Liege Waffles

Yes(!), I saw that episode of Throwdown with Bobby Flay where he challenged the "Wafels & Dinges" man to a Belgian waffle throwdown. More specifically, they made liege waffles, which are Belgian sugar waffles. Bobby lost, which is really for the best, because otherwise I start to feel bad for the challenged person. Oh look I'm Bobby Flay and I'm better at the thing you've spent your entire life doing and I'm just trying for the first time... 

I ordered the imported Belgian pearl sugar, as well as the delicious Speculoos spread(out of stock until April 15), which is made from my favorite cookie. I've been slowly devouring the whole jar, but it's cool because I bought two.
I've only attempted liege waffles once, and they were definitely more of a dessert than a breakfast. I used the recipe below from the box of pearl sugar, so next time I will try another. They were really delicious, just not what I'm usually craving at breakfast. I topped ours with the speculoos and whipped cream, but you could do maple syrup and butter, or a fruit topping. Whatever you want. 1 waffle is really enough for 1 person... and coming from me that is saying a lot!

These waffles are really good. I normally don't care for waffles - but these were sweet and could double as a desert. The spread with whipped cream on them is really good. I can imagine it going really well with some vanilla ice cream.
