Pancakes or Waffles & What Goes With Them?

Waffles, if I have a choice. Pancakes kind of plop in my tummy and stay there, uncomfortably so. However, they are great for a crowd, as I can make them on my humongous griddle and keep them hot in the oven. I can make a lot more pancakes in much less time than waffles. I wish I had a humongous waffle maker!

Waffles can be big Belgians with fresh strawberries, powdered sugar and whipped cream.

Waffles can be hot and buttery with real maple syrup filling the grids. I like them crusty on the outside and still soft and hot on the inside. I like fruit on breakfast waffles, too - especially hot blueberry syrup with lots of whole blueberries. If I'm really, really hungry I like them with eggs and sausage and I wouldn't turn down a piece of bacon. A few orange segments would hit the spot and so would a bottomless cup of coffee. This breakfast is ideal for a weekend brunch, any night dinner, and late, late night after partying. I'd probably want a nap within a few hours. LOL

Boy, I can't remember the last time I had a really good waffle. My waffle iron only makes little ones, and it also makes a mess. Do you have a good one? Tell us about it?
