Crispy Waffles

I have been on the hunt for the perfect, crispy waffle for YEARS. Years, my friends. We have a delicious, healthy, hearty recipe for Oatmeal Waffles on here, but I wanted something simple and light and crisp–you know, the guilty kind with absolutley no health benefits. I’ve tried folding in stiff egg whites, varying sugars, varying fats, all sorts of recipes! Then, I found it. The secret ingredient is cornstarch! They are crisp, light, it has¬†minimal ingredients, no fancy extra steps, I’m obsessed. Perfect for Buttermilk Syrup, Coconut Syrup, or even Peanut Butter Cinnamon Syrup.

Cheese and chives are always a perfectly acceptable answer as well! This really comes together in a cinch. My inspiration is a restaurant we used to frequent in Southern California, Bruxie. They do all sorts of waffle sandwiches and custard shakes and holy cow I miss that place. Of course Bruxie has a Green Eggs and Ham sandwich, so I created it at home and friends, it is golden. First make your waffles, heat up some canadian bacon, and fry a couple of eggs. Last, top it all with pesto and cheese. So much cheese.
