  • Simply unwrap and cook.  It’s the best ‘waffle’ recipe with the fewest ingredients!
  • Serve with some crispy Air Fryer Bacon or some savory Air Fryer Breakfast Sausage. Add a healthy smoothie and have a great start to the day!
  • Need a fast and fun dessert? Make cinnamon roll waffles and top with a scoop of ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup! Even the kids can make their own.

Ingredients & Variations

Ready-Made Cinnamon Rolls come in servings of 5 which will spread perfectly in a mini waffle maker like the Dash. For regular-sized waffle irons, press 3 rolls in the center with the sides touching.

Make fun ‘churro-style’ waffle bites by cutting each cinnamon roll in half and rolling it into a ball. Flatten it and cook as directed. Roll the bites in cinnamon sugar and serve.

Toppings The icing that comes with the cinnamon rolls is good, but if it’s not enough (and it usually isn’t) make a homemade glaze by whisking milk into a few tablespoons of powdered sugar until the glaze is smooth. Add a spoonful or two of cream cheese for an extra rich and creamy icing. Garnish waffles with orange zest or fresh berries.
