It's a Week of Waffles at Feels Like Home! Being that I'm a Chief Waffle Officer, I'll be posting waffle recipes featuring Eggo Waffles all week - from April 1 to April 7. I'll share some breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, and dessert recipes, so make sure you come back each day for my most recent creation! (In the interest of disclosure - Eggo Waffles are not gluten-free. In most cases, my family enjoyed my waffle treat while I ate a gluten-free version of the recipe.)
I had to give these desserts a fancy name because they're otherwise almost too easy to call a recipe. A traditional napoleon is made from layers of puff pastry, whipped cream, and a fondant topping. My napoleons are made from waffles, strawberries, and whipped cream. I didn't add a top layer and fondant because I thought it would make the finished dessert too rich and too huge to be practical. As you'll see below, I used all pre-made foods and put these together in less than five minutes.Ã‚ Could you make the ingredients from scratch? Absolutely. It will just take a lot more time. I'm calling this a dessert (and I would serve them after a meal), but I fed them to my children for brunch yesterday. I thought it was an acceptable meal - fruit and waffles. I've given them fruit and waffles for breakfast at least a hundred times before. They were delighted to gobble down fruit and waffles topped with a generous amount of whipped cream! Yahoo! They both ate every bite. And I may have looked the other way when they picked up and licked their plates, because it was the day after Easter and they hadn't had enough sugar for the week. Ha.
