Waffles – A Breakfast Favorite
Over the past few months I did not have a lot of time for writing and blogging, so I was surprised to see that my stats were still at about the same level. What were visitors reading? A quick look told me that the post with the most views for several months now was my recipe for waffles on the George Foreman Grill. Maybe a lot of people were getting Foreman Grills for Christmas, or perhaps they just like homemade waffles. I don’t know because they are not leaving comments.
Today is a re-post of that basic waffle recipe which I adapted from several I found on the internet.
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.
Classic Waffle Recipe
• 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!
