Yeasted Brown-Butter Waffles Recipe | Bon Appetit

yeasted-brown-butter-wafflesThese are really good. Made them this morning. Convenient except for making the brown butter which actually isn’t too hard. You set the dough up the night before and add eggs and baking powder in the morning. Yummmm. Casteel Tested and Approved.

Being the thrifty soul that I am, I made my husband spaghetti and myzitha (a la Spaghetti Factory) and needed a use for the browned butter.

Once you make this yeasted brown-butter batter, all you need to do the next morning is plug in the waffle iron.
