Make your own whipped cream.

Avoid using sardines if you can help it.

peanut oil for a crispy edge. in the batter, not on the iron- clear butter for that.
 
2013-04-11 04:42:59 PM  
Put walnuts and mashed bananas in them. SO GOOD!

Yeah, make it a buffet and supply a couple of waffle makers and let them make their own; make the batter the night before; Put your attention into the topping---bowls of sliced fruit, different syrups, room temp butter. oh, and spray oil for the waffle iron.

If it's a big crowd rent a couple of chafing dishes to use to hold scrambled eggs, sausage, egg, bacon.

Have a bloody mary bar with bloody mary mix in a pitcher, vodka and rum, celery, pickled okra, cucumber spears, shrimp, olives, jack links, lemons/lime, horseradish, Worcester sauce, saucer of salt for salting the glasses and long skewers.

1. Be sure to add vanilla.
2. Add more milk than the recipie calls for (by 10% or so) and don't add the milk in until right before you put the batter on the grill.
3. Oil that grill like a motherfarker.
4. Assume you'll mess up a few waffles.  Increase recipie accordingly.
5. Spray the whipped cream right into the kids' mouths.  You'll be the cool grown-up.

What equipment have you got?
Already have a waffle iron?
 
2013-04-11 06:36:30 PM  
Oh dear god, you people don't know how to make waffles.

1 pkg yeast in 1/4 of warm milk. Let it bloom for about 20 minutes.

Mix 3 egg yolks, 3/4 cup melted butter and 1/4 cup milk. Add bloomed yeast, some salt, and some vanilla. Add 2.5 cups milk and 4 cups flour and mix.

Whip 3 egg whites until soft peaks, fold into batter.

Cover bowl with plastic wrap and stick in the fridge overnight.

Put in waffle maker, and eat.
 
2013-04-11 06:37:08 PM  
Oh yeah, sugar. Add that in with the salt and vanilla. 1/2 cup is good.

Softened butter, nothing worse than a waffle losing all its heat trying to melt butter.

/nothing.worse

Caramels, liquid smoke, whole sticks of butter.

CygnusDarius: Thirty people coming in, and I borrowed this for cooking. Not the same model, but similar:

Use of plenty of oil, raised waffles with yeast, vanilla, all good suggestions.  Let me also mention sourdough starter in raised waffles, if you're into sourdough.

Also, FWIW, I have read that old waffle irons make crisper waffles, because of their lack of a nonstick surface.  I found one in the thrift store, but did NOT notice any difference.  And the waffles stuck unless you used huge amounts of Pam.

Meanwhile, it's not easy to turn waffles into a Farkworthy topic, but here goes:

Lesbian Waffles Available In Russia:  english.pravda.ru/news/society/sex/20-09-2004/59339-0/


This is an old story, by the way.

Yeast raised are way better than baking powder.  Here:

Blueberry Eggos.

Put a little nutmeg in the batter.  And separate the eggs and whip the whites till stiff and fold into the batter with all the other stuff.

When my kid was younger and had sleepovers, we would have a waffle bar for breakfast with home made waffles and a variety of toppings, including but not limited to maple and/or chocolate syrup, jelly, butter, sliced strawberries or bananas, fresh whipped cream, ice cream, maraschino cherries and sprinkles.
 
2013-04-11 09:57:43 PM  
Whichever recipe you choose, be very aware of whether you're making Belgian or regular waffles. They are very different. Do not be fooled.

/I dig the yeast waffles, myself.

Normally, I'd agree with everyone making super dupper waffles for a couple of people. With slow yeast rise, sour cream additions, etc..etc.


But If I read the thread correctly it's for 30 people 'family'. Which means most would want old school stuff.
At best; you might 8 people that love the extra effort and appreciate the yeast waffles, the sour cream etc.
But you'll have 22 others that simply just want a bisquick mix, butter and syrup without any flourishes or embellishments.

So, don't treat it like a 'foodie' event for 30 family members--only a few would like it; stay with old school recipe..and offer toppings like fruits whipped cream etc.

Your biggest problem would be making waffles for 30 at the same time and storing them without them getting soggy. Thus the buffet option. or "Man" a waffle station at the event to make them hot on demand.

I know it's been said a few times, but it really needs to be emphasized:

Grease the heck out of the iron.

Even if it has a nonstick coating, it's not nearly nonstick enough. Just coat the thing thickly with Pam (or oil or whatever) between each waffle.
 
2013-04-12 12:53:13 AM  
Also, my favorite waffle recipe:

2 c flour
2 c buttermilk
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. cornmeal
 1 egg
1 tbsp. cooking oil

Stir together the dry ingredients. Add the wet ones all at once. Stir until mostly smooth (it will still be kinda lumpy), being sure the egg is thoroughly mixed in. Let stand 2 or 3 minutes, and then make waffles.

This. I'm actually working a little effort to get me a smaller waffler, but an extra one to make will make things faster. Since these things chug so much electricity, I'll also get some heavy duty cables as well.

If you're buying one, get one where you can take the plates out of it. It's so much easier to get out any stuck waffles and then to clean off when you're done.

James!: Make your own whipped cream.


And butter too.

You'll need multiple toasters to make those Leggos fast enough for that many people.

Get a waffle iron.  No one likes wrinkled waffles.

Based on the video you chose to link, I think you have the matter well in hand as it is.  Assuming you actually watch and listen to what is said in the video.
