The other morning Cliff carried his breakfast to the table, and he had a big grin on his face.  How come?  He said he was hungry, and these were his favorite waffles.  Now when I was able, I'd made hot cakes and omelets, and French toast, among other breakfasts, but I had never made waffles.

A short while ago, I ran across Amalie's waffle recipe -- the ones she used to make for us.  These were like no others -- light, tasty, downright delicious!  I'm not up to doing much of anything in the kitchen any more, so I asked Cliff if he wanted to try.  Yes, we have a waffle iron; two, in fact.

Now, if given a choice, Cliff chooses Amalie's waffles for breakfast.  I felt it was only fair to share this mouth-watering delight:

WAFFLES (especially Belgian)

        1 egg - separated
        1 egg -not separated
        1 cup buttermilk
        1-1/4 Cup Bisquick
        1/4 Cup melted butter, (or margarine, or salad oil)
        1 tsp. vanilla

Beat egg whites (with a  bit of cream of Tartar, if necessary).  Mix beaten egg yolks, buttermilk, and Bisquick, plus melted shortening.  Add beaten egg whites.  Set waffle iron (Teflon) to medium, pour in 1/2 Cup to 2/3 Cup waffle mixture.  Time for 5 minutes.  (I never wash waffle iron, and I never change the setting.)  I time the waffles with the watch I wear.  This makes 3 waffles, just enough for two for breakfast.

Cartoons --


  1. Yup. Beating the egg whites is the way to go.

  2. Sounds delicious! I know when my bagel is toasted when the smoke detector goes off.
