Cornmeal buttermilk waffles are a breakfast lover’s treat! With the addition of cornmeal these savory buttermilk waffles are especially wonderful!
Son #1’s BFF is in town from his (fairly) newly transplanted home in North Carolina. As such, sleepovers are bound to be a frequent occurrence in the coming week–the first of which happened at our house last night. If there is one thing I’ve learned as a mother of four boys, it’s that when you already have so many, adding a couple of extra boys to the mix for a night or two is almost easier.
You heard me.
Having extra boys in the house just means that with any luck, they’ll keep each other entertained so that I might get a few minutes of peace and quiet.
Quiet time during waking hours is a rarity in this house, to say the least.
Such was the case this morning. The boys woke up earlier than I, so their breakfast consisted of day old scones, as they waited for me to get out of the shower so that I could make them a proper breakfast.
Around here, the fend-for-yourself-breakfast-while-mom-is-in-the-shower is called Round 1. Round 2 is the hot breakfast that I make afterward. What can I say? I have boys, and growing boys’ bellies are never full! If they don’t eat a hearty breakfast, I’ll be tripping over them in the kitchen all day long because they’ll be trolling for snacks.
So after Round 1, I shoo’d the slew of boys outside to–oh, I don’t know–run off some of their early morning energy, or build something, or I really didn’t care what. I just needed to be able to work in the kitchen without running into hungry young men looking at me like they hadn’t eaten in a month.
While they were out of the way, I commenced making cornmeal buttermilk waffles.
Well…in actuality, I commenced to reading the newspaper and sipping a cup of tea in peace. I just told the lot of them that I was making their waffles. Once my cup was drained and Section A was well perused, only then did I commence to making waffles.
With which I fed the Hungry Slew of Boys and tamed their rabid appetites. A couple of waffles into it, they proclaimed, “These are your best waffles EVER! You have to post them RIGHT NOW!“
And then they waited. Waited for me to get out my computer so that they could witness first-hand my typing up the recipe and starting a blog post.
Sometimes boys can be serious nags.
So at the insistence of the Sons Plus Some, I give you Cornmeal Buttermilk Waffles. Hearty, lightly-sweetened whole wheat waffles with the added crunch of cornmeal.
Cornmeal Buttermilk Waffles are the perfect hearty breakfast to tame even the most savage of growing-boy appetites.
