Years ago, my grandson requested a special dish to be included in his class cookbook, and this is the recipe I gave him. It was his favorite whenever he ate at our house, so he was delighted.
I often still serve it as a side dish - it's a good complement to any entree.

These toasty breakfast muffins give Deborah Flora of Sawyer, Kansas a jump start on brisk autumn mornings. “I make the egg salad ahead of time, then assemble them as needed,” she says. “They're also good with bacon or ham.”
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!
