As if I don't have real work to do at home. Yes, I played with my food again. This time, I made Corn Muffin Waffles, and I liked them. There's a song in there somewhere.
Stuffed French Toast Waffles got me thinking about what else I could cook in the underused waffle iron. I had two boxes in the pantry of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix and decided to sacrifice one in the test.
I made the waffles/muffins according to the directions on the box, and added a tablespoon of vegetable oil. I thought the oil might help the waffles not stick to the waffle iron- and it worked. Whether they would have stuck without the added oil, I don't know.
You can see the results of my experiment, noted A, B, and C. I got sidetracked on C and left them in too long, but they were still edible. A was me being too anxious to see what was going on. B was because of the little bear's bed, no that's the wrong fairy tale. But it was nearly perfect.
These are good topped with a fried egg, the egg keeps the waffle warm and steamy, not hard and crisp. No sawing required.
Sometimes it's okay to play with your food. You might like the result and be inspired to play some more. Not always, but sometimes.
