Comfort Food Breakfast
Sweetened with Applesauce
My applesauce Belgian waffles recipe is a great choice, when you want to start your day with a home cooked, comfort food breakfast.
The waffles are sweetened with applesauce, instead of sugar. You can use homemade applesauce or store bought.
And, it can be made dairy free for those of you who need to avoid dairy of just prefer milk alternatives.
This recipe can be ready quick, when you are short on time.
Yet, it is still a satisfying homemade meal.
Your family can eat their waffles as they are rushing out the door or you can linger over the meal and savor each delicious bite.
Either way, this is a feel good meal that is a fantastic way to start your day.
These waffles are delicious plain or you can dress them up however you’d like.
Maple syrup is always good or you can top with fresh fruit or jam.
For a savory option with extra protein, make a waffle sandwich with a fried egg in the middle.
