Biscuit Waffles

I love having taste-testers in my kitchen!  Sure, I have Mike, but since he likes pretty much anything I make, his response when I ask him to try something is "yeah, that's good."  Sometimes it is nice to have someone who can offer more advice, like trying another spice or cooking something a different way. 
 
The other day, Mike and his friend were working on replacing the brakes on my car.  Since I knew it would take them a good portion of the afternoon, I decided to spend some quality time in the kitchen.  Life has been so hectic lately that I haven't been able to bake and create as much as I typically like to.

I've seen many people posting about making cinnamon rolls in their waffle maker.  It's a great idea, and the cinnamon rolls cook in about a minute, plus you don't have to heat up your oven!  Since I had some time in the kitchen, I thought why not try making waffles out of biscuits?  I had scored a great deal on Pillsbury Grands biscuits the day before so I had plenty to work with. 
 
I was able to make 8 Biscuit Waffles in less than 10 minutes!  How's that for a speedy breakfast?  I used Pillsbury Grands Homestyle Southern Style Biscuits and I loved how they worked.  I brought out a plate for each of my taste testers (Mike and his friend) and asked them to try the waffles.  Their response was an enthusiastic, "these are good!"  Then I told them that the waffles were made out of biscuits.  Their next response made me laugh--they turned into food critics.  "Oh yeah, I can see that.  They're a little more dense.  But that means they hold up better for the syrup.  Yeah, these are good!" 
 
Since I made these waffles in the afternoon, I had quite a few leftover (after we all taste-tested).  I stored them in a Ziploc bag in the fridge.  The next morning I popped a couple in the toaster to warm them up, and they tasted fresh from the iron!  I'll definitely be making these again, especially when I'm short on time!

Biscuit Waffles

Makes 8

Ingredients:
1 can Pillsbury Grands Homestyle Southern Style Biscuits

1.  Heat your waffle iron to medium-high heat. 

2.  Place 1 biscuit in the center of your waffle iron and cook according to the directions on your iron.  (I use a Belgain waffle maker and I found it easiest to make just one waffle at a time, if you have a different style waffle iron you may be able to cook 2 waffles at once.  Mine has a light that indicates when the waffles are done.)

3.  Remove waffle from the iron and set aside.  Repeat with remaining biscuits.

Top waffles with desired toppings: syrup, fresh fruit, peanut butter, jam etc.
