File this under probably unhealthy, but delicious.
Sugar, lots of sugar
Butter (I used the real stuff)
Spread some butter on the waffles.
I used frozen waffles, and didn't bother defrosting. But I don't think it matters whether they're frozen or defrosted.
Put a pan on the stove, and turn the heat up high. VERY high. I set it about as high as it would go. Add a little bit of butter, just to be thorough with the buttery goodness.
Once the butter in the pan has melted, add the waffles and put some sugar on top of them.
When you flip them over, add some more sugar. I added some sugar a few more times.
Hey, there is a very good reason I call these sugar waffles.
The sugar will start to brown. Once this begins, it won't take much time for them to be finished. You'll also have to keep a close eye on them because they can go from nicely browned to overdone very quickly.
|Beginning to brown -- pure eye candy at this stage|
It'll be done when there's a decent amount of brown on both sides of the waffles.
...and the sugary goodness is ready to be enjoyed!
- Be sure that you soak the pan and plates afterwards. The browned sugar likes to stick to things, and can be a pain to cleanup if it hasn't been soaked properly.
- The waffles sometimes like to stick to the plates, which can make eating them...interesting. One way to avoid this is by lifting the waffles off the plate immediately after putting them on, and then setting them back down again.
- If you're more of a bagels person than a waffles person, try this with bagels.
EDIT 1/23/2013: I just have to add this pic of sugar bagels. :)
