The Delicious Sauce You Never Thought To Add To Waffles

There's nothing quite like waking up to the smell of freshly-made waffles wafting through the air and taking that first crispy bite. The best part is that there are endless ways to enjoy your waffles, whether you're mixing chocolate into the batter or topping them with loads of healthy fruits. True breakfast food fiends will even find creative ways to savor waffles for every meal of the day. Let's be honest, those golden grids on a waffle's surface provide the perfect flavor pocket for whatever tasty toppings you can think of (via Insanely Good Recipes).

One of the most popular and classic ways to eat waffles is, of course, to drench them in your favorite syrup to deliver the ideal mouthful of sweetness. Some of the best waffle recipes come from family cookbooks that have been passed down for generations, but there is one special sauce that not all waffle lovers may have tried before.

What does waffle sauce taste like?

Generally referred to as "white sauce" or "waffle sauce," Mommy Moment explains that this traditional Mennonite recipe consists of a rich, creamy vanilla sauce that can be drizzled over waffles, French toast, or a stack of pancakes. It only requires a few common household ingredients to make this delicious sauce that will turn a common breakfast dish into something special. There are a few variations of the white sauce recipe you can try if you want to infuse your waffles with vanilla lusciousness.

Try sprinkling fresh nutmeg into your waffle sauce for an extra dash of flavor. "I started grating fresh nutmeg over my grandmother's waffles with waffle sauce years ago and ever since I've been grating nutmeg every chance I get" (via Barefeet in the Kitchen). Cinnamon might be a great addition, too, if you're feeling experimental. Whichever way you decide to create your heavenly waffle sauce, this is definitely a recipe you should try at least once!
