Gingerbread Waffles

I don’t make waffles too often, but when I do, it is usually because I want a little comfort and warmth in the form of food! What better way to warm up than with some ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg?

With temps of -3, we needed some warming up in more ways than one! Something about the smell of waffles cooking and bacon frying is so irresistible that even the sleepiest sleepyhead can’t stay in bed once the aroma hits their senses!

This recipes was made with fresh ginger I received from Frieda’s Produce.
