First, the thought; if you want to win some, you must first be winsome.
Now, one of my favorite breakfast recipes--my grandfather's waffle recipe.
4 large eggs
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (my change, grandpa used white)
2 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
3tbsp butter or bacon drippings
1tsp vanilla extract.
Pre-heat waffle iron. In one bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and sugar. In other bowl, separate eggs and leave whites in bowl #2. Put yolks in bowl #1 with flour mixture, add vanilla and milk, and mix. Melt butter in saucepan, small skillet, or in a cup in microwave.
Beat egg whites stuff with hand eggbeater--motorized is cheating, and this might be your exercise for the day! Mix melted butter into flour mixture and then fold beaten egg whites into mixture until fully mixed. Do not stir or beat them in, as it will destroy that foamy cholesterol goodness.
Put about 3/4 cup to 1 cup of batter into heated waffle iron and cook for about 3 minutes, or until steam ends. Enjoy with maple syrup or other toppings--our family likes blueberries, chocolate, and honey.
Serve to your dear wife with a good cup of strong coffee, preferably made in a French Press.
