This recipes was one of those times where I was able to snag a few bananas from their stash! When I was preparing for #waffleweek2014, I knew I had to make at least one recipe involving apples. I've already make brown butter banana waffles, which are amazing! So this time I wanted to do a little something different. Something not only to highlight bananas, but also to help give parents a quick and kid pleasing option for breakfast on those crazy mornings before heading out to school.
Then it came to me. Banana stuffed biscuit waffles! But not just plain ol' bananas...although that would probably be pretty good too! These are filled with bananas that have been tossed in brown sugar and a tiny pinch of cinnamon! How good does that sound?
The waffles aren't made of traditional waffle batter. Actually there's not even a reason to get out any mixing bowls, whisks or measuring spoons. I'm serious! These waffles are made out of butter, flaky canned biscuits. In a matter of about 30 seconds, the time it takes to pull the can out of the fridge and open it, your half way to making these delicious stuffed waffles.
I used the Pillsbury Grands butter biscuits, and just cut the uncooked biscuit in half then spooned some of the brown sugar bananas in the center. I placed the other half of the biscuit on top of the banana mixture, sealed it and dropped it on the waffle maker. That's it. It about three minutes you've got a delicious, butter biscuit waffle that's filled with caramelized bananas. How perfect is that for a quick breakfast.
Caramelized Banana Stuffed Biscuit Waffles
1 Can Pillsbury Grands butter biscuits
2 Bananas, quartered lengthwise and sliced
4 Tbsp brown sugar
Non-stick cooking spray, for the waffle iron
Preheat waffle iron.
Place bananas, brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and toss to coat. Set aside.
Cut each of the biscuits in half, lengthwise. Spoon a heaping tablespoon of the bananas in the center of half of the biscuits. Top each of the filled biscuits with the other half, press to seal the edges.
Enjoy plain, with a dusting of powdered sugar, syrup, melted peanut butter, drizzled chocolate or banana slices.
