Breakfast for dinner is a great option during the busy holidays! I'm sharing a decadent yet simple recipe for dulce de leche Belgian-style waffles, plus my favorite way to cook bacon without having to clean any grease!
Eggo Belgian Style Thick and Fluffy Waffles with dulce de leche recipe

If you're like me, the holidays can be a stressful time to cook! There's so much going on that I like to keep it simple by making breakfast for dinner at least once a month! We love Belgian waffles! They are filling and satisfying and to make dinner even easier, I love using Kellogg's® Eggo Thick & Fluffy Original waffles from Walmart! Pop in the toaster and they're done in minutes!

Eggo Thick & Fluffy Waffles from Walmart are the base of this yummy dinner!

Eggo Waffles now have colors & flavors from natural sources, like yummy Madagascar vanilla! They are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside!  How delicious would the Kellogg's® Eggo Thick & Fluffy Cinnamon Brown Sugar Waffles be with this syrup!

This dinner comes together in under 30 minutes! The dulce de leche takes the longest, but I like to make it ahead of time and store it in the fridge. It's easy to heat up in the microwave!

Waffles with a creamy sweet syrup, fresh berries and bacon! Our family loves this combination of sweet and salty, fluffy and crispy! It's like an explosion in your mouth!

Easy Dulce de Leche Recipe

My mom made this syrup when I was growing up and I remember how amazed I was that the milk transformed into a thick, creamy dulce de leche syrup...it's like magic! You'll need a can of sweetened condensed milk for this recipe. Take the label off. Fill a large pot with water, insert the can on its side and bring to a gentle boil. Simmer for 2-3 hours, depending on how thick you want your sauce.

I keep my electric kettle full of hot water to add to the pot of simmering water as it condenses. You want to keep the water level about an inch or two above your can at all times. We don't want any exploding sauce!!!

Use tongs to lift can out of water and leave to cool for about 15 minutes. When you take the lid off, you are rewarded with this magical creamy, decadent dulce de leche syrup! It's perfect on waffles, but just as delicious as a dip for apples, or over ice cream...even in coffee! If you have a sweet tooth, you will love this sauce! It's even good to eat right out of the can!

No Mess Oven Baked Bacon

Someone shared this method to cooking bacon with me years ago, and it's the only way I do it now! This simple method bypasses all the greasy clean-up! Plus, the bacon stays perfectly flat as it cooks evenly with no effort on your part! Start by covering a cookie sheet in heavy duty tin foil. Make sure it's long enough to cover the edges of the cookie sheet. Lay out bacon strips in a single layer trying not to overlap.

Don't preheat your oven! Set your oven between 400°F - 425°F (depending on if your oven cooks hot; the perfect temp in my oven is 425°F) and immediately insert the cookie sheet. The bacon takes about 15 minutes to bake, and is usually cooked by the time the oven beeps! We like ours extra crispy, so it stays in a couple minutes longer. Keep an eye on it though because it will burn quickly at the end!

Drain bacon on some paper towels and pat the foamy tops with paper towels. Once the bacon grease has cooled and hardened, simple use your tongs to fold the tin foil in on itself (keeping all the grease contained) and throw away. No messy pan to clean! No bacon grease to deal with!

Belgian Waffles with Dulce de Leche, fruit and bacon

It's easy to bring all these tasty elements together into a delicious meal that the whole family will enjoy!

I set up the kitchen island like a waffle bar so everyone can help themselves. The house is decorated for Christmas, the lights are twinkling and that merry feeling lasts right through breakfast dinner! Having our family gathered around the table is one of the highlights of the season!

We pour the dulce de leche syrup over the warm toasted waffles, and hit it with a little whipped cream! Along with fresh fruit and bacon, this makes for a deliciously decadent dinner that hits all the sweet and salty notes! 

There are so many flavors and textures in this meal! I love breakfast for dinner!
