Holiday Waffles


"This is a recipe that I have used for years. If you are concerned about too much oil you might want to try cutting back a little on the oil. I don't make waffles that much so I don't worry about it! Add couple drops of food coloring to the batter. Red and green food colors for the holidays. Orange for Halloween, pink and red for Valentine's Day, green for St. Patrick's Day, red and blue for Fourth of July, Memorial Day and Labor day! Optional, dust with confectioners powdered sugar. "

I added 2 cups of mixed berries and 1/4 cup of potato starch and made them as pancakes on the griddle! Delicious! No syrup needed :)
