Make your Christmas breakfast special with these Gingerbread waffles. Buttermilk waffle batter is spiced with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, brown sugar, and cloves. The eggs are separated and the egg whites beaten until stiff to help lighten the batter. Serve the waffles hot with butter and maple syrup. To keep the waffles warm until serving, set on a wire rack on baking sheet and place in oven on lowest setting.
My mom gave us her Mickey Mouse Waffle Iron recently. Evan loves his Mickey Mouse waffles. She bought the waffle iron over 20 years ago and it is no longer available, but there is a newer version on Amazon: Disney DCM-1 Classic Mickey Waffle Maker, Brushed Stainless Steel. The shape is a little different. The newer waffle iron creates more flattened waffles. You can also make these in a traditional waffle iron and cut them out to shape them into gingerbread men like my friend Lauren did with her Gingerbread Waffles.
