Waffle House Inc. operates a chain of about 1,400 Waffle House Restaurants located in 25 states. The restaurants, which are either company-owned or franchised, pride themselves on serving good food fast, at a reasonable price, in a diner atmosphere 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The menu includes everything from waffles and eggs to steaks and salads. Waffle House, according to information released in 1995 for the company's 40th anniversary, began as the dream of two neighbors, Joe Rogers, Sr., and Tom Forkner, who envisioned a company dedicated to both its customers and employees. The partners wanted to create a place where friends and neighbors could get together to enjoy good food served with a friendly smile. On Labor Day in 1955 they opened the first Waffle House restaurant in Avondale Estates, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta. The first Waffle House restaurant was a smash, and the owners soon opened other Waffle House eateries throughout Georgia.




Make Your Own Frozen Waffles

Make the waffles using all the batter, let them cool, then wrap them tightly in plastic wrap and freeze. You can then cook them later in the toaster, just like Eggo waffles! 

Waffle House Copycat Recipe

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 egg
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 tablespoons butter, softened
2 tablespoon shortening
1/2 cup half and half
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup buttermilk
3/4 teaspoon vanilla

Combine the flour, salt & baking soda in a bowl and stir to combine. In another, larger bowl, lightly beat the egg; add the sugar, butter and shortening. Mix well until smooth.
Add the half-and-half, milk, buttermilk and vanilla; mix well. While mixing, beat in the dry flour mixture and mix until combined; it's ok if the batter has some lumps.

Cover the batter and chill overnight for best results, but the batter CAN be used right away. If chilling overnight, let the batter warm up to room temperature for about 15-20 minutes before cooking.  Lightly oil the waffle iron and preheat; once hot, spoon about 1/3 - 1/2 cup of batter onto the iron.
