Tasty Tuesday-Hobo Waffles

Toni Nelson lived close to a railroad where many transient, homeless people would stop to finish off her grandmother's breakfast leftovers. In her memoir, A Beggar's Purse she says, "I had grown so accustomed to the weary travelers arriving at our back door for food that I hardly ever noticed that they were even there." (p. 29) These homemade waffles are simple to make and cost very little. Make a double batch and feed a crowd.

Hobo Waffles
1 stick butter (4 oz.)
2 cups flour
1/8 C. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 T. baking powder
3 eggs, separated
2 cups milk or 1 c. buttermilk / 1 c. milk
1 tsp vanilla

In a bowl place one stick butter and melt in microwave until nearly melted. Cool, add baking powder, salt, milk, egg yolks; stir.

Add flour and beat briefly with a hand mixer or whisk. Stir in vanilla.

Beat the egg whites, gradually adding the sugar until soft, foamy stiff peaks form. Fold into batter and bake in waffle iron about 4 minutes or until steaming stops and waffles are golden brown.
