Oh soon as I throw away that seemingly worthless waffle maker...

I just made this for supper tonight and it was AMAZING! The heat was perfect. I also used ground turkey. The lean meat really tasted great with this sauce. It was so simple and I will definitely be making this often.

I made these this evening with ground turkey and and no sour cream. THEY TURNED OUT AWESOME! And my son enjoyed them as well!

I absolutely LOVE this recipe!!! TWO awesome recipies that go together beautifully! If you use 3 c. of plain all-purpose flour instead of the cornmeal, this makes great "plain" waffles-add a little vanilla to these & mmmmm! I use this recipe ALL THE TIME! Thank you Paula!! Judy Maike
