Take breakfast up a notch with these delicious pumpkin waffles made with your favorite pumpkin beer!
Oh delicious pumpkin beer. It's one of my favorite things about the fall and winter seasons.
Really I am a lover of all beer, with IPA's being my absolute. But pumpkin beer is a nice change of pace during the short months that it is around.
I've always loved cooking with beer, but currently lack the skills or knowledge of different ways to incorporate it more into my cooking than just adding it to some soup or slow cooking some meat with it.
However, I'm slowly learning more and more tricks of the trade thanks to the beautiful Beeroness, Jackie Dodd. This woman is a genius and someone I look up to in the blogging, cooking, and beer world. She is amazing and all of her recipes have beer in them! Seriously, best thing ever!
So when I saw a picture of her beer waffles on pinterest, I knew I had to give them a try. Beer for breakfast? Why not?
I originally made these on a Monday morning. Clearly trying to set the tone to have a good week. Though I can't remember if it actually turned out to be a good week or not? Though I'm sure that it did because it involved these waffles and beer on a Monday morning. A combination you cannot go wrong with.
