Cascading Kitchen Notes
Turn these waffles into a savory dinner by adding a Sausage Gravy.
- I double this recipe and freeze the cooked waffles in ziplock bags for quick breakfasts. I freeze the cooked squash in one quart containers to work with this recipe.
- *Bake multiple winter squash on the same day. Cut the winter squash into med. size chunks, seeded but not skinned. Lay these pieces out on a baking sheet. Cook until soft then allow to cool. Remove the meat of the squash and puree in the food processor. Freeze squash puree in quart containers.Use this in the waffle recipe or as a side dish. Here are more ideas to enjoy a ready supply of squash in the freezer.
