Waffle Saturday--Upgrade!

Saturday, May 28, 2011

Mr. Schwartz and I have Waffle Saturdays whenever we are at home Saturday mornings.  I will ask "waffles for breakfast?" and Mr. Schwartz will reply "is it Saturday?"  Yes, always waffles.  It usually goes that Mr. Schwartz will make the waffles since I make dinner every night because I get home from work before he does.  Our rule is the cook doesn't clean--well clean everything I guess.

So today I thought I'd switch things up and make waffles for us.  I had a little idea pop into my head when I woke up this morning--Almond Poppyseed Waffles.  Just the addition of two little ingredients and wow a whole new waffle is created.

Musical Selection: Stole My Heart by Little and Ashley.  Just a cute little tune for a Saturday morning cooking for my lovie.  Guess I'm really cheesy today.  Oh well....
Start by mixing up a batch of your favorite waffles from a mix.  The yield on the recipe I used said it will make 12 4" waffles. You can totally make waffles from scratch but we use this huge bag from Costco.  My mom always made home-made waffles from her orange Betty Crocker cookbook which I believe she received as a wedding present.  You can find the page by looking for the one that is vegetable oil stained.
After you mix up a batch of waffles add a teaspoon of poppy seeds. I love poppy seeds.  In dressing, desserts, now waffles. I love them. Please mail, forward, fax, email, telegram me your favorite poppy seed recipes! I need them. 
Then add a 1/2 of a teaspoon of almond extract.  
Cook waffles as directed on whatever directions you are using. 
Serve with maple syrup (we use the less sugar Target brand--awesome stuff!)

Happy Waffle Saturday!
