Easy Strawberry Syrup

I actually made this over a week ago, but still wanted to go ahead and share it with the blog world.  I woke up one Saturday morning and remembered that we had an entire box of frozen waffles I hadn’t even cracked open yet.  I really love frozen waffles.  Movie Mom used to make frozen waffle sandwiches for me and OYB (my older younger brother) when we were kids.  They had peanut butter and sliced bananas and a slight sprinkle of white sugar.  I loved those things!

I almost always have peanut butter on top of my frozen toaster waffles, but this time I was feeling fruity.  We didn’t have any fresh fruit in the house though.  So I decided to use some frozen strawberries to make a strawberry fruit topping.  It was super easy and fast.

Easy Strawberry Syrup-y Topping

1 cup frozen sliced strawberries (I think fresh would work too)
2 tbsp pure maple syrup (or to taste)

In a small saucepan, combine strawberries and maple syrup.  Heat over medium-low until strawberries thaw and start giving off their juices.  Once strawberries are soft, remove from heat and mash with a potato masher or a fork until desired consistency.  Use as desired!

Here it is on top of my waffle:

I had to take a bite first to make sure it tasted okay!

There was enough strawberry syrup to generously top two waffles with about 3-4 ounces left over (almost a jelly jar full).  A day or two later I stirred the leftover syrup into a plain soy yogurt for a really delicious snack.

What do you like on top of your frozen waffles?
