It is Waffle Day in Sweden today. So I made Swedish waffles, both the crispy and egg ones. The recipes and more information is at http://www.swedishfood.com/swedish-food-recipes-desserts/93-waffles
The waffle iron I have was given to me by my grandparents at my college graduation. The photo above is of me on the flat bed of my old Ford truck opening the present. As you can see below, it is showing its age, but it still works.
I made the waffles while streaming Legends of Country on KORD. It has great old country songs every Sunday from 7-10. I made the egg waffle batter first and had it sit in the fridge while I cooked the crisp ones. I got the toppings ready while I waited.
The crispy waffles were a struggle because they stuck. Butter did not help, but our own lard did.
The egg waffles were easier to cook but definitely eggy.
Below are my waffles with crispy ones on the left and egg ones in the right. The crisp ones did not hold our maple syrup well but did fine with the lingonberry preserves. It was all good and decadent for a relaxing Sunday morning.
So Happy Waffle Day to you all!
