We get a hankering for waffles every now and then. We enjoy having them for supper most of the time over breakfast. I grabbed the good old trusty Better Homes and Garden cookbook. This is one of the best overall cookbooks to keep in your pantry."Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book" cover with red and white checked table cloth type background.

As usual, I don’t follow directions. Instead of nasty old white flour, I used whole wheat.  Remember, you will need to add a little extra water when using whole wheat. The recipe also called for the eggs to be separated. If your gonna have both parts in the mix, why waste the time. It’s already gonna be heavy from using whole wheat flour.Picture of Waffle recipe.

Cindy soaked a cup of Thrive Life Freeze Dried Sausage Crumbles. Thrive Life freeze dried sausage crumbles and raspberries reconstituted in a bowl with a spoon in it.To this, I added about a half of a cup of Thrive Life Freezed Dried Raspberries. I then dumped this into the waffle batter.

The waffles were heavy, as was expected. You could smell the raspberries as the waffles cooked, but could not really taste them in the waffles. There was a very light sausage flavor.Raspberry Sausage Waffle batter in a bowl with spoon.

The waffle texture was good, and it was very flavorful. We used our freshly made peach butter to cover the waffles. Next time we will do the sausage mixed with Thrive Life Freezed Dried Mangos. That just sounds like a great combination.

If you do not have a copy of this cookbook, I recommend that you pick one up. I remember my mom having this cookbook when I was a kid. My mom gave Cindy our copy for a wedding shower over 35 years ago. We also gave a copy to our son and his wife when they got married.
