Breakfast for dinner is one of my go to meals. It’s filling, it’s quick and even my teen can make dinner. If we make too much, it can be warmed up for breakfast the next day. This is important because my daughter started high school this year and she has gotten into the habit of heading to school and NOT eating breakfast.

Mom guilt is strong as I sip my cup of coffee and watch her rush off to school. I would prefer the day start with us easing into our respective routines but those morning hours seem to fly by as we start our day. And really? No one in my home is into making a full meal ay 5:30 in the morning but I want her to be fueled with more than some junk she eats when she heads to school. Enter Frozen Waffles and a plan.

To get a handle on the meals at home, I started a weekly meal plan. It’s not full of gourmet meals and recipes (yet) but rather an outline to help guide our shopping and eating. Since the school year started, our return to normal has been anything but. The Bee had a bit more freedom with high school and has been hanging with friends after school and trying out for different extracurricular activities. Work has been keeping me there a bit later. Add in a few workshops and conferences and we are doing a mad scramble where dinner is concerned leaving us feeling like our evenings are way too crazy!

A decision was made and The Bee will now have to help with dinner at least once a week initially, with a second night added in once she is a bit more confident. She panicked a bit; her recipes include lots of instant noodles (not my fave) and bowls of cereal (I’m a fan) but woman cannot live on cereal alone so we have refined the art of breakfast for dinner and breakfast on the go.

To show her just how easy it was to make a filling meal, I had my boyfriend, Tom (aka Effin Guy), who cooks less than me, come over and help prepare a quick meal. We went to Shoprite for ingredients and used Aunt Jemima frozen waffles since they are quick and can be popped right into the toaster for a warm, delicious meal. With a larger serving size, we could experiment with different recipes and see what we liked best.

For our brunch, Effin Guy and I created candies bacon and waffles!

To create the candies bacon we used

  • bacon
  • brown sugar
  • crushed red pepper (to give it a kick)

We laid the strops of bacon in a baking pan. You may want to line your pan to save on clean up

Sprinkled the crushed pepper and then brown sugar,

Baked at 35 for 16 minutes. When the temp was higher we had issues with the food burning.

The result?
A delicious meal ready in 22 minutes!

Make candied bacon in three steps to accompany your Aunt Jemima waffles


The waffles are now in a resealable package which makes waster not an issue. It has been difficult saving food from the dreaded freezer burn due to unreliable containers.

    I was just thinking that I could go for some waffles and bacon. I’m going to take this as a sign! Also, I’m pretty sure my husband will go crazy over the candied bacon, so thank you for that! <3

    1. Rachee says:

      Mine came out a little too …cajun. I think a thicker cut of bacon would be best. Have fun and enjoy!

  2. I heart waffles!!!! We need to do these for dinner more often – so easy and everyone would love it!

  3. I love that you’re getting your daughter in the kitchen to help with dinner! I need to add waffles to my grocery list and hide them in the freezer for when I need something last minute.

  4. Gina Badalaty says:

    Breakfast for dinner is my FAVORITE night, especially since my husband does it all 🙂

  5. Jennifer Lynn-Pullman says:

    My kids and I love breakfast for dinner! My husband does not, so we wait until he is away on a business trip for our breakfast dinner.

  6. Jenna Wood says:

    I candy bacon almost weekly around here, I bet it would go great with Aunt Jemima waffles!

  7. I have to say I am not a fan of the new resealable bag. It doesn’t seal very easily IMO. BUT, it does take up a lot less room in my freezer.

    1. Rachee says:

      That’s a shame! I had no issue and my teen actually remembered to seal it as opposed to just stuff the box back into the freezer. I hope it works better the next time.

  8. Alicia Gonzalez says:

    I’ve never made candied bacon. I feel like I’m missing out. I’ll definitely have to try this!

    1. Rachee says:

      We went to a bacon festival and the cooks gave us the recipe. I am hooked!

Your turn! Tell it to Rah-shay!
