What’s for Breakfast?  Hint, it’s National Waffle Week.  You got it; the first full week of September is National Waffle Week.  I don’t get to enjoy waffles too often, but when I do, I go all out.

For me, waffles are all about the combinations.  Here are my favorite waffle combinations: waffles topped with bananas and honey, my Cousin Doug’s blueberry waffles topped with fresh blueberries, strawberries & whipped cream, and Red Velvet Waffles with a cream cheese drizzle and chicken wings.

However, my favorite waffles come from the legendary Dame’s Chicken and Waffles in North Carolina.  If heaven had a taste, it would be the “Frizzled Fowl.”  This gets a chef’s kiss because it is a “panko-crusted chicken cutlet, a classic waffle, blueberry shmear, drizzled with almonds and plum sauce.”  If you ever in Cary, Greensboro, or Durham, North Carolina, be sure you stop by Dame’s Chicken and Waffles, it’s incredible.  Another favorite is the classic waffle with the orange-honeycomb shmear.  Trust me it is the bomb dot com.

I believe that waffles are better than pancakes because of Chicken and Waffles, enough said.  However, Popsugar Food provides us with more reasons why waffles are better than pancakes.  Here are the ten reasons why waffles are better than pancakes:

  • The square waffle texture allows for optimal topping storage.
