I’ve been totally freaking over waffles lately. They’re all I want to eat. Like, all the time.
I want waffles for breakfast and waffles for dinner. I want waffles for dessert and waffles at midnight, when I should be sleeping instead of thinking about waffles.
This is a hard obsession to obsess about, when you’ve gone and given up gluten, beans, flours, and other stuffs that tend to make good waffles. Paleo breakfast foods typically use a magical combination of fibrous bananas and eggs to make crepes and pancakes. But put that batter into a waffle pan and you’ve just got a bubbly mess.
At least, that’s what happened until I discovered two paleo-fabulous finds at Harmons this week. (Mantra break: Forgive me Father, for I am just now coming to appreciate my local Harmons for the gourmet grocery goodness that it harbors inside).
So, this pan. This NordicWare Silver Dollar Waffle Griddle now makes waffles simple, easy, and in totally perfect sizes. When I say I want a waffle, I don’t really want a whole, goddamned waffle. I just want three bites. Three bites of nom, three bites of syrup. And in proper cases, three bites of bacon.
Most waffle irons are too big to give me what I want. They’re just behemoths in the world of breakfast food. And thus I’ve left my waffle iron withered and lonely in the back pantry for sometime now.
But this pan officially changes everything. It heats evenly, makes teeny waffles, and stored itself simply with my other pans. (Mantra break: Oh, Silver Dollar Waffle Griddle, j’adore.)
