Gingerbread Belgian Waffles

I am a huge fan of all things ginger, tea, coffee, baked good, breakfast items. I even snack on crystallized ginger.  I used to visit a restaurant that made the most amazing gingerbread waffles, but we've moved too far from it to make it a regular stop now.

I have been craving those waffles for a few weeks, so I went searching the Taste of Home site for a recipe to try.  The only change I made to the recipe was to use a vinegar/whole milk substitution for the buttermilk. I had dried sliced ginger root and whole nutmeg so I grated those fresh, and wow, did my house smell amazing!

I'm not a big fan of having to whip the egg whites separately, just another bowl to wash, but it really is crucial to the texture of the waffles in most cases.  These are amazing either with the icing as listed or with real NH maple syrup.  I got 6 waffles, so I froze the extras for Christmas morning breakfast.

Thank you so much to Jannine F. for sharing her recipe! Do you have an amazing recipe you'd like to submit to Taste of Home? Follow this link and learn how! Want to apply to be a Volunteer Field Editor?  Check out the requirements and apply here
