|Buttermilk Belgian Waffles|
(cooling before wrapping & freezing)
About a month ago after opening the door to one of my kitchen cabinets, suddenly I "spied" my Belgian Waffle Maker! It's only been "untouched" for about 6 years! Other than taking it down when cleaning the cabinet shelves. Remembering that I had Buttermilk in my fridge, the next step- King Arthur Flour's website. There it was- a recipe for Buttermilk Belgian Waffles! The photo looked so yummy & I had the Buttermilk!
- I use King Arthur Unbleached Flour whenever I make pancakes.
- My less cholesterol habit: Substitute Olive Oil for sauteing & baking for Butter.
- Another less cholesterol habit: Rather than 2 whole Eggs, I'd use 1 whole Egg + 2 Egg Whites.
No, we did not devour the entire batch! The extra waffles were cooled & wrapped in plastic wrap/ placed in Freezer bags for even quicker breakfasts other mornings. My method of reheating: my microwave.
The holidays are in our future! If you are looking for a quick, easy & absolutely yummy breakfast to serve your overnight guests Buttermilk Belgian Waffles are great! Take out your waffle maker! If you don't have one, that small appliance would be a great gift to receive! My waffle maker is at least 15 years old. Make & try these. They are so good!

- In a smaller bowl beat 1 Egg + 2 Egg Whites.

- Add liquid ingredients to dry ingredients, stirring until almost smooth.
- Spray Belgian Waffle Maker with PAM before preheating, only when making 1st waffle in batch.

- Close lid. Cook for 2- 3 minutes - until steaming stops.

Using the Olive Oil, no butter/ margarine is needed. Maple syrup or Strawberries are our fave toppings! What will yours be?
