Lagniappe: Sourdough Discard Waffles

For some time now I've been wanting to share a fantastic waffle recipe I found for sourdough discard.

Although it utilizes the discard, it doesn't have a sourdough taste. It has a slightly pleasant tang that my whole family loves.

Because I literally had only a Mickey Mouse waffle maker, I wanted to test it out on a Belgian style waffle maker first to make sure the texture was right.

I was able to try it this morning and had success. This recipe is excellent no matter what kind of waffle maker you have.

Because my starter is small, it doesn't generate the cup of discard called for in the recipe. I have halved the recipe with success, as well as saved discard in the fridge until I have enough.

The recipe also freezes well and reheats beautifully in the toaster.

I have also made the batter the day before, then stored in the fridge for use the next day.

My husband, Marty, was in sales when I met him. He was fond using the phrase, "Don't reinvent the wheel," when training people.

I could have tried to change this recipe to make it my own, but it makes one of the best waffles I've ever had exactly as is.

I hope you like it, too!

*I have included mix-ins, such as cheese, serrano peppers and chocolate chips with success.
