Breakfast: Waffles on the George Foreman Grill
One of the great things about my new George Foreman Grill is that it has interchangeable cooking plates. In addition to ceramic grill plates, which are awesome by the way, there are a variety of baking and waffle plates. I love waffles, but never owned a waffle iron. Turns out they are as easy to make as pancakes.
This is a basic waffle recipe adapted from the many I found on the internet.
• 2 cups all-purpose flour
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 4 teaspoons baking powder
• 2 tablespoons white sugar
• 2 eggs
• 2 cups warm milk
• ½ cup butter, melted
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat waffle iron to desired temperature. For the grill plates, preheat for 5 minutes at 425 degrees.
In a separate bowl, beat the eggs. Stir in the milk, butter and vanilla. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture; beat until blended.
Pour the batter into a preheated waffle iron. Cook until golden and crisp. Using the grill plates, waffles are ready in about 6 to 7 minutes. Be careful not to overfill the plates (like I did). When I closed the grill, batter ran out the back!
A note about the waffle plates:
While the grilling plates are ceramic and safe to use near pets and children, the waffle plates may not be. They are non-stick and contain PTFE or PFOA (aka Teflon), which makes them unsafe for use around pet birds, especially when heated to a high temperature. I cook my waffles outside or in the basement. A bit of a pain, but safer for my birds.
