Extra Crispy Waffles

To make waffles extra-crispy, use any waffle recipe, then:
Beat egg whites separately, as if for meringue; set aside
When rest of the batter is prepared, then gently fold in the beaten egg
whites
Cook as usual

Fantastic Idea Kim~~~

I'll pass this on to my sister (who is the only member of the family who regularly makes waffles) :)

I agree! I bought my mom a waffle iron a few years ago, and she is now the Waffle Queen! She makes all sorts of waffles, even savory! She made one with bacon, onions, peppers, one time, and served with a light cheese sauce.... YUM! I will have to suggest this to her and see what new and exciting breakfasts she has to offer hahahaa!

I whip my whites to make pancakes too. Makes them nice and fluffy!

Around these parts, I'm the pancake king, no fooling. But though my wafles taste great, I have an absolutely miserable time getting them out of the waffle iron. The bottom comes up ok, but the top usually sticks like crazy.

I could use some help here all of you waffle pro's. I don't have as much problem when I'm making Belgian, yeast risen waffles. But when I make the more tender variety, using baking powder as the levening agent, they just pull apart while I'm trying to remove them.

Any foolproof help would be appreciated. And yes I do oil both the tip and bottom grids with cooking oil before adding the batter. And this is supposed to be non-stick. I wish I could find an old waffle iron with cast-iron grids, like my grandpa had. The waffles never stuck to the grids. I detest non-stick!

Goodweed-

I add melted butter to my wet ingredients (bit-o-brandy too). This solved my sticking problem.

Also, make sure that you waffle irons hetaing elements are working. I had an issue such as yours and it turned out to be a bad heating element.

I've been thinking about making some cornmeal waffles and serving chili over them. We almost always have cornbread with our chili so I thought this would be a little different. Has anyone ever tried it?
