Wild Rice Pecan Waffles

My mother found this recipe and shared it with me. It has become a favorite of my family's - especially when the waffles are served with my dad's homemade maple syrup.

    My husband and I really enjoyed these hearty waffles! Instead of serving them with pure maple syrup, I served them with my homemade blackberry syrup. The fruity flavor complimented the waffles nicely! I used my Presto Flip Side Belgian Waffle Maker which made 3 large waffles.
