Gingerbread Waffles With Cinnamon Butter

Every Christmas morning, my family gathers together, and before any gifts are opened, we cook up a huge breakfast, sit together at the kitchen table, and indulge.  As a kid, I hated waiting to open gifts until after breakfast, but as an adult, I really enjoy taking the time to wake up, relax a bit and enjoy some quality time with the family before the wrapping paper starts flying.

This is a tradition I plan to carry on with my own children, as much as they may hate it as kids too.  I think it’s very important to show them that Christmas is about more than just ripping into your gifts as fast as you can.

One of my favorite things to make for breakfast on Christmas morning is waffles.  Waffles are just so fluffy and hearty and scrumptious.  This year, I’ll be mixing it up a bit, and making these Gingerbread Waffles with Cinnamon Butter.

Gingerbread is such a great flavor for the holidays, and it pairs really well with the Cinnamon Butter.

Make these waffles for your family this Christmas, and they’ll be glad they waited to open their gifts.  This breakfast certainly makes it worth the wait!
