chicken and waffles
Every day there seems to be some new food holiday. Don't get me wrong, I love any reason to celebrate all things food, but some of these holidays seem a little out there. For instance, did you know there was a whole holiday dedicated to celebrating chop suey?
Some of these holidays are actually meant to call attention to our eating habits, such as world vegan day which hopefully makes people take stock of what they're consuming on a daily bases. This Saturday however is meant to call all of our attention to sweet, buttery sticky-sweet waffles. Arguably one of the absolute best breakfast inventions of all time.
The best thing about waffles is undoubtedly how personalized they are. They can be fluffy or thin, savory or sweet, hot or cold. It doesn't matter at all it's all about what your own personal tastes. As we roll into the weekend, here are two of our absolute favorite waffle recipes that are sure to make Saturday morning breakfast infinitely more enjoyable.
This buttermilk waffle recipe is a classic that's impossible to mess up. Here a cast-iron waffle iron makes the difference between good and great waffles by giving them a crispy exterior with a soft interior. The key here is to be sure not to overwork the batter so the waffles don’t end up tough.

Chicken and Waffles
What’s better than homemade waffles? Homemade waffles topped with crisp cast iron fried chicken, of course. This Southern comfort classic will take some time, of course, but your effort will be well worth when it comes time for serving. We like to serve this dish with maple syrup and Texas Pete hot sauce.
