Gluten free Waffles
'Breakfast is the most important meal of the day...'
So they say, and my husband truly believes it. When he was first told he had celiac disease the part that upset him the most was that he didn't know what he was going to do about breakfast.
I started with pancakes, but that was easy, and really who can eat pancakes everyday? Seyfi also missed the crunch that the crust of a bread has, and pancakes do not have a crunch.
To break up the pancake monotony, I thought waffles and found and adjusted a recipe that makes that best, crunchiest waffles ever. You don't even realize that they are gluten free, they are so yummy.
Also, they are not sweet, so they can be used with both sweet and savoury breakfast dishes.
The trick, to making great waffles is to let them cook on both sides. To do this you need to flip over your waffle maker half way through the cooking. It makes all the difference!
