The thought of making Waffles scares some people. I think because it takes a special piece of equipment. Never fear! You don’t need a fancy or expensive waffle iron – Bruce uses his mom’s 40 year old hand-me-down. After a little seasoning by use, it works great. So don’t be afraid to get one cheap, on ebay, or at a yard sale. 

We have Waffles for either breakfast or dinner nearly once a month, so it is worth owning a waffle iron. I have a friend who loves making both omelets and hashed brown potatoes in hers, so hers does triple duty – earning it’s keep. We haven’t tried either yet, but they sound good to me! 🙂

Our family loves when Bruce makes Waffles. Once you master the time & temp amounts, waffles are an easy, comforting go-to hard-day dinner, with ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. At the bottom of this page, please find a Healthy Waffle Recipe, and one for our yummy Warm Apple Compote. Alrighty then. You Ready? Let’s Get Cooking!
