My family loves these waffles! They are requested often. I love them, too. They rank right up there with the fancy round waffles they serve you at Denny's. You know the ones all covered in strawberries and whipped cream? My old boyfriend used to call it the "Army Ant Special" and he made fun of me for ordering a plate of sugar for breakfast. Did I mention we broke up?
Anyway, I love these waffles, army ant style or otherwise.
Let's start with the eggs. You need four of them and you need to separate the whites from the yolks. I suggest that you put the whites directly into the bowl of your stand mixer (if you have one) or another large bowl that you can use with a hand mixer. You'll be beating these egg whites into soft peaks later.
In a medium sized bowl, combine your dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking powder). Forget to take a picture.
Add dry ingredients to the wet mixture and stir until just combined. Don't over mix it. You can see a few bubbles and lumps in there. You want that.
Now pour the batter onto your waffle iron.
