My husband came home the other day from Costco with a Waring Pro Belgian Waffle Maker that was on clearance - $39.97. I always thought that it would be nice to have a waffle maker but always resisted spending the money. I am very happy with his bargain purchase!
Traditional Belgian waffle recipes are yeast based and require a lot of prep time. I am not so good at planning ahead and never have a lot of extra time so I went with an "instant" recipe. The waffles were crisp on the outside and light in the middle. As good as any Belgian waffle I have had out. These were super easy and fantastic.
I served them with a quick blueberry sauce and real maple syrup. I love Sunday mornings!
