How long has it been since you made waffles. I mean real waffles, not Bisquick, or pop in the toaster waffles. To be honest I haven't made them in a few years myself. This is a wonderful old recipe that I did use. I loved it because they were light and tender and the batter could be made the night before.
These also make a wonderful base for Turkey/Chicken Hash.
4 tablespoons butter
2 eggs, separated
1 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup half-and-half
1/4 teaspoon salt
Cream butter. Add well-beaten egg yolks and beat 2 minutes. Add flour, milk and cream slowly. Add salt to egg whites, beat until stiff and fold into yolk mixture gently with a rubber spatula. Bake on a hot waffle iron until golden. Batter will keep a day or two in refrigerator. Top with powdered sugar and serve with strawberries, bacon and maple syrup for a wonderful breakfast.
