Waffles are one of those breakfast dishes that always feel special. Whether you make them at home or order them out, there’s something comforting about a batch of light and crispy golden waffles. In my travels I’ve had the pleasure of eating out at a Waffle House, and my kids and I have always enjoyed the taste and texture of their waffles. I don’t live near a Waffle House, so I had to try my hand at making a this copycat Waffle House Pecan Waffle recipe. It tastes JUST like the real thing!
