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.

Belgian Waffles With Glazed Bananas
Bed and Breakfast Recipe

Makes 8 Waffles

Banana Sauce
3/4 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 bananas

Belgium Waffles
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups well shaken buttermilk
3/4 stick (6 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
2 large eggs
vegetable oil for waffle iron

To make sauce: Melt butter on low heat. Place the brown sugar in with the butter and watching the heat, melt the sugar down with the butter to make the sauce. Be careful not to boil or over cook the sugar, it with burn or crystallize. Chop the bananas into cubes and place into the sauce.

To make waffle batter: Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk together buttermilk, melted butter, and eggs in another bowl, then whisk into flour mixture until just combined.

Brush hot waffle iron lightly with vegetable oil and pour a slightly rounded 1/2 cup of batter into each waffle mold. Cook waffles according to griddle's manufacturer's instructions until golden and cooked through, about 3 minutes. Transfer as cooked to rack in oven to keep warm, keeping waffles in 1 layer to stay crisp.

To serve: Dust the plate with powdered sugar; place the waffle on plate and dust with sugar again. Top with a large spoonful of banana sauce.
