Makeover Overnight Yeast Waffles

 Makeover Overnight Yeast Waffles
The revamped waffles have nearly 60% less fat and about 33% fewer calories. The two eggs called for in the original recipe were retained, but the whites were separated from the yolks. The yolks were added to the batter before it was refrigerated overnight. The egg whites were beaten and folded in the next day to help keep the fluffy interior and crispy exterior of these waffles.—Mary Balcomb
