Belgian vs. Traditional Waffle Irons
I am looking to buy a waffle iron and I have a question: is it necessary to use a recipe that is labeled "belgian waffle" in a belgian waffle iron? I have lots of waffle recipes but they aren't specifically belgian waffles, but I want the size/shape of a belgian waffle. So can I just get the belgian waffle iron and use my recipes or are belgian waffles somehow special (like a regular recipe wouldn't rise or fill it up right or something?)?
Hopefully my question is clear. Let me know if that didn't make sense.
