Mornings can be a little hectic during the work and school week, so I appreciate a leisurely weekend breakfast more than ever. In fact, I am so enthusiastic about weekend breakfasts that I’ve joined Hungry Jack’s “Bring Back Breakfast This Weekend” campaign and am giving away samples of new pancake and waffle mix flavors plus an awesome Belgian waffle maker!
But first, let’s just compare and contrast. This is what our weekday breakfast typically looks like.
And this is weekend breakfast! Is it like this at your house?
If so, carry on! If not, here are some tips to help you bring back breakfast this weekend.
1. Don’t knock yourself out trying to bake breakfast breads from scratch. Cinnamon rolls are awesome, but who wants to wake up at 4:00 AM on the weekend? This is why pancakes and waffles are considered breakfast food.
2. Serve dessert for breakfast! You obviously wouldn’t do this every day, but it might tempt the late sleepers to wake up a little earlier on weekends. Speaking of which, did you know you can use pancake mix to make Cinnamon Raisin Bar Cookies? I’m going to try these this week and will report back.
3. And here’s another fun item I just invented. Well, sort of. I looked it up after I invented it and apparently lots of people are already doing it. You can put Hungry Jack Cinnamon Spice Pancake Mix in a cake ball pop maker and make breakfast pancake pops. I haven’t tried freezing them, but if they freeze as well as pancakes, you could freeze them, thaw them in the microwave and serve them as pancakes on the go during the week.
But I’m not giving away a cake ball maker. I’m giving away a gorgeous Belgian waffle maker to help make your weekend breakfasts PERFECT. For a chance at winning the giveaway, just leave me a comment describing both your weekday breakfast and your weekend breakfast. I will pick one giveaway winner by Saturday, October 27, so make sure to get your comments in by October 26 at midnight. Also, join me in “liking” Hungry Jack’s Facebook page where you can communicate with some of the team members, see product updates and keep track of any new promotions.
