Expert Tips for Making Holiday Eggnog Waffle Recipe:
These waffles don’t expand 50% like boxed mixes … so fill that waffle iron up!
The eggnog makes these a little more dense, so you want to make sure you cook these until there is no more steam.
The key to making sure your waffles don't stick is to preheat the waffle maker and don't forget to spray it well with cooking spray.
Waffles are always best when eaten fresh from the griddle so be sure to have all your toppings ready to go and let people get started digging in as soon as they are finish up.
Gently mix your waffle batter and stop mixing as soon as it's combined. Over mixing causes the gluten in the flour to stiffen up and you will end up with dense, tough waffles.
