Waffles without a waffle maker? No problem.

After a long string of eating out, I have not been cooking as much as I’d like to.  However, over the weekend, burgergal and I decided that it was time for pancakes.  Time for easy pancakes.  The type that you just add water to.

I know, not very b4b style, but hey, they are quick and tasty.

On this Saturday morning, however, I wanted something different.  I wanted waffles.  But I don’t have a waffle maker…

until now.

I do have a foreman grill.  And no, it’s not the fancy kind that has replaceable plates.  I just have an old school one that has not been used in around five years.  After a thorough washing, the only issue that existed was the slant of the plates.  An obvious fix was propping that bad boy up.

A measuring cup and a moist paper towel, done.  Now, a quick mix of Aunt Jemima complete pancake mix and a little oil, we were ready to go.

Thinking that the plates would be too close together if there weren’t any spacers, I rolled up some aluminum foil and put it on the sides.  I told you these were budget waffles.  I put the lid down, waited a few minutes, and then I had these.

After a few minutes between the plates of the Foreman, you have  an interestingly shaped, slightly shaped ruffled pancake.  But it TASTED like a waffle, and that is all that really matters.  With a little fresh maple syrup from Vermont, it was all good.  Try it next time you want to recreate a memory of Belgium.  Belgium, Wisconsin.

Look it up, it’s real.
