In honor of National Waffle Day, August 24th, I’ve decided to come up with a “best of the best” list for everything waffles. I hope you enjoy it and remember, no waffling around. LOL.
Best Waffle Recipe:
Sweet Potato Pecan Waffles with Praline Peaches. Loaded with pureed, rich sweet potatoes and pecans, topped with butter and out of this world peach sauce. Find it at allrecipes.com.
Best Waffle Topping:
Hands down, strawberries, bananas or peaches. Nothing like fresh fruit on golden delicious waffles. Oh, and can’t forget a dusting of powdered sugar for added bonus. Talk about heaven. FYI Chocolate, honey or pure maple syrup come a close second.
Best Waffle Song:
Don’t know any, but imagine it would be a syrupy love song. Get it, syrupy.
Largest Waffle Ever Made:
1986 in Chicago. It measured over 3000 square feet, larger than the average American home.
Most Waffles Eaten in 10 minutes:
In 2006, Joey Chestnut consumed 23 Waffle House waffles in 10 minutes to claim the title of World Waffle Eating Champion and broke his record of 18.5 waffles set from the previous year.
Best Waffle Quote:
“A waffle is just a pancake with a syrup trap.”—Mitch Hedberg, comedian.
Also, I like “He gave her a look that you could have poured on a waffle.”—Ring Lardner, writer.
That’s all for now.
