Margherita Pizza Dinner Waffles

Margherita Pizza Dinner Waffles

We’re currently busy working on our second book and being on deadline has inspired us to further simplify dinner. It’s funny how creating a book about easy, healthy family meals can take a toll on your own family dishes. So in response to our amped up schedules, we have visited an old friend–breakfast for dinner.

You can’t deny the ease or deliciousness of waffles come Sunday morning but did you know this lazy weekend breakfast makes the perfect fast, weeknight dinner? Since waffle machines kick out discs the size of your head in about four minutes, you can get a whole whack on the table in about 16 minutes. For a weeknight, those are some pretty good stats.

A Margherita Pizza is Scarlett’s favourite pie and these waffles deliver all on its classic flavours–goeey mozzarella, sweet basil and subtle garlic. Obviously, you’ll need a lovely red sauce for dipping instead of syrup.
