Irregular Meditations

From the Mind of Mister Jones

March 7th, 2010

Breakfast can be eaten almost anytime of the day. Brunch, brinner (that’s breakfast for dinner) and any other time you’re suffering from a hangover. <long pause>

I love waffles. Now don’t get me wrong I love pancakes, but waffles give that little extra amount of joy that I so love! Each toasted square I add peanut butter (or regular butter) and flood that son-of-a-bitch with maple syrup. The waffle looks so good, it starts to call your name, “I’m delicious! Come get diabetes from me!”

Most of my waffle mixes are already premixed (boring). But I did some digging around on allrecipies.com and found a great recipe to make! Just look at that bastard! That’s a mean looking mo-fo waffle.

Whole Grain Waffles

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs, beaten HARD
  • 1 3/4 cups skim milk (almost like water)
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup flax seed meal
  • 1/4 cup wheat germ
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, beat the shit out of the eggs, milk, oil, applesauce, and vanilla. Beat in whole wheat pastry flour, flax seed meal, wheat germ, all-purpose flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt until batter is smooth. Oh yeah!
  2. Preheat a waffle iron, and coat with cooking spray (my waffle maker votes against spray but I don’t give a shit). Pour batter into waffle iron in batches, and cook until crisp and golden brown. Mmmm … toasty.

Now that looks tasty. I’d recommend adding blueberries.

After I create my masterpiece, I start cooking two eggs with garlic, salt, pepper and a tiny bit of chives. I like sunny side up, so the yoke oozes out. Normally I’d make toast and add the eggs on top, but that’s a lot of carbs. Gotta watch that figure.
