“Resembles Belgian waffles but easier, and moister than a pancake. I did not want to buy and store a separate waffle maker, so I use a George Foreman meat grill. It is also easier than making with a waffle maker. Tastes like Belgian waffles but easier to make. Good with syrup or whipped cream and fruit sauce or with a meal like gravy or cream sauce. Is handy when no access to stove.”
1 waffle

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup mrs butterworth's buttermilk pancake mix (other brand names are not as good)
  • 12-34 cup water (yes it is supposed to be thick, i am from wisconson so "belgium" waffles are somewhat soft and not a)
  • 1 -2 tablespoon vegetable oil (the best is olive oil, it cooks best and is the most healthy)
  • 1 teaspoon good for baking stick margarine (you only use a little so it's still healthy,do not use whipped or soft or diet and also do not use b)


  1. Change the angle on the George Foreman meat cooking grill so it is level not tilted any more (I used the small George Foreman grill-- the one that cooks approximately 4 hamburgers).
  2. Use the spare legs or the drain tray upside down or similar method.
  3. Preheat the grill 5 minutes--use a timer.
  4. Combine all ingredients except the margarine or pam like spray.
  5. Grease both sides of the grill lightly with margarine (do not use butter in the grill--it will burn black and smoke).
  6. Pour the entire batter gently into the grill; smooth carefully.
  7. Close the grill.
  8. Wait a minute more or less until steaming slows down or stops.
  9. Open the grill and test with a toothpick to see if done. If not done, close grill 10 to 30 seconds more.
  10. Open the grill and remove the tiger waffle.
  11. It will have golden brown and dark brown tiger stripes and be like a Belgian waffle but also a new taste and texture very moist.
  12. Good with syrup or hot fruit sauces or as part of a meal instead of potatoes or rice, pasta you know with a gravy or cream sauce.
