  • As a weeknight time saver, why not consider making the waffles on the weekend when you have more time and then freeze them to use during the week?
  • To reheat, just pop them in the toaster or place them on a baking sheet which has been fitted with a rack and put them in a 325-degree oven to warm while you’re making the sloppy Joe’s. Dinner will be ready in minutes! I hope you’re hungry!! 🙂

To make this meal of Homemade Sloppy Joes Over Cornbread Waffles even more kid-friendly, (yeah, I’m helpful like that), you might want to drizzle some maple syrup and melted butter over the cornbread waffles (not mentioned in the recipe) before topping with the sloppy Joe’s, for an extra layer of flavor.

I LOVE that idea and wish I would have thought of it sooner. LOL  Ah well, next time…Or at least that’s my story (book humor), and I’m sticking to it!
