Sam's Sourdough Waffles


This sourdough waffle recipe is simple to remember and asks for minimal amounts of perishables, making it great for campouts or fundraising breakfasts. The waffles are crispy outside and super soft within. I got this recipe from a friend who used it to make fantastic sourdough pancakes: Thanks, Mr. Hannula!!
