March 25 is National Waffle Day. Let's celebrate by making a protein-packed breakfast!
My family loves strawberry waffles. Whenever we shop at Kroger, we always grab a couple of boxes of Eggo. Within a few days, both boxes are gone. When I told my son about the aforementioned holiday, he suggested we make strawberry waffles. A few days later, we headed out to the store to grab a few ingredients.
My husband had the idea to grab Kodiak mix. It's a little pricey, but the shelves didn't give us much choice in the matter. Taking a look at the nutritional facts, I wasn't upset about it. Fourteen grams of protein per serving and a mix made with whole grains made me happy. I knew this would be a brunch that not only would fill us up but give us the energy to get through all the tasks of the day.
You don't have to use Kodiak mix for this recipe if you don't want to. Simply use your favorite waffle mix. You will need a waffle maker and plenty of strawberries though.
I made bacon to complement the waffles, and it was a brunch everyone enjoyed. I don't think we'll be buying Eggo waffles anymore. These homemade ones were way better!
- 2 cups Kodiak Power Cakes Flapjack & Waffle Mix
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 2 jumbo eggs
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 32 ounces strawberries
- Nonstick cooking spray
- Rinse and chop your strawberries. I used a large container of strawberries, chopping roughly half the container. I cut the tops, set the strawberries with the point facing me, and created four to five slices. Then I cut each slice into four pieces. Be sure to slice several strawberries for toppings. Place the chopped strawberries in a bowl and set aside.
- Whip up your waffle mix according to the instructions. If you are using the recommended Kodiak mix, you'll put 1 cup of mix, 3/4 cup of milk, 1 jumbo egg, and 1 tablespoon in a large mixing bowl. Stir until all ingredients are well mixed. This will make 2 waffles.
- Slowly stir in half of your chopped strawberries.
- Plug in your waffle maker and let it heat up.
- Spray nonstick cooking spray onto the griddles. Pour 1 cup of waffle batter in the center of your waffle maker. Close the lid and let it cook for 3-6 minutes, or according to your waffle maker instructions. Once the waffle is done, remove and set on a plate. Repeat this step.
- Combine another cup of Kodiak mix with 3/4 cup milk, 1 jumbo egg, and 1 tablespoon of oil. Once ingredients are mixed well, stir in remaining chopped strawberries. Repeat step 5 to make two more waffles.
- Repeat the steps above as necessary to make as many waffles as you'd like.
- Serve waffles with butter and maple syrup. Top with sliced strawberries. Add a few pieces of bacon on the side for a delicious breakfast.
