The Waffle is a classic, originating in Belgium; this version perfected in the American South. Paired with butter and syrup, fresh fruit, nuts, chocolate or ice cream, they’re wonderful. The soldiers of WWI, fighting in the battlefields would take whatever little time they could in Brussels, where these waffles were the best food they could often find. It was soldiers from the South who brought the recipes back home after the war – an unsung act of our veterans.

Serve these delightful treats with fruit, berries, chocolate, whipped cream, syrup, butter, bacon, sausage, ham, nuts, jams, or anything you please. Perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner or late night supper.
