When it comes to food, I love to put a play on words and sometimes even mess with people's minds. There's a cereal that tastes like waffles(Waffle Crisp), there are frozen waffles, and then there are the Belgian-style waffles. This recipe combines all 3 components. It's just basically coating a frozen waffle in some waffle batter that happens to have Waffle Crisp cereal in it and then cooking it in a waffle iron.
I was expecting only to have enough batter to make 1 stuffed waffle but ultimately I had extra batter left over that I didn't want to go to waste, so I made 2 more stuffed waffles! My dad didn't appreciate me taking one of his precious Buttermilk Eggo Waffles though for the purposes of this video. We love our frozen waffles, which I eat for breakfast during the weekend(I have some sort of oatmeal or grits during the week with ingredients left over from previous videos).
It was uncanny to see the remnants of a frozen waffle inside the larger Belgian waffle, so I marked up the picture of it to show you guys there's a waffle inside another waffle! On the other hand, the Waffle Crisp cereal wasn't very visible and it tasted like moist, flattened cereal if I got a bit of it in a bite.
These are thick waffles that need to be coated with a glass of water or milk, plus they soak in maple syrup just like a Belgian waffle should!
Speaking of Belgian waffles, one of the fondest memories I have about my late mom was us going to Costco and me trying some Belgian waffle samples. That was my first introduction to this style of waffle and I was 8 at the time.
My dad liked these waffles as well. When I first told him about the idea, he was a bit confused as to where this idea was going but it all made sense to him once he saw me making the waffles.
Makes 3 stuffed waffles
You will need:
A large bowl
A waffle iron
For the waffles:
1 cup pancake/waffle mix(it can be used for either of these)
3/4 cup milk
2 tbsp. oil(I used olive oil)
1/4 cup Waffle Crisp cereal
3 frozen waffles
1. Mix the first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Coat 1 frozen waffle with the batter. Let the stuff in the bowl rest for 4-5 minutes while you heat up the waffle iron.
2. Once the waffle iron is heated up and it's been 4-5 minutes, grab the battered frozen waffle and quickly place it onto the waffle iron. Close the waffle iron and let the waffle cook for 2-3 minutes.
3. Once the waffle is done, take it out with a spatula.
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 for the remaining two frozen waffles(but cook each frozen waffle separately!).
5. Serve with maple syrup and butter. Bon appetit!
