Waffles with carmelized apples and Black Forest ham. The apples are New York State macintosh from Terrance Mountain Orchard in Middleburg. I core, peel and chop the apples. Then they are tossed into a pot with brown sugar, maple bourbon and a little water. They get cooked over a low heat until a nice syrup startes to form. I cheated a bit here using me favorite frozen waffles, Aunt Jamima straight from the toaster oven. A little butter is applied then i spoon on the apples. You can kick up the ‘Autumn ‘ factor by sprinkling a little cinnamon sugar over these.
Now, I like mine with a side of meat. In this case I pan fried a nice thick piece of black Forest Ham. I pick this up at the deli counter when it’s on sale. I ask the clerk to slice it thick adding that he should get only four slices on the half pound. That’s usually a good thickness to use for breakfast. And you can get a weeks worth of breakfasts out of that.
