Every Thanksgiving, with my large family gathered around heaps of food, we can count on huge amounts of leftovers. I love waking up the day after to the aroma of my Dad’s hot waffles sizzling in his tiny little waffle-maker, and leftover turkey bubbling in rich gravy on the stove. Dad calls his turkey gravy and waffles his “breakfast of champions,” and I agree, but imagine what he could do with this champion waffle maker in place of the old small iron! Its non-stick design, combined with its steam-releasing capabilities, create light and fluffy, perfectly crisp waffles, every time. It has multiple settings to toast your waffle to the desired color, with a timer to alert you when it’s ready. Not to mention, I can bang out four hefty golden waffles in one go, all with deep grooves to catch the luscious turkey gravy. Looks like I might be in charge of Black Friday breakfast this year!
