Waffles!

Sunday morning and waffles.... just seen to go together.  I thought I'd share a few waffle tips with you.



Here's a tip from my daughter-in-law, Cady.  She and my son gave us the waffle iron.  It's one of those cool ones that flip over and beep when it's done.  Anyway- she uses regular pancake mix- no special recipe.  (I like Bisquick)  She adds a little vanilla and a shake of cinnamon to the batter.  WOW!  What a difference!  Thanks for the tip, Cady!

 I always make a big batch and freeze what we don't eat.  They fit perfectly in this Tupperware container.  I put little sandwich bags in between to keep them from sticking together.  Just warm them however you warm any frozen waffles. You can just pop them in the toaster to warm them.  I like to put them in the microwave for about 30 seconds and then lay them in a little pan (my omelet pan) until crisp.  Be careful-  flip them over once in a while and just warm them- they burn fast.


By the way- I warm leftover pizza the same way.  A pizza shop owner taught me how to do this.  I put the slice in the microwave just long enough to barely warm it.  Then I put it in a frying pan to crisp up the bottom and warm it a little longer.  The reason I put it in the microwave first is if you put it cold from the fridge in the frying pan, it's burned on the bottom by the time you get it warmed all the way through.

Time for me to go eat a waffle.  I think I'll put some blueberries on it....

I love waffles. I use Bisquick too. I'll have to try the vanilla and cinnamon next time I make them. What a good idea to crisp in a pan. Since there are only two of us I always have left over batter. I'll have to try that next time too.

I've always wanted to have homemade frozen waffles. I didn't realize it was so easy!

i use a regular pancake mix, adding an extra egg, vanilla and cinnamon, top them with home-made rhubarb sauce [also with vanilla and cinnamon added]; for a real treat, i've made the waffle with buckwheat flour.

In case you want to have more fun with your waffle iron - http://www.ehow.com/how_2123352_use-waffle-iron-creatively.html ;-) We have made up extra also for freezing and mornings were you're running late. Peanut butter and jam in between two waffles makes a nice breakfast sandwich on the run.

We use Bisquick here, too. Only instead of freezing leftover cooked waffles, we freeze the batter....works fine. Enjoyed the quilt show photos! How's the shawlette coming? I have 6 rows and then the border.......
