My entire childhood has been a lie. Okay, at least all the parts involving Eggo frozen waffles. As a kid, popping a waffle in the toaster was the definition of cooking myself a healthy breakfast on busy mornings before I ran off to school to play skip-it and four-square. Crispy and golden brown, I loved to top my waffles with maple syrup and butter with the occasional sprinkling of chocolate chips or fresh berries. Nowadays, when I purchase buttermilk waffles from the frozen foods section, I still pop them in the toaster, however the minute I saw this waffle hack, my entire outlook changed.
In a video from Odd Future, Tyler the Creator shows host Bonnie how to make the perfect waffle recipe for brunch without toasting it. Take a backseat homemade waffles and put away the waffle iron. This yummy breakfast is frozen food at its finest.
To make these homestyle waffles, slather both sides of your frozen waffle with butter. Place it in a pan and cook until golden brown on both sides. Tyler also likes to add a pinch of cinnamon to make it super delish. After a minute on each side the waffle is crispy and ready for syrup.
