When it comes to breakfast, I will always choose savoury over sweet. This usually means I opt for bacon and eggs instead of pancakes and waffles, but the real solution is to put eggs on the pancakes and waffles, and by “eggs” I mean “caviar.”
Waffles are a most welcome breakfast, but they must be crispy to be worth your time (and mouth). To ensure you are serving and eating the crispest and tastiest of waffles, you have to properly pre-heat your waffle iron, and you can't just rely on the indicator light.
Real maple syrup is pretty perfect as is, but that doesn't mean it can't be jazzed up every once in a while. To add extra oomph to your pancakes and waffles, consider trying one of these delicious syrup infusions from The Kitchn.
