Make your own waffles and have the leftovers ready for the toaster later in the week. !
I use both my stand and my hand mixer. If you don't have both, I would first beat the egg whites and transfer them to a bowl, then make the batter and fold in the egg whites.
The iron I use is a Villaware and I believe it was around $50.
Separate 3 Eggs, the whites in a clean bowl and the yolks into a stand mixer bowl. In stand mixer bowl, with the wire whip attachment, beat for 3 minutes on medium speed, 3 Egg Yolks, 1 Cup Milk, 3/4 Cup Buttermilk, 2 Tbls Sugar, 1/4 Cup Oil, 1 tsp Vanilla, 4 tsp Baking Powder, 1 tsp Kosher Salt and 1/4 tsp Cardamom. Add 1 1/2 Cups Flour and 1/2 Cup Old Fashioned Oats and beat til combined, scraping down the bowl, about 1 minute. Using a hand mixer, beat 3 Egg Whites with a pinch of salt, for a few minutes until soft peaks. This means when you remove the beaters, the peaks gently fall over. Fold Whites into the batter.
Heat Waffle Iron. When ready season both irons with spray Crisco. Cook Waffle to your desired doneness, the darker, the dryer. Serve with butter, Vermont Maple Syrup and fruit. For Syrup, call Kim at Therrien''s Sugar House, 802.257.4013. Fancy and Medium Amber are $12/Quart and $7/Pint!
