Hey, there! We’re back for another Taste Testing Tuesday! Today’s yummy food is…..waffles! Ooo, are you drooling along with me? We’ll look at 5 suggestions of tasty ways to eat a waffle.
Waffles come in different shapes and sizes. You can buy them frozen from the grocery store or if you have a waffle iron, you can make your own. For today’s test, I made waffles “from scratch” and cooked them in our waffle iron. In case you’ve never seen a waffle iron, here’s what they look like.
You can mix up your favorite waffle batter…I used the recipe in my Betty Crocker cookbook.
A handy-dandy tip is to pour the waffle batter into a container that has a lip for pouring.
Once your waffle iron is hot, pour some batter in and close the lid. 4-5 minutes is how long it took my waffle iron to cook 1 waffle but be sure to check the instructions that came with your waffle iron. Our first suggestion today uses a plain waffle with nothing cooked into it. But there are so many tasty things you can put on TOP of your waffle! Like butter, maple syrup, molasses, honey, jelly, fruit syrups, etc, etc. I love them with butter and maple syrup. Mmmm!
Suggestion #2…sprinkle a few blueberries on top of the batter in the waffle iron before you close it to cook your waffle.
Here’s a picture of the cooked version.
Suggestion #3…sprinkle some roasted pecans on top of the batter before cooking.
It might be hard to see the pecans, but they are there and taste sooo good!
Suggestion #4…sprinkle some grated cheddar cheese on top before cooking.
Again, it might be hard to see the cheese after the waffle has been cooked but it tastes pretty yummy!
Suggestion #5…cooked up apples spread on top. I put some butter in a skillet and peeled and sliced an apple. After the apple slices started to get soft, I sprinkled in some cinnamon and brown sugar. Then cooked it just a little longer till the brown sugar melted and everything was mixed together. OH YUM! This was delicious!!
I’m sure you can think of many more ways to eat a waffle. Maybe 2 pieces of waffle with some scrambled eggs and cheese inside? How about some peanut butter? Are you hungry now? 😉 Did you make a chart so you can remember your favorite way to eat a waffle? I hope you have fun with your Waffle Taste Testing Tuesday! 🙂
