National Waffle Week

Updated on September 8, 2016

Celebrate Waffles

Celebrate Waffles!

For a very fast family breakfast why not try waffles. Kids just love the crispy waffle squares and they love to fill the holes with sweet syrup and butter. This is a great meal to serve with a tall cold glass of milk or a nice hot cup of coffee.

What are the waffle Holidays in our calendar?

"First week in September is National Waffle week."

"September is All American Breakfast Month!"

Bring on the eggs and bacon - it's an All- American breakfast! Almond Coconut Granola; Cornmeal and Currants Griddlecakes w Apple-Cinnamon Syrup; Banana-Stuffed French Toast; Broiled Grapefruit w/ Vanilla-Ginger Syrup.

March 25th is International Waffle Day.

It also, along with Easter and other occasions, marks an end of winter and the commencement of warmer weather. As such, International Waffle Day began in Sweden, although the word "waffle" is from the Dutch, meaning "wafer."

August 24 is National Waffle Day.

That one marks the first U.S. patent for a waffle iron, in 1869.

Fun Facts about Breakfast & Waffles

The ice cream cone was invented at the St. Louis World's Fair in 1904 when an ice cream vendor ran out of cups and asked a waffle vendor to help by rolling up waffles to hold ice cream. Visit Legends of America for more fun facts.

The first Waffle House restaurant opened on Labor Day in 1955 in Avondale Estates, GA.

Each year Waffle House customers eat more than 334,000 pounds of pecans in their waffles. That is more than 21 million pecans. Visit for more fun facts.

September is National Month of?

Take a look at all these food holidays for the month of September that are just perfect choices to serve for breakfast.

National Breakfast Month

National Honey month - September is national Honey month; we celebrate the Honey Bees and all the foods that are supplied by these little insects. Read about the life cycle of the honey bees then plant bee-friendly plants such as lavender, glory buses, jasmine, rosemary and sunflowers. For out of season weather learn about bee anatomy, and bee games such as a maze, word search and Buzzy Tic-Tac-Toe.

National Biscuit month - Biscuits and gravy anyone? Now that is a breakfast fit for, well, not only champions (not Wheaties!) but everyone. Biscuits with eggs and gravy will jump start a child's school day and keep him or her better focused in the classroom until lunchtime.

National mushroom month - It's National Mushroom Month here in the US. More mushrooms than ever are available in your farmers' markets and grocery stores. And more research is showing these friendly fungi are not only good, but good for us.

What has more potassium than a banana? A Portobello.

National Potato month


Potatoes Potatoes are my favorite thing

Author: Pamela Svoboda/

Potatoe's Potatoe's are my favorite things.

Baked, fried or mashed up with cream.

Potatoe's Potatoe's are simply divine-

It's smooth in the mouth & it ads to the thighs.

Potatoe's Potatoe's are white, beige or cream-

The colors don't matter as long as not green.

Potatoe's Potatoe's, add butter to taste-

A little bit of salt and elastic in the waist.

Potato's Potato's, I eat them each day-

Baked, fried or any oh way.

It's National Week Of?

Now if that's not enough to get your taste buds going then take a look at these breakfast related "weekly holidays" for the month of September.

First week in September is - National Waffle Week

First week in September is also Biscuits & Gravy week.

It's National Day Of?

(12 ounce) can corned beef, cut into chunks

1 medium onion, chopped

1 cup beef broth

September 27: Is also National Chocolate Milk Day.

Is it true that chocolate milk only comes from brown cows? No. Is it true that a little ice cold milk mixed with sugar and cocoa powder really satisfies? Yes!

Hint: To commemorate National Chocolate Milk Day, pour it on your chocolate breakfast cereal instead of regular milk for a choc-tacular

September 29: National Coffee Day.

Now this is actually one of those food/drink holidays that could actually become a national holiday, considering how many people drink coffee and are pretty much obsessed by it and can't function without it..

National Coffee Day can be celebrated in many different ways. You could just go to Starbucks or Peets or Dunkin Donuts, but if you want to make your own coffee drinks, check out the Cookin With Coffee Directory. How about a Coffee Float or Mexican Coffee or this page that has recipes for Coffee Brownies, Coffee Smoothies, and coffee that's perfect for a crisp fall day, which has ingredients that include whole cloves, cinnamon, and cardamom.

10 Quick, Healthy Breakfast Options

1. Shop at Night, Not in the Morning

A rush-hour stop at the grocery store is roughly equivalent to sitting in a line of smog-coughing SUVs in the queue at the drive-through, so grocery shop once a week and stock up.

2. Stock Up on Fruit

Nothing is more portable and easy to eat on the go than an apple or pear. No packaging is more green than a banana's. Full of antioxidants, vitamins (and even those addictive breakfast sugars), fruit is an easy option. Check The Daily Green's guide to the dirty dozen foods you should try to buy organic (and the "clean 15" foods unlikely to carry a pesticide residue).

3. Mix Up a Fruit Salad, a Yogurt Parfait or a Smoothie

Slice and dice your fruit the night before, pack in a reusable container and sample an assortment of fresh fruits in the car or at the office. Or, try mixing your favorite fruits or berries with organic yogurt (it's a superfood!) and granola for a simple parfait you can enjoy at your desk. A few minutes of preparation at night lets you avoid all the hassle in the morning. Making smoothies, too, can be surprisingly quick if you've prepared the fruit the night before.

4. Bake Your Own Breakfast Bars

Try our recipe for delicious Fruit and Oat Granola Bars, or try one of these other healthy granola bar recipes. Spend less than an hour in the kitchen, and you'll have breakfast (or part of a breakfast) for a week or more.

5. Try The Incredible, Edible (and Portable) Egg

Hard-boiled eggs are easy to make, easy to carry and easy to eat. Set aside a few minutes twice a week to boil eggs, and you'll have a high-protein breakfast waiting for you each morning. Find a neighbor who raises chickens and buy local, organic eggs if possible — it's not only good for the environment and local economy, but will turn a stressful trip to the supermarket into a relaxing visit to the farm.

6. Brew Your Own Coffee

Get a reusable travel mug and make coffee at home. It will help you resist the temptation to eat a sweet, sticky something at the coffee counter -- and save you a bundle over the course of a year. Can't manage the hassle of measuring coffee in the morning? At least have your coffee shop refill your mug to save on disposable cup waste.

7. Re-imagine the Breakfast Sandwich

Why not take the cue from lunch and "brown bag" a sandwich? (Better yet, green bag it.) Natural peanut butter and honey on whole wheat bread is about as simple a meal as there is to prepare, and it's loaded with vitamins, minerals, protein and all the health benefits of honey. (Want to get a little more fancy? Try this peanut butter banana bread recipe and enjoy a slice each morning for a week.)

8. Heat Cereal at Your Desk

Take advantage of that hot water spigot on the company water cooler, and treat yourself to some hot oatmeal in the office. Buying a tub of oats is among the cheapest ways to eat breakfast, most any cubicle can find space to store one, and the meal can be spiced up with dried fruit. Or, if your office has a refrigerator, there's no reason you can't bring a bowl and a box of cereal and eat breakfast while skimming through the morning e-mail.

9. Get Creative with Your Carpool

If you share a car to get to work (it's a great recession-busting money-saver!), or sit a cubicle wall away from your best office buddy, why not designate one person each week to be responsible for breakfast for the group? Set some ground rules about health parameters, and then let the creative spirit lead you to new discoveries.

10. If You Must Eat Fast, Eat Smart

If the day gets away from you before it's begun, think twice before you eat. Stop at the grocery store for some oatmeal from the breakfast bar before you pull into the drive-through lane. Consider a whole wheat bagel. And choose options with the least amount of packaging, so at least the problem of empty calories won't be compounded by overstuffed landfills.
