Waffle Bar

A few weeks ago some friends invited us and a few other families over for “pew” breakfast….breaky after church….waffles and bacon! It was such a treat. We had friends over just before Christmas for brunch. I was inspired by the “pew” breakfast as well as a photo from Veronica Yem on Pinterest of a waffle far.   Here’s my take on it…

I had fun with the toppings…

  • salted buttermilk syrup
  • chocolate lavender sauce
  • Cookinotti – caramelized crushed cookie spread
  • peanut butter – my personal fave

And of course you have to include the classics…

Oh, and don’t forget to serve the waffles with thick cut bacon!!

At the “pew” breakfast we had a bacon-off, testing out two different kinds of thick cut bacon and my family voted for Lepp Farm Market….so that’s what I’m serving from now on!  It doesn’t matter how much bacon you make, there’s never any left over!

I covered our island with craft paper and doodled the steps and labelled the toppings.   Setting up a waffle bar is a simple and fun way to entertain….quite perfect for a New Year’s Day brunch!

    Looks like you just updated a tradition your Grandmother started except here waffle supper was Friday night. Good work and great ideas for presentation.

      Thanks Marilyn! Yes Grandma put on amazing waffle bakes! Yeast waffles cooked on cast iron over a gas stove! Such a great tradition!

  • This is the BEST idea EVER. Now I just need a long pew table to do it on! Amazing!

      Thanks Garcy! It was a really fun and relaxed way to entertain! I have my eye on a long table with benches from Restoration Hardware. It would be perf!
