The Tragedy of a Nation Divided

NOOOOOOOOO, I don't mean Trump supporters vs Trump resisters! I mean something much, much more serious!


Are you on Team Waffle or Team Pancake?


Is this your attitude to the whole issue?


Or this?


What, exactly, is your position on syrup? Does it reveal where your true sympathies lie?


Okay, here's the real test of loyalty. Cue the pancake porn!


Or maybe hardcore waffle porn is more your style?


Are you a pushover for waffles?


Or do you hold out for the good stuff?


Oh yeah, baby, yeah!


Don't be fooled, my friends. There is a powerful secret organization pushing the Waffle Agenda!


They want you to believe all their waffle propaganda!


But don't be taken in! I'm here to tell you the truth! THE TRUTH!

WAFFLES with REAL maple syrup from canada and pecans mixed into the waffle batter. bliss on a plate!

DEZMOND said...

I'd do waffles if you can make them savoury for me with melted cheese on top, thank you very much, I never had a sweet tooth, just the sweet personality :)))

Mark said...

The solution to the problem is, of course, why not both?

jaz@octoberfarm said...

i'm with dezmond.....i don't like either. but with herbs and cheese, i would rethink it!

Bob Slatten said...

I am pancakes.
No syrup.
Either good quality Apple Butter, and just butter and cinnamon.

Rise up against the waffle!

Adam said...

I think waffles are better but pancakes are cheaper

MrsDuncanMahogany said...

I never pick sides...I eat both. With much joy and maple syrup! :)

Chorizo breakfast burrito. Wait, what was the question?

Janie Junebug said...

I like the pancake porn. Very much.

Love,

Missy George said...

Every now and then I get hungry for waffles..Some restaurants don't even make them..I had a chicken and waffles sandwich drizzled with maple syrup the other night at a pretty high end restaurant..Yum..Have a good weekend..

Leeanna Henderson said...

I want that pancake porn. Yeah baby! Give me my blueberry whole wheat pancakes every day.

Professor Chaos said...

I love them both. I wa,t waffles much more often because I love in the land of Waffle House Where you can get pecan waffles at a de ent price. I never get how in most restaurants a single waffle costs as much or more than a stack of pancakes.

mistress maddie said...

I am definitely more pancakes, then waffles. Unless Chris Evans is feeding me, then who the hell cares!!!

The Happy Whisk said...

Hahahahahaahah, being a waffle, pancake and French toast girl as well, this blog had me grinning from ear to ear. I loved it. Loved it.

Willym said...

I'm sorry but what exactly is the dilemma here? Waffles of course!

Birdie said...

Waffles. Always.

Jono said...

i I love them both, but only with real maple syrup. I worked at a pancake restaurant about 45 years ago. I lost 25 pounds in 5 months and couldn't look at a pancake (or waffle) for about 5 years until therapy got me back on track. Now I love them like a father loves a prodigal son. I like all the versions of both pancakes and waffles that I have ever eaten.

Jim said...

PANCAKES! ....with REAL MAPLE SYRUP!! Blueberries in them of on top!....I'm not fussy.

Lowcarb team member said...

I just love low carb pancakes any day or week of the year!

All the best Jan

Marie Smith said...

I'm team George.

bj said...

haahhaa...it always makes me feel good when I read one of your delightful posts...
I could eat either one day and night ...for every meal...and I just was sitting here at 8:30 pm, wondering what I wanted for dinner...buttermilk waffles with thick, peppered bacon...and coffee....xo

Plowing Through Life (Martha) said...

A little of each, please. And some fresh fruit on the side, too. Preferably some watermelon. Thanks :)

Jennifer said...

PANCAKES. With real butter and real maple syrup. Heaven.

Miss Val's Creations said...

A subject I have always been torn on. Recently out for breakfast I almost ordered pancakes, but at the last minute changed my mind to waffles. The decision was not regretted.

Magaly Guerrero said...

I hope you know that I will never be able to eat a waffle again... without thinking about abs.

AntiquityTravelers said...

There is a Waffle Association? who knew? for me ... it depends on if I'm making or eating. If I'm making, then it is waffles (I love my Belgium iron!) but if I'm eating ... then absolutely pancakes! I like them with butter and jam then folded in half like a quesadilla. Yea, it's the weird Scandinavian in me

JACKIESUE said...

I love both..but since I'm limited to amount ..I will go for waffles every time.

Gia said...

Oh god, that food looks freaking delicious.

G. B. Miller said...

This should end the discussion, eh? :D

Ol'Buzzard said...

Anne Johnson said...

I don't know how widespread the custom is, but where I grew up we would put chicken and gravy on waffles. Oh by all the Gods, what a treat! Of course I also love waffles with maple syrup, preferably REAL syrup from Canada or Vermont.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ G.B. Miller -- I should have KNOWN that Weird Al Yankovic would have the last word on the subject!

@ Anne Johnson -- You'll never guess what! For the last couple of years, chicken 'n waffles is one of the cool "in" dishes in some better Canadian restaurants. Does this count as cultural appropriation?

strangelynaked.com said...

"Waffles are just pancakes with abs?" Huh. I always thought waffles were more just pancakes with the same scarring that the singer Seal has.

Lynn said...

I'm on Team Pancake - so much easier to make. And so good with maple syrup. And butter. Yum.

Rain said...

I'm with George Carlin, BUT...only because I don't have a waffle maker lol...but Debra, what about crepes??? I have to take the independent vote of crepes on this one...though pancakes are so fluffy and yummy. :)

Francie M said...

Had a lot of fun going thru these, about feacebook on a scale of one to bizarre rule books! Hope all is well, must get back at it one of these days!

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

Haha. George Carlin in all his brilliance.

I choice waffles, but only if I get to make them myself in one of those fabulous waffle makers that hotels/motels have.

Have a great week, Deb.

Guillaume said...

It's difficult to find truly good waffles. Decent pancakes are much easier to find, even though I am rubbish at making them.

Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness said...

I refuse to choose because the choice is artificial. I can have both. Now I want a pancake and waffle sammich.

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

I'll have French Toast please - a little butter to dip each bite in - now that's heaven.

baili said...

oh my you are very good at your promoting job.
i am confused with your brilliance here .
laughter is springing around my stomach hahaha

Magic Love Crow said...

I have to admit waffles are my thing, but I do love french toast too!

SmitoniusAndSonata said...

Oatmeal.

Fundy Blue said...

I'm definitely for buttermilk pancakes and real maple syrup ~ Hard to beat!

The Captain said...

It's all alien to me. Pancakes are savoury in my world and waffles are made from potato.

Barbara said...

Hahaha. Waffles with thick syrup.
