I don’t know about you, but I show love through food. I love feeding people, entertaining, and making sure that everyone is having a good time. I do not like having to do anything that takes too long. I have the tendency to get bored or distracted when I am cooking. I keep joking that I should start a series which I will call “Crafting for people who want to craft, but don’t want to actually craft anything” because that’s how I feel most of the time!
So I came up with this super easy waffle recipe. I combined my love for strawberries, champagne, and waffles for all the Galentine’s day brunches that will be happening! Whip it up for your Galentine’s day festivities! You won’t regret it.
Here is what you’ll need:
- 2 cups chopped strawberries
- 1 package Pillsbury flaky biscuits
- 1/2 heavy whipping cream
- A waffle maker ( I used a mini)
- Electric mixer (stand or hand held)
- A small saucepan
Here is the how:
Note: I did most of this simultaneously.Partially because I wanted to get back to watching tv, but mostly because it was so easy.
- First thing I did was I put my strawberries into a glass container and added champagne until they were just about covered. (About 1 cup.) I let it sit in the fridge overnight.
For the waffles:
- When you’re ready to begin cooking take 1 cup of the soaked strawberries and chop up into small pieces. Set aside.
- Open up your Pillsbury dough. This could be considered cheating but who cares! It’s so easy! Anyway… take out each biscuit and cut it into quarters.
- Take each quarter and make it into a round (like a tiny little pizza crust)
- Take two of the rounds and sandwich some strawberries between them.
- Cook in the waffle maker for about 3 minutes.
- Repeat until all your biscuit dough is used up! Tada!
For the sauce:
- While your waffles are going put the rest of the strawberries and champagne you put in your fridge the night before into the sauce pan.
- You should have roughly 1 cup of strawberries and about 1 cup of champagne. Put this into a saucepan along with three tablespoons of sugar and 3/4 of an ounce of grenadine.
- Mix and bring to a boil over medium heat.
- Reduce heat and simmer.
- Mash up the strawberries and then bring back to a boil
- Make sure you stir this every chance you get until it thickens
- After about ten minutes remove from heat
- Consistency should be thick but still fluid!
For the whipped cream:
- Using your mixer and a chilled bowl whip 1/2 a cup of heaving whipping cream and 1 teaspoon of sugar, on medium, for about three minutes or until soft peaks form. Reduce speed until you get some stiff peaks while being careful not to over whip!
- Sandwich the whipped cream between two mini waffles and drizzle with sauce!
- Add sprinkles for festivity.
- Gather up your besties and enjoy!
