Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, am I right? Although my breakfast is pretty boring during the week (think cereal, bagels, etc.), I love to get creative on the weekends for my family. Everything from homemade waffles to French toast to cinnamon rolls (and don't forget the bacon!), we always eat good. To get us through our winter slump I created the most fun and delicious breakfast treat - Cinnamon French Toast Breakfast Tacos! I think no time is too early for a sweet treat, so why not have ice cream for breakfast? Eating ice cream for breakfast is sure to turn your morning around and keep the kiddos happy!

These breakfast tacos feature Hudsonville Ice Cream's Limited Edition Cinnamon French Toast flavor. This flavor is made with a caramel cinnamon ice cream base with cinnamon shortbread pieces and ribbons of waffle cone and icing. I tucked big scoops of ice cream into homemade pizzelle cookies (the "taco" shell) and topped them off with fresh berries. They were a huge hit!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat the pizzelle press while preparing the batter (I prefer setting 3).
  2. Add the flour and baking powder to a small bowl and stir to combine; set aside.
  3. Add the eggs and sugar in a medium bowl and beat until smooth and light in color. Add the melted butter and vanilla and mix until combined. Add the flour mixture and mix until just combined.
  4. Drop a heaping teaspoon of dough onto each of the cookie grids. Close the lid and lock. When done, remove the pizzelle from the press using a heatproof spatula and immediately fold over a dowel or the handle of a wooden spoon to form a shell. After one minute, place the pizzelle on a rack to cool completely. 
  5. Alternate: If you don't have a pizzelle press, you can use store bought pizzelle! Remove them from the package and microwave them, one at a time, for 20-25 seconds, until soft. Follow the instructions in the step above to form the shell shape.
  6. When the pizzelle are cooled, add two scoops of ice cream to each shell. Top with fresh berries and serve.
