Bomberman Waffles

Sunday mornings are our video game mornings. There is nothing better than regressing into childhood, hanging on the couch, wearing pajamas, and playing a game on our of our consoles. We recently splurged as as gift to each other (we figured it covered Valentines Day for the next few years) and got a Switch. It’s actually a really fun console. For our first Saturday with the Switch, we decided to play Bomberman and eat Bomberman Waffles!

The result was not only delicious, but perfectly matched to our game. The recipe made a lot of waffles, and they reheat really well in the toaster during the week. We ate breakfast for 3 days between the two of us on this recipe.
