anyway, the weather had me craving comfort food....and after a week of chili, slow cooker food, roasted everything...oh, and did i mention all the food samples at the fancy food show?....i was at a loss as to what to make for dinner last night...nothing sounded good. i decided to ignore dinner choices and move to breakfast options.
2 beaten eggs (organic if you can)
1 3/4 whole milk
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil or grapeseed oil
1 c. unbleached bread flour
1 c. unbleached whole wheat flour
1 tbsp + 1 tsp baking powder
pinch sea salt
2 tbsp pure maple syrup
**i use a large measuring glass pitcher to make the batter because it is easier to pour into the waffle iron**
preheat waffle iron according to manufacturer's directions. add eggs, milk, oil, flour, baking powder and sea salt to pitcher of bowl. whisk just until liquids are incorporated into flour. add maple syrup and whisk again. pour batter onto hot waffle iron ( amount depends on the size of the iron so experiment until you get the perfect amount for your machine. you want to batter to just cover the waffle grid). waffles are ready when they look dark golden brown.
i top my waffles with sliced fruit (we had bananas last night), and additional maple syrup.
so...what is your favorite "breakfast for dinner" choice?
