These waffles make a delicious breakfast on a cold Iowa morning. This is my father's original recipe, and I've used it all my life. I've handed it down to my seven children, and I'm sure they'll pass it on to their own children!
"My grandmother made these waffles in a waffle iron on a wood-burning stove," says Barbara Syme of Peoria, Arizona. "The crispy golden waffles are special to me because, 40 years ago, I served them to my husband the first night I cooked in our new house."
These healthful, good-tasting waffles are a tried-and-true family favorite—even with our two children. My husband and I have a small herd of beef cattle and some pigs. A hearty breakfast really gets us going! —Marna Heitz, Farley, Iowa
It was on a visit to my husband's relatives in Belgium that I was given this recipe. Back in the U.S., I served the waffles to his Belgian-born grandmother. She said they tasted just like home. Our grandkids love these waffles with any kind of topping: blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, fried apples, powdered sugar or whipped topping. —Rose Delemeester, St. Charles, Michigan
Meet the Cook: This is a nice recipe to whip up when you come home from church. I adapted it from one I saw in an old cookbook. It's a little different way to use herbs.

ON SATURDAYS, my mom and I always went shopping, but before we left, she made my favorite lunch, homemade waffles.
They were about 8 inches around and prepared in a grill set on top of the stove. Those waffles were so delicious!
