First, let me just say that I am convinced my husband and I share a brain. After almost twenty years together, we can easily finish each other’s thoughts. It’s a little scary sometimes.
So, it didn’t completely surprise me when, after weeks of fighting the urge to buy a waffle iron, I walked into the kitchen to find one sitting on the counter, even though I hadn’t mentioned it to him.
My dilemma was that I didn’t think I would use it enough to justify buying one, but man was I wrong! I use this thing constantly. No more tasteless, frozen frizbees around here! I make a couple of batches on the weekend, let them cool and throw them in a ziplock bag and store in the freezer.
They are great to pop in the toaster oven in the morning. The kids absolutely love them and I love that they are not loaded with preservatives and how easy they are to prepare.
If you have a waffle iron, try this recipe. It is simple and delicious. It makes a flavorful, light and airy waffle, perfect to be topped with fresh fruit, or butter and syrup. Sometimes I even throw some blueberries right into the batter. Whichever way you serve them, they are so good!
So “L’Eggo your Eggo” and try something easy, delicious and unprocessed.
