Different waffles -- like eggnog waffles
I just saw this recipe for eggnog waffles. They sounded kind of good. Here's the recipe:
From a new site called FoodPress that aggregates food blogs:http://foodpress.com/
I'm thinking of getting my waffler out and making waffles to freeze and reheat.
Any good ideas?
Alton Brown's Pecan-Sour Cream Waffles are excellent. He serves them with burnt peach ice cream, I think, or some such. But I like them with a little syrup, strawberries, and bourbon (or whatever I have in the liquor cabinet) whipped cream. Also I coarsely -- not finely -- chop the pecans.
grilled cheese waffles (add grated cheese to the batter)
scone batter used in a waffle iron (it works)
flecks of bacon (bits) work well
grated fresh ginger
I tried red pepper flakes and liked it
certainly close to an eggnog waffle would be the inclusion of maple syrup, dark honeys or molasses in the batter
Raised waffles are great and they freeze and reheat very well.
1/2 C warm water
2-1/4 tsp yeast (one package)
2 C warm milk
1/2 C melted butter
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
2 C all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
Put the water and yeast into a large bowl and mix them together. Let stand for 5 minutes or so. Add the milk, cooled butter, salt, sugar and flour, and beat until smooth and blended. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and leave on the counter overnight.
When you're ready to cook the waffles, beat in the eggs and baking soda.
Place batter into a very hot waffle iron until crisp and enjoy!
