Waffling for Waffles
Making Sweet, Salty, and Spicy Waffles for National Waffle Day
Monday can be a drag, especially right now, but we know how to cheer you up. Waffles! On this #NationalWaffleDay, we’ve got some recipes that work for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Today celebrates the patent of the waffle iron by Cornelius Swarthout 151 years ago on August 24th. And rumor has it that the pilgrims brought waffles on to the Mayflower after a quick stop in the Netherlands before sailing to America.
Our friend the waffle is pretty versatile, taking on chicken, bacon, sausage, and chipped beef or syrup, fruit, powered sugar, and ice cream. Waffle is even a verb, meaning “failure to make up one’s mind”. Maybe that’s because we can’t decide on how we want to eat them…
