A waffle on a stick is a fun breakfast for kids… or for anyone who loves the on-a-stick theme of the Minnesota State Fair. I was happily surprised how well this idea worked. Honestly, it was kind of a shot in the dark and it worked perfect the first time. This is how we did it.
How to Make A Waffle On A Stick
First, fry up some breakfast sausage. It doesn’t matter what kind. For bonus points, use bacon. Because …mmm bacon. We just used frozen sausage from the store today. Normally we would have sausage made from our half cow we buy every several months.
Next, make some waffle batter. If you have a favorite waffle, go ahead and use that recipe. If you need a recipe, try this one. It is an oldie but a goodie.
4 Kids and a Chicken’s super simple waffle recipe:
- 4 cups flour
- pinch of salt
- 8 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 4 eggs
- 3 1/2 cups milk
- 1 1/2 sticks melted butter
Making the Waffle on a Stick:
Take a wooden skewer and break it in half. Skewer your breakfast sausage and dip it in the waffle batter. Then place it on a hot waffle iron as shown. The key is to get it to sit between the grooves of the waffle iron so that it doesn’t obstruct the waffle maker from closing.
Finish combining the ingredients by pouring batter over the sausage to fill out the rest of the waffle.
Close the waffle iron and let it cook just like you would with any other waffle. You could experiment with chocolate chips, blueberries or other fruit in the batter as well. That would add fun color and a little nutrition to the meal.
You can easily remove the waffle just by grabbing the stick!
Last, let the kids devour it … and then ask you for it every day until you finally give up and make it again. See?! Easy Peazy!
