In the last couple of weeks, we have found out that my husband is gluten intolerant. I have been scrambling to make breakfasts that I can cook ahead of time and freeze. I have to come up with meals that my kids and my husband will both like and they have to be easy. They have to be something I can make ahead of time. I headed into Walmart to buy some ingredients for what I hoped would be a special breakfast meal idea. I decided that a pumpkin waffle with yogurt sauce would be the perfect remedy. I will say my children loved the Yogurt dipping sauce so much that they asked me to put the rest in their lunch box with apple slices. This recipe was so successful in my home that I am sharing it with you.
The waffles were also a huge hit. I was able to make some for the morning and freeze some for breakfast in my future. You know the one that you are running late, and you need something quick. These easy recipes will bring fall to your table and joy to your stomach.
