You can't talk about breakfast at Disney without mentioning the famous Mickey waffles. If you're on a Disney property and it's breakfast time, you can't avoid them... And who would want to? They're served at buffets, they're covered in fruit, chocolate, syrup, whipped cream, chocolate bits, cherries, M&M's... Sometimes all at once. They're a Disney institution, right on up there with Cinderella's Castle, fireworks, and waiting in line. Getting that first smell of fresh Mickey waffles while walking through the food court on the way to the buses... Somebody call Yankee Candle and tell them to put that smell into a candle.
Now if only Disney would share one of their Mickey-shaped waffle makers, I'd be in heaven. Yes, yes, I know they have Mickey-shaped waffle makers, but they're different. I can tell.
If you're wondering if beating the egg whites will make a difference, let me just tell you, yes, it does. In fact, I think the big secret to this waffle recipe is those stiff egg whites. While the waffles are certainly very good if you don't take that extra step, they will be denser, rise a little less, and will be noticeably less fluffy. Trust me, the extra work is worth the effort.
