If you make a small box of wild rice you will have some left. I divide it into baggies and freeze the leftover rice. It will make several recipes.
Ingredients
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ¾ cups milk
  • 5 ½ T of butter, melted
  • 2 T packed brown sugar
  • 4 t baking powder
  • 1 t vanilla
  • ¼ t salt
  • ¾ cup cold cooked wild rice
  • 1 cup chopped fine pecans
Instructions
  1. Beat with electric mixer just until well mixed the first 8 ingredients.
  2. Stir in Rice and Pecans and bake on a waffle iron.
  3. When you take the waffle off your waffle iron let it sit on a wire rack for 10-15 seconds before putting it on a plate. Helps keep them crisp.
  4. Serve the waffles with butter and maple syrup or honey butter.
  5. For honey butter mix equal amounts of slightly softened butter with honey. Example, ½ cup butter, ½ cup honey. Refrigerate leftover honey butter.
