Best Belgian Waffles Recipe
I have tried so many different ways to make a Belgian Waffles Recipe and never found one I loved. I made so many that had me sadly disappointed so I tossed in the towel on using other recipes friends had shared with me and got to work. It took a bit of time but it was well worth it because these Belgian waffles make it so much better since no where near my makes a good waffle.
For me it is important that I have an amazing Belgian waffle maker, seriously you need a good one. Spend the extra few bucks to get a good one, it is so worth it! It doesn’t matter if it is a square waffle maker or a round waffle maker, either one will work.
It is SUPER important that the belgian waffle is crispy on the outside but fluffy on the inside. If you don’t cook the waffles long enough you are going to end up with soggy waffles and that is just gross.

How to Make Waffles for a large group of people
If you are like me, when you are making waffles you have a bunch of people who are hungry at the same time. We all know that no one likes to eat cold waffles, so I use my little oven trick to keep everyone’s waffles warm so we can enjoy breakfast together.
Just place them on a wire rack in your oven at 200 degrees. Do NOT Stack them! This will keep them hot until everyone’s waffles are doing being made.

How to freeze Belgian Waffles
If you are looking for an awesome waffle recipe that you can freeze, this one is great. I like the make a double or a triple batch of these homemade Belgian waffles and then freeze them.
It is easy to freeze waffles. Let the waffles cool and then wrap each waffle individually with plastic wrap. Place wrapped waffles into a freezer bag and zip shut. Place waffles in the freezer. They will stay fresh for about 2 months in the freezer. However mine tend not to last that long because everyone eats them. LOL.
To cook your waffles from the freezer, just pop them in the toaster in the morning when you want to eat them.
