I have an eight year old and we're always rushed on school mornings, so I make up a batch of waffles ahead of time and freeze them in individual serving sizes. Then you take them out of the freezer and put them in the toaster and they come out awesome! They're crispy and chewy and my son loves them!
We do the same thing except with french toast. Make a bunch extra, put in a baggie, and then pull out however many you want. We toast them and then I cut them in strips for my kids to have french toast sticks. They get a small container of syrup, and it's much less messy that way.
On the weekends, when I do have time to cook a nice breakfast, I make extras to freeze. I do this with everything from eggs, bacon, biscuits, pancakes, french toast, etc. I even make english muffin sandwiches to freeze for later in the week. For pancakes, I stack them in 3's, wrap them, and stick them in the freezer. Then, on a rushed morning, I throw them in the microwave for just one minute. Voila! It is an instant hot breakfast that the kids will love.
I make my kiddos Waffles every morning. I just pour the mix into the waffle maker and let it go, when it is done I scrape it out and serve it to the kids. Other morning I give them buttered toast, they seem to like it.
My mother-in-law (now deceased) from Portland Maine, gave me her original homemade waffle recipe back in 1974; and I served them to all four of my children...and even grandchildren!! They loved them!!
I tripled the recipe and froze them, to have handy on those cold, lazy days of winter. LOL
