frozen strawberries, thawed, in natural juices or sweetened, your choice
1 Cup sour cream (can use low fat)
8 teaspoons light brown sugar, divided

  Instructions:

  1. Open waffle package and put waffles in toaster. Toast them to your desired level.

  2. As waffles are browning, put sour cream into a plastic sandwich baggie and seal the top tightly. Carefully cut off one corner, about 1/2 inch, to make an opening for squeezing the sour cream onto the waffles. sour_cream_in_baggie

  4. Put toasted waffles on a plate (fancy plate or not -lol). Carefully squeeze out sour cream onto the waffles. (Actually, you only need to carefully squeeze it out if you are trying to impress someone. Usually, we use a spoon and plop it right from the container onto the waffles. They taste the same either way and we are only fancy with guests. But that's just us. ♥)

  5. Add strawberries to waffles, dividing the container amongst the waffles. waffles_adding_strawberries 
  6. Sprinkle the brown sugar over the top of the waffles and toppings. Use as little or as much as your taste requires. The strawberries may already be sweetened, so use some caution so it isn't too sweet.

     

  7. Dig in!
