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!

"I didn't make the topping, only the waffles. I separated the eggs and beat the egg whites until stiff...folding them into batter to make lighter waffles. Be sure to grease the iron, this recipe is lower in buter than others I've tried. Good flavor."
