Buttermilk Waffles

I am horrible about eating breakfast. Most days I just drink a cup of coffee and then nothing else until the middle of the afternoon. I haven't always been this way, before having kids I was great about sitting down and eating a healthy breakfast every morning. Since kids my morning eating habits haven't been as great. It seems that my two boys are following in my footsteps. It is horrible trying to get them to eat anything for breakfast. However, the one food that they will normally consistently eat is waffles. This is my quick and easy recipe for Buttermilk Waffles.

Beat two eggs well and add:
  • 2 cups Buttermilk
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 2 cup Flour
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 6 Tbsp Shortening
Beat well and cook on a hot waffle iron.

It's that easy, a quick way to get breakfast on the table with very little effort. My two boys love this recipe, I appreciate how little time it takes me to make breakfast. A great, simple waffle recipe!
