Breakfast

HA! I think I’m going to make another category about making you jealous of me!

Today, we had an office-wide breakfast. I work in a very small office. We enjoy doing little luncheons where everybody brings something different. I always love these kinds of parties just so I can see what other people are going to come up with!

I used my homemade waffles recipe that is already posted on here. I got to use my Winnie-the-Pooh waffle maker. My boss kept saying he wanted a Tigger waffle, so I just flipped it over.

I also brought some syrup and milk. Julie brought fresh strawberries, strawberries and juice (made by putting sugar on it and letting it sit), and homemade whipped cream (just heavy whipping cream and sugar). Jacky made a Ham and Egg Frittata Biscuit casserole (chunks of ham, peppers, onion, and spinach mixed with egg and baked on top of biscuits flattened in a pan). Bev made a hash brown casserole (full of cheesy goodness!) and brought Simply Orange juice (my fave). And Cindy brought some turkey bacon and sausage AND reg. bacon and sausage.

Needless to say, I was not very productive for the 2 hours after that. I was so full and needed a good nap. I love parties. 🙂

Homemade Waffles

I love waffles. I love my waffle maker too! I need to put up pictures of all my favorite appliances! I’ll get to that soon hopefully! Nate came over yesterday before church and I made breakfast. Here’s the recipe I used. I halved the original recipe because I knew we couldn’t eat all those waffles! And the first time I made them a couple of weeks ago, I used Baking Soda instead of Baking Powder (I really thought that’s what I read), and it had a metallic taste to it. So, just don’t try to substitute one for the other FYI!

1 c. all purpose flour
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1 egg
2/3 c. skim milk
1/8 c. vegetable oil

Preheat waffle iron as directed by the manufacturer. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; mix until well blended. In a small bowl (or I used a coffee cup like my momma did when I was growing up), beat egg slightly and add milk. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Poor the egg mixture into the well and mix until it is smooth. You make the well so that it is less clumpy. Add the oil and stir (the oil makes it really shiny!). I spray my waffle iron w/ non-stick spray before I pour on my waffle mix so that it comes out without a problem. Pour about 1/2 c. of batter onto a hot iron for a single waffle. Close iron and cook until brown and crisp.

This should make 6 servings. One serving is 1/2 waffle. However, since I was just making it for 2 people and didn’t want to deal w/ leftovers or sit by the waffle iron, I just poured half of this batter on the waffle iron for 2 sets of waffles! You just need to make sure you let it cook a little longer than normal, but not too long. Keep your eye on it!

Each 1/2 waffle (not mine, obviously) is 134 calories and 6 grams of fat. It has 191 mg of sodium, 16 grams of carbs, and 4 grams of protein. You may substitute 2 egg whites or 1 /4 c. egg substitute for 1 egg to lower the cholesterol.

For a variety, you can add pecans, chocolate chips, fresh chopped blueberries, or fresh chopped strawberries before you add the egg mixture.

Serve with your favorite type of syrup!
