What better way to start a fresh cool autumn Saturday morning than with fresh baked buttermilk waffles? I just cannot think of one! Hopefully these tasty waffles will give us good luck on game day for our Fighting Irish, Sooners, Mustangs, and Blue Devils! All four teams actually won a few weeks ago! Bunker and I get to root for these teams because Bunker went to Notre Dame for undergrad and then Duke for grad school, and I went to OU for undergrad and SMU for grad school. It is always fun to see how they are doing all across the nation on football Saturdays.

I usually just break into a box of Bisquick for waffles, but today I decided to try Buttermilk Waffles, and indeed, they are worth the extra few minutes it takes to make them. I found this recipe in foodgawker (a really fun food site that compiles all delectable food images from across the blog world) and it comes from Three Many Cooks. I added two tablespoons of brown sugar, otherwise stayed true to the recipe.
Shafer and Jack!

1/2 teaspoon of salt

1. Gather all of your ingredients and begin to heat your waffle iron.

Oops...I almost always over-fill.
6. Let the waffle cook until it is a deep golden brown. This timing will vary depending on your waffle iron, so keep watch.
7. Enjoy with your favorite maple syrup while you watch the big game!
