Easy as Pumpkin Pie Breakfast

My love of all things pumpkin is pretty obvious. It makes breads moist and colorful, it lends itself beautifully in hearty soups paired with sage, and of course nothing compares to the delicious custard filling of pumpkin pie. A few Christmases ago I received a waffle iron and it’s perfect for making fast breakfasts, but you can easily use this recipe for pancakes as well. I cheat; I use complete pancake mix, but adding hidden ingredients like cinnamon and pumpkin makes for an extra-special breakfast treat.
