Kitchen Tip Tuesdays: Homemade freezer waffles
My dad loves waffles and I'm tired of having the frozen kind in the freezer. I was wondering if you thought it was possible to make a lot of your recipe for waffle batter, make them into waffles, and then freeze enough of them to last through the week?
Yes! The waffles are totally freezable!
I make mine and cook them like normal but don't get them too dark (just done, but not really browned). Cool them and then freeze in an airtight container or bag (I do bag since it's easier).
You can pop them in a toaster, thawed or still frozen. Do it on a light setting at first, to see how long they need to toast to get hot without burning. They should taste great, especially if they weren't over-cooked on the waffle iron! :)
You can do this with pancakes, too, by the way, if they're not too big to fit in your toaster. :)
A waffle-making photo tutorial that my boys helped me with can be found here. (Boy, those pictures bring back memories!!)
And my waffles recipes for quick reference:
Classic (no-sugar) homemade waffles -- a really great recipe handed down from my grandmother!
Belgian Waffles -- very sweet but make a fabulous dessert and are the BEST re-warmed waffles I've ever had!
Best Waffle Batter -- not as good as the above two, but a whole lot faster to mix up!
