Have you noticed the cooler weather outside? It has been in the 50s in the mornings this week in North Carolina. And it has me craving pumpkin & apple everything!
My kids LOVE waffles. I don't have time to make them on weekdays, but on weekends it is a special treat. And adults love them too! So I decided to make an Autumn-themed waffle bar: perfect for a girl's brunch, baby shower, or family gathering. Cooking is simple and takes little prep and your company can pick and choose their favorite toppings for brunch.

15 oz Water
6 Tablespoons Melted Butter
Beat eggs and water together. Add flour and whisk well. Stir in melted butter and mix thoroughly. Preheat the mini waffle griddle until blue light goes off. Ladle about 1/4 cup of batter per waffle and cook for 2- 3 minutes per waffle. This recipe makes approx. 12-15 mini waffles.
Maple Cinnamon Apples
2 Tablespoons Butter
1/4 Cup Maple Syrup
1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon
Melt butter and sauté apples over medium heat about 5 minutes stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Add maple syrup and cinnamon, stir. Serve warm.
8oz of Bacon (half of a 16oz Package)
Slice bacon in half before laying pieces in a cold cast iron skillet. Cook bacon on medium/medium high heat, turning temperature down as needed to prevent burning. Flip until both sides are brown and cooked well. Cool then chop or break into small pieces.
1 Pint Whipping Cream
2 Tablespoons Powdered Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
Beat whipping cream in mixer until peaks form and cream doesn't drip off the whisk. Mix in powdered sugar and vanilla.
Creating a Waffle Bar Area
Now that the waffles and toppings are prepped, and the table is laid out you can relax and enjoy your guests! I love waffle bars because they are simple to put together, easy to customize, and are easy on the host. Enjoy!!
