When we got home from our vacation, we were all missing Disney World. So I started thinking about what I could do to try to capture some of that Disney magic here at home, and I came up with the idea of Mickey waffles, a fan favorite at Disney that we didn’t actually get to try while we were there!
There were a couple of options when it came to Mickey Mouse waffle makers. Many of them make very similar-looking waffles, but there were differences when it came to price, waffle size, and the number of them you can make at a time. In the end I went with cheap (of course), as well as larger waffles, with the only downside being that I can only make one at a time. They cook pretty fast, though (2-3 minutes each), so in the end, that’s not really a big deal.
Aren’t they the cutest?!?
So far, I’ve only made classic buttermilk waffles, but I’ve served them a few different ways, including with fried egg ears, and a decadent chocolate syrup and whipped cream variety:
We’ve really enjoyed making waffles at home for the last few years (I guess you could call it a pandemic hobby), and it’s even more fun to have a way to hold onto a little piece of our vacation at home!
