I bought G a waffle iron for Christmas last year, after he declared waffles his favorite breakfast/brunch treat and brunch his favorite meal. We used the waffle iron once and since then it has been languishing on our kitchen shelves. Thank goodness for MoFo changing all that.
As you can see, I have not yet perfected the art of finagling "non stick" waffles out of the damned contraption but these tasted just fine.
There is maple syurp in the batter, so the waffles themselves are slightly sweet but bananas and extra dried figs on top of anything never hurt.
Yes, I did really eat these on a Tuesday morning, though reheated. The waffles were made on a slow Sunday morning but taste just as fresh after a 5-10 minute toast in the oven. Jealous? Don't be! Make them!
Do you have any forgotten kitchen appliances?
Oh, and can we get a bad-ass theme song up in here? THX!
