Doesn't Look Like Much, but Tastes Wonderful, Wild Rice Pecan Waffle

Doesn't Look Like Much, but Tastes Wonderful, Wild Rice Pecan Waffle

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

Beat with electric mixer just until well mixed the first 8 ingredients.  Stir in Rice and Pecans and bake on a waffle iron.  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.   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.  Serve the waffles with butter and maple syrup or honey butter.  For honey butter mix equal amounts of slightly softened butter with honey.  Example, ½ cup butter, ½ cup honey.  Refrigerate leftover honey butter.
