Whether you live in a state without a Waffle House or just want to recreate their food at home, you can't have a copycat Waffle House meal without an at-home interpretation of their signature waffles. Our version uses pantry staples rather than a $15 bag of mix and comes together in 20 minutes. Serve with a side of Copycat Waffle House Hash Browns.
