celebratory waffles

Do you want the recipe for the best waffles ever (as long as you remember to start them the night before)?

Okay, here you go:

3/4 teaspoon yeast
3 cups flour
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups milk
12 tablespoons butter (worth it, promise!)
3/4 teaspoon vanilla
3 eggs, separated

Before going to bed, combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Stir in milk, butter, and vanilla. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside overnight.

In the morning, separate the eggs and stir the yolks into the batter. Beat the whites until they hold soft peaks, and then fold gently into the batter. Pour into a hot waffle maker until brown and crispy. Enjoy with maple syrup.

These waffles are super delicious on the first day, but even better if you freeze the leftovers and toast them throughout the week.

Do you want to know the most thrilling part about these waffles? I recently found an old Toastmaster waffle iron at a yard sale, and it's exactly like the one your grandma had when you were little: really heavy, makes 4 waffles at a time, gets unbelievably hot, and is completely encased in metal. It's like our own personal Cornballer.

This is exactly what every birthday, Father's Day, and Christmas morning sounds like:

HA! I really love Arrested Development.
