I needed a breakfast to make this weekend while my friends were in town. I saw this waffle recipe when I was on FoodGawker and knew I had to try it. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to make them for my friends, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t indulge!! 🙂 I am hoping it will be as good as it sounded. After all, I am giving up my homemade chicken finger leftovers to eat these! I do wish the fat content was less, but I don’t think it will be a problem on normal days. I just have so many leftovers from the holiday weekend that aren’t the most healthy. I was originally going to make this with all white flour, but I broke down and got the whole wheat, too. (peer pressure!! 😉 ). I hope I can find some bread recipes to use it that won’t include any other weird ingredients.
Ingredients (getting better at remembering ALL the ingredients 😀 )
Ready to mix. Since I didn’t have full pecans, I just measured out 1 serving of the chips
Waffle making station all set up
First one. I switched to a bigger cup measure after this
Didn’t help (facepalm)
Finally! – well, almost. Can anyone say impatient?
These waffles spread and swell a LOT less than other recipes that I have used. I have issues with overfilling/underfilling the waffle iron anyway, so I was kind of conservative when I was pouring initially. For this one, I filled it all up, but just didn’t wait long enough. I am really ok with that, though. It will make it perfect to take to work and throw in the toaster oven
Nice waffle, very indulgent, though. I think between the oil and the nuts, this will be a sometimes food (whoever taught cookie monster that should be shot, btw). I am glad that my friends weren’t here though – see above with the impatience – I wouldn’t want them to see waffles in that state. Also, I don’t want to share 😉 Next time I think I want to try adding some cinnamon and toasting the pecans a little bit. I would like to cut down on the oil used, but I don’t have enough experience in waffle making for that….yet 😮 – lol
Thanks for the recipe and breakfast!! 🙂
