My heritage is Norwegian on my Mom's side and German Mennonite on my Dad's side so my food loves can be a little mixed up. At Christmastime we usually have special foods from both. Lefse for the Norwegian in us and Peppernuts for the German Mennonite.
When we have waffles, my German Mennonite heritage insists that we have White Sauce to go on top. My kids love it, Hubby doesn't. It is kind of like a thin homemade vanilla pudding that is poured over the top of your waffles. Yum!!!
White Sauce for Waffles:
2 Cups Milk
1/3 c. sugar
2 T cornstarch mixed with a little water or milk to make a slurry
1 tsp. vanilla (unless its Monday morning, then you might need a little more☺)
dash of salt.
Bring milk, sugar, salt to boil. Whisk in cornstarch slurry until thickened. Take off heat and add vanilla. Serve over waffles.
