Strawberries & Cream Waffle Sandwiches

With the older kids on spring break this week, we have managed to enjoy some lazy mornings and big breakfasts. (Although the rest of my spring break plans aren’t doing so well.) I think my favorite part of serving everyone a big breakfast is that I can get away with making a smaller, snack type lunch. Oh, and I guess the food. Gotta love breakfast foods!

This morning’s breakfast was a HUGE success and one that I will definitely be repeating a lot. Especially once summertime hits and we can enjoy these lazy mornings all the time.

Strawberries & Cream Waffle Sandwiches

For each sandwich:

  • 2 waffles (This is the waffle recipe I use the most.)
  • 1/3 c. Cool Whip (or similar whipped topping)
  • 4-6 strawberries, trimmed and sliced
  • 1 t. powdered sugar

1. Spread all but about 2 teaspoons of the Cool Whip on the top of one waffle. Top with sliced strawberries. (Reserve a few slices to garnish the top.)

2. Top with the second waffle. Dollop the remaining Cool Whip on the center of the top waffle. Place the leftover strawberry slices in the Cool Whip and sprinkle powdered sugar on top.

I realize this is less a recipe and more a method, but I still had to share. You could easily duplicate the same taste with pancakes or French toast in place of the waffles too. And I bet just about any fruit would work just as well also.

This is one breakfast that might seem a little decadent and indulgent, but trust me, you won’t regret it!

  2. Hi :-} I followed your ‘link up’ over from Gollums Foodie Friday’s.

    Your strawberry concoction looks delicious. It also reminds me of two different things.

    #1 – For years I was a cook at a Christian youth camp. Every week we served pancakes acompanied with strawberries in their own syrup and whip cream Monday mornings for breakfast. One summer the kitchen over seer did not think it was all that necessary or important to follow that tradition. Oh my goodness!!! Those of us actually working in the kitchen had an uprising on our hands. Every single Monday morning that summer (new campers arrive every Sun. afternoon, then leave Sat. after breakfast.) The staff.., the campers.., it wasn’t pretty. To top it all, the over seer had replaced them with pre made french toast sticks. Abosolutley no comparison what-so-ever!!! And, they were limited to three sticks per person. You just can’t mess with strawberry pancakes on Monday mornings at camp!!!!!

    #2 – after our house fire eight years ago next month, we moved in with my bachulor brother while they repaired our home. Our age difference was such that he had started kindergarden the year I started college.
    One of the times that he found out just how differently I did things from mom, had to do with strawberries. About 10:30 one night I was in the kitchen slicing up a couple of quarts of strawberries. He ambled in and questioned me serving them that late – on a school night (I have four sons). I replied that no, I was prepping them for the next mornings breakfast. WHAT?!!! I explained how every spring, the first time we have fresh, locally grown strawberries, we have them with shortcake for breakfast. It was one of our traditions.
    The next morning he just couldn’t bring himself to eat it, but did acknowledgie(?) that it probably was healthier than some cereals. He took his to work to have at morning break time.
    He came home telling me how jealous others had been at his snack, and how many co-workers had thought my tradition of having them for breakfast was one they planned on copying. ;-p

    {please excuse my spelling. The vertigo is making my brain extra fuzzy this morning. Time to take a break.}
