Gingerbread waffles are one of my favorite things to make for breakfast on Christmas morning. They are so light and fluffy, and bursting with that delicious gingerbread flavor. They are the perfect start to a cold winter day. This post contains affiliate links, and I will receive compensation if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.
Every Christmas morning, my family gathers together, and before any gifts are opened, we cook up a huge breakfast, sit together at the kitchen table, and indulge. As a kid, I hated waiting to open gifts until after breakfast, but as an adult, I really enjoy taking the time to wake up, relax a bit and enjoy some quality time with the family before the wrapping paper starts flying.
This is a tradition I plan to carry on with my own children, as much as they may hate it as kids too. I think it’s very important to show them that Christmas is about more than just ripping into your gifts as fast as you can.
