i know summer isn't really waffle season, but i came upon this revelation from joy, the baker:
as many said, why didn't i think of that? but, i might add in some toasted pecans to the batter!
what waffles have you made that were fabulous, and which ones were, um, "less than successful"?

That ECU of the bacon in the little cup is KILLING me and I just ate a hearty breakfast, fergodssakes! I don't know how I missed this thread earlier. Mmmmm!
karykat, one kat to another, you really must try a cornmeal waffle. I've just used quick 'n dirty Jiffy mix for waffles to accompany chili and it was a wonderful thing. Let's face it, cornmeal ANYTHING is good.
That looks like a great recipe! I love the cookbook "Waffles From Morning To Midnight". Lot's of creative recipes for breakfast and beyond! I made the ones with dried cranberries and orange zest and thought they were a real winner!
Thanks for the shout out on the eggplant parm waffles. They really are good.
Inspired once again to pull out the old wafflemaker, I made this for lunch today...
Diced one raw zuchinni, about a heaping cup. Diced one of those fancy flavored precooked sausages, mine was TJ's chicken asiago. Grated about 3 oz. white cheddar. Added about two rounded tablespoons of soy flour, a scant tsp of baking powder, a half tsp. baking soda, garlic powder, cayenne, and mixed with two beaten eggs. There was very little "batter" just enough to sort of bind everything together thick. Cooked in the wafflemaker using olive oil. I got about 4, 5-inch waffles. They tasted awesome! Crisp outside, and the zuchinni got nice and tender inside. Low carb. Other veggies and cheese would work fine, I'm sure.
Mine aren't too terribily creative but I browned breakfast sausage and added it to my waffle batter along with some grated cheddar. They were amazing! Thought my husband was going to fall over...
I made them another night but it was a trio of breakfast meats - bacon, ham, and sausage, separately but all with cheese. The sausage was the winner again - it was the only one that packed the flavor. And who doesn't mix their sausage with the syrup and waffle anyway?
I learned about some good waffles from my aunt. I think she learned about them when she lived in Holland. You put raw bacon bits, apple bits, and gouda cheese in the waffle batter. Once the waffles are all done you top them with whipped cream (no sugar added) and a little syrup. Mmm.. I'm getting hungry writing this post.
Squash or pumpkin waffles are really good. You add some squash puree to the batter, it makes the waffle very tender and moist and adds a nice flavor.
