These Waffles With White Sauce recipes are from two very dear friends, Sue and Kathy. Once you have made the waffles (the batter can also be used for pancakes), you will never buy a mix again. They are simple and delicious. The recipe is from Sue’s Mom and is a Troeger favorite. The White Sauce is a childhood favorite of Kathy’s. She told me her Mom made it whenever they had waffles. It is a very old recipe passed down from the Mennonite Brethren. I have honestly never tasted anything like it on a waffle. It stays on the waffle, doesn’t sink in like syrup, has a great flavor, and is not too sweet. Delicious with blueberries.
