I used whole milk, it's what we always have on hand. I used my belgian waffle maker, and got 2 waffles. Next time I'd double the recipe. I love the nutmeg flavor, it worked well with some real NH maple syrup. I plan on making these again for our Christmas Eve breakfast.

These were amazing! The aroma, while cooking, definitely made me think of fall and the good foods we all enjoy at this time of year. This will definitely be a keeper at my house. I really appreciate that these can be frozen and reheated in the toaster on a busy morning. Thank you, James, for sharing this wonderful recipe with TOH readers.

I added extra eggs to the recipe, because one seemed to be too little. Perhaps that threw off the quantities, but something seemed wrong--the waffles were quite tough.

These were yummy, but my family said that it wasn't a keeper.

these are a favorite in our house I make several batches at one time and freeze the rest for a quick breadfast in the mornings

to redo it I would separate the egg and add one more egg white, then beat the egg white and fold in after the rest of the ingredients. It was just too heavy

Great low fat waffle, easy to make and tasty to eat. All of our kids enjoyed them too! I substituted the oil with applesauce to save on a little more fat!

These were not good. Dry, no flavor. Needed sugar or something. Not sure. Will not make again.

family loved them :) I did add 3TBLS of brown sugar to the batter before making.

I added about 1/4 cup of brown sugar to the recipe which helped give it some more flavor. I also substituted unsweetened applesauce for the oil.
