Waffles that Wow!

…also known as Mitch’s Famous Waffles. Waffles are a standard on Christmas morning when we host the neighbors still clad in their pajamas. Mitch is the cook! All I can say is these are really good waffles. Straight up, these waffles are great—although big, they are light and airy. (Only those with the heartiest of appetites will eat many more than one at a time.) But the beauty of this recipe is that you can vary it in so many ways with different add-ins. We typically have banana slices and blueberries on-hand to add to the batter, and sliced strawberries on the table. (Adding shredded apple to the batter is also an option.) A sprinkle of powdered sugar before serving… always a hit with the kids!
