Waffles - Homemade And Loving It!

By Sinea Pies

How about a nice, warm, fluffy homemade waffle with butter and thick maple syrup for breakfast! 
Or maybe lunch or dinner?
Put some sizzling slices of bacon on the side and you have true comfort food!

Waffles, today, have been made so simple. Just pop a couple of Eggo®'s in the toaster and, voilá,  you have waffles. But if you want that "melt in your mouth" experience, you are going to have to make them yourself. My favorite recipe is from Bisquick®. Their classic waffle recipe. Here's how you do it:

Ingredients? You'll need Bisquick®'s Original Pancake & Baking Mix.
Plus: cooking oil, milk and eggs.

Preheat your waffle maker.
In most models, the light goes on as soon as you plug it in.
The light goes off when it is heated to temperature.
With many models, no greasing is necessary.
If yours is older, you may need a slightest spray of cooking spray on it to prevent sticking.

Make the batter (recipe below) and pour onto the heated waffle maker leaving the edges uncovered*. Wait a few seconds, close the top and watch the steam.
When the steam greatly decreases, it's time to open the waffle iron up.
*The reason for leaving the edges without batter is to prevent overflow. When you close the top, the batter will squeeze to the edges.

Mmmm. Golden brown waffle #1 is ready! Using a fork, gently loosen and slip the waffle onto a plate. Serve with butter and syrup or your favorite topping. Repeat and serve until everyone is satisfied!

Classic Bisquick Waffle Recipe
2 cups Bisquick® Original Pancake & Baking Mix
2 T. cooking oil
1 1/3 cup milk
1 large egg

Preheat waffle maker.
Combine ingredients and blend until most of the lumps are gone.
Pour some batter onto the waffle maker.
Close the top.
Watch the steam. When steam noticeably diminishes, gently open to see if it is done. Remove using a fork.

Have leftover batter?
Don't throw it away.
Come back next week for part 2 to find out what to do with it!
