Sour Cream Waffles

These waffles are dead simple and absolutely delicious!  

5 large eggs
1/2 cup sugar

1 cup  flour
1/2 tSP  salt

1 cup sour cream

4 tbls  butter, melted and cooled

vegetable oil or extra melted butter, for the waffle iron

berries and whipped cream optional.

Beat the eggs and sugar together for about 5 to 8 minutes. 

Combine the flour and salt. 
Add alternately into the batter half of the flour mixture. the sour cream, and finally the remaining flour mixture. 

Gently stir in the melted butter. Let the batter rest for 10 minutes before making waffles.

I recommend serving these with berries, but anything will be fine.

German French Toast with Applesauce

This recipe is pretty much just like I've always made French toast, and I'm quite amused that it is called German French Toast.  I serve my French toast with whatever people want.

3 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon plus 1 dash cinnamon, divided
Dash salt
3 tablespoons sugar
8 thickish slices of white bread
1 eight-ounce jar applesauce

In a small baking dish, whisk eggs, milk, vanilla, dash cinnamon, and salt until well blended.  Mix together the remaining cinnamon and the sugar. Set aside.
Dip each roll or slice of bread in egg mixture long enough to get quite moist, but not overly soggy. 
Fry over medium heat until bread starts to brown. Turn over to brown the other side.
Heat the applesauce.
Serve the French toast topped with warm applesauce and butter on the side.
