If you’re looking to diversify your breakfast options, consider casserolling your waffles. In this dish, convenient freezer-aisle waffles are submerged in a rich combination of eggs, milk, butter, maple syrup, vanilla, and cinnamon, and slow cooked until tender. This casserole emerges custardy and moist, but is then broiled for a crunchy finish. If you’d prefer a dryer casserole, reduce the amount of milk in the recipe to half a cup or toast the waffles before slow cooking. Finish off your waffle casserole with a little extra maple syrup for a sweet start to your day.

- ¼ cup maple syrup, plus extra for serving
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- ½ tsp ground cinnamon
- ¾ cup milk, any percentage

1) In a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, milk, ¼ tsp salt, and eggs until smooth.
2) Spray a Suvie pan with cooking spray and arrange waffle pieces in the prepared pan. Pour milk mixture over the waffles, ensuring the waffles are soaked in the mixture. Fill reservoir, input settings, and cook now or schedule.
