Earl Grey Belgian Waffles

These waffles. They’re everything. After trying countless waffle recipes out there, I have finally developed one that I am truly in love with. No joke, I have made these over and OVER again. It’s not a perfect waffle if you don’t get those light crispy edges with a soft fluffy interior. But I am finally proud to say this recipe combines the best of both worlds. The secret? Fluffy beaten egg whites.
