One of our favorite meals to make on the weekend together as a family is Belgium Waffles! We love pulling out the waffle iron and making them fresh while a pan of bacon is sizzling on the stove. Delicious!
In the past, we’ve used Bisquick. It’s got a great flavor and is always good. But, recently I’ve been trying to steer away from processed foods for my family and have been making more convenient foods by scratch. Since there’s a ton of waffle recipes out there and they’re easy to make with ingredients you already have on hand – I’ve been experimenting and trying to come up with a favorite recipe.
So far, this is my favorite recipe we’ve tried. It’s soft on the inside and nice and crispy on the outside. You can either use a regular waffle iron or a Belgium one. Either way, they’re gonna be great and you’ve left out all the preservatives and unnecessary ingredients.
If you have leftovers, freeze them and just pull them out as needed. You can warm them in the oven or microwave.
