Breakfast in bed. So simple. So amazing.

Breakfast in Bed

They’ve always said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Although some are saying that this might not necessarily be the case anymore, breakfast is still awesome. And you know what makes breakfast even more awesome? That’s right. Breakfast in bed! It’s a great way to show the person you love how much you care. And if your schedules don’t allow for you to serve breakfast in bed in the morning, you could always make this breakfast in bed for a late-evening snack. Right?

The thought of preparing breakfast in bed can be a little intimidating. But it really doesn’t have be. What I’m about to share is pretty simple to make but it’s oh-so-tasty. I’d say that it’s so simple it’s manproof. But when I’d be worried that you’d misunderstand what I was saying. And then I’d have to point you to this post and wait until you read it so you’d understand that it was a tongue-in-cheek reference to a stereotype that I’d like to see go away.

Believe me. It’s easy.

The menu:

Cinnamon Roll Waffles and Syrup
Yogurt Parfait
Orange Juice (or you could upgrade to a mimosa)

What you’ll need:
Breakfast in bed ingredients

1 Can Cinnamon Rolls
1 Cup Vanilla Yogurt
3 Strawberries

Waffle Maker
Knife & Cutting Board
Drinking Glass
Fork & Spoon

What you’ll do:

Begin by making the yogurt parfait.

1. Dice the strawberries into bite-sized pieces.
2. Spoon a thin layer of yogurt onto the bottom of the bowl.
3. Cover the yogurt with a thin layer of strawberries.
4. Continue alternating yogurt and strawberry layers, ending with strawberries as the topping.
5. Chill in refrigerator until ready to serve.


Now, grab the cinnamon rolls and get to work on your waffles! That’s right. I said cinnamon rolls. In your waffle maker. You’re welcome to try one of these recipes instead. I’m sure it’ll taste fabulous. But I doubt it’ll be as easy as this super-simple recipe.

These cinnamon roll waffles are going to blow your mind (much like this kid’s description of his first kiss). Here’s how you make them:

1. Place a cinnamon roll in a preheated waffle maker.

2. Close the waffle maker.
3. Cook in waffle maker for about 75 seconds.
4. Open waffle maker and remove the cinnamon roll waffle.

That’s it! I promise. It’s that easy. Don’t be too worried if the waffles have a few dark areas. They might look burnt. They aren’t. It’s just the cinnamon and sugar goodness creating an awesome texture to these simple waffles.

Now your waffle has some deep pockets to hold pools of the icing that comes with your cinnamon rolls. It’s awesome.

We’re also pretty big fans of Hoosier Sugar Daddy syrup. And let me tell you, if you ever have the chance to have these cinnamon roll waffles with either their Pumpkin Spice or Persimmon syrups, I highly recommend it. It could, in fact, be life-changing.

Put everything on a tray and get ready to serve. If you happen to keep a stash of cards (like I do), it would be a nice touch to bring the whole meal together.

Like I said. It’s so simple. And so amazing. Go ahead. Give it a try! I’m sure you’ll agree.
