Valentine’s Day is Wednesday and this recipe is so you can make your favorite people/person the crispiest Belgian waffles ever. These are such a winner of a recipe. I love them! This recipe gets its crispiness from the beaten egg white with sugar. It almost creates a meringue that gets folded into the waffle batter, resulting in the a deliciously amazing waffle.
I like these as classic as can be…with a bit of whipped cream and blueberries. But feel free to douse them with maple syrup or dust them with powdered sugar. The one thing that’s required is definitely.
