When you want to create a hearty meal, consider serving breakfast for dinner—a popular idea in my home. 


These waffle sandwiches are a great back-to-school mealtime solution, made with fresh organic dairy products and pantry staples. They’re high in protein, and the waffles help meet your daily whole-grain requirements. (I like Nature’s Path Flax Plus organic waffles.) 


All of the ingredients in today’s recipe should be readily available at your local natural and organic food store.
