I made waffles!

I've made crème brûlée. I've made a German chocolate cake from scratch. I've made some culinarily challenging things in the fifteen-plus years that I've been cooking.

However, I had never made waffles prior to today. I got a waffle maker last year for Christmas, but have put off using it because I thought we were going to be moving into a house, and then we didn't, and so I decided today to unpack it and use it.

I used the recipe weetanya posted a little while back (I'd link to it, but I can't find it in your previous entries. I did look.) I was a little nervous, because it called for beating the egg whites into firm peaks, and I've had bad luck with that sort of thing before.

Well, I did it, by George. Those eggs peaked, baby, and did they ever! The waffles were delicious, and I have to give major props to my excellent Cuisinart WMR-CA waffle maker. I was fully expecting to have a sacrificial first waffle, but no - first to last, all were perfectly golden brown. Not a burnt one in the lot. Recipe made nine waffles.

I'm quite pleased with myself. The eggs actually did what they were supposed to do. Perhaps it was a holiday gift from a good Christmas spirit, but in any case, I'm happy.

I wonder if they'd stick if I mixed a little cheese and jalapeno into the batter?

This reminds me: I haven't made cornbread in ages. I should do that.

If your waffle iron is non-stick they'll probably still come off with cheese in them. The same way cheese comes off the Foreman grill. Spritz the iron with Pam or some olive oil before hand if you're worried.
