Gobbled Regrets....

So Steve and I were walking around the grocery store the other day bored we didn't really need anything just killing time and well what do poor... er rather cheap skate foodies do for fun... we walk around grocery stores dreaming about thinking about and imagining food.... So we saw this Batter Blaster stuff... I had heard about this on a foodie blog i frequent... and was well intrigued somewhat disturbed and a little curious... so upon finding it at the store we thought well... why not we'll leave the hamburger in the freezer and make waffles for dinner... The Verdict.... Well $6 for one can that made 6 waffles that were mostly air and cooked so super fast they practically burned in my waffle iron were so tough we couldn't cut them with a fork and then had to saw with a knife... not so much... maybe its better for pancakes.. they didn't taste bad but for the money and the just weirdness about them... yeh i think i can probably make my waffle recipe for less than like $1 a batch... So if you want REAL waffles.... please enjoy my Dear Grandma Elwell's recipe... we sure do!
4 Eggs
4 tsp baking powder
2 c milk
2 c flour
1/4 c sugar
½ t salt
¼ + 2 T melted butter
Separate the egg yolks from the whites and reserve the whites. Mix the egg yolks with the remaining ingredients. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form and fold into batter. Ladle into a hot waffle iron and cook until the steaming stops. If you really wanna try Elwell Waffles the way they were meant to be tho.... cook some bacon in the waffle iron for a few minutes before you put the batter in... butter em up drizzle with syrup... Pray and Thank God for wonderful Grandma's who were such good cooks and enjoy!
