Waffles; Sausage Pockets; Cake Batter Truffles

3 days, 3 recipes. Hadn't really expected to, but well...freezer stash.

#1 Nutella Waffles - Saturday

My friend Karen made these at New Years. Nutella = yum. Waffles = yum. How can you go wrong? So, Saturday I didn't really have anything planned for dinner so I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone and cook up a batch...dinner and freezer breakfast stash. I even added a little more Nutella than it calls for. There's no such thing as too much Nutella. I even spread some on top.

I got 7 full waffles out of the recipe and 1/4.

   

#2 Sausage Pockets - Sunday

I'm definitely adding these to my permanent recipe notebook. Fluffy, meaty, cheesy. I even overstuffed them a little because I added more cheese. *sly grin* Cheese is another thing you can't have too much of. Unless you're lactose intolerant and have no enzyme pills. I have more cheese in my fridge than anything else right now. Seriously.

I hadn't planned on making these this soon since the sausage was frozen, but I picked up the crescent rolls that morning on the grocery and one of the canisters opened on the way home. These are very yummy and freeze great. I let one defrost in the fridge overnight and only had to heat it for about a minute in the microwave this morning....like it just came out of the oven, only not as burn your taste buds off hot.

 

#3 No Bake Cake Batter Truffles - Monday

Best thing, once it's mixed, you can sit and watch Jeopardy! while you roll them.

I ended up using about 5 Tbsp of milk to get it to dough consistency. If I do these again (probably likely at some point), the only change I'd make is lessen the flour and increase the cake mix for more cake flavor.

Obviously, I didn't coat them in the white chocolate, I didn't feel like messing with that last night, so I just rolled them in the sprinkles. And as long as you pop the whole thing in your mouth, the sprinkles don't fall off. ;-)
