Belgian Waffles

20 Aug

Sick of breakfast stuff yet? Me neither!!! 🙂 In my opinion, the two meals that matter most are breakfast and dessert. I love them both equally. Waffles top my list, so long as they are good waffles. I can do pancakes from a mix, but not waffles. They are dry and stick in your throat, so they are no good unless you have a tall glass of milk right next to your plate. You should never have to wash your food down in order to literally get it to go down. I love, love these Belgian waffles! The egg whites make them so light, and I love that you use the egg yolks too; I don’t get that guilty feeling that comes from throwing away perfectly good yolks, like some poor chicken sacrificed itself for no good reason (ok, I know most eggs are not fertilized…but guilt does funny things to your rationale). I’m usually the one on waffle-iron duty, so, in theory, I should be the last one to eat – but I don’t like to wait. Waffles are best fresh out of the cooker, and these are good enough to eat plain, so I just eat as I go. 🙂 Feel free to dress them up and drench them in syrup too. But be prepared to eat plenty!!!
