This is a recipe I got from my mom. I grew up with these waffles and my brother and I loved them. No sugar in this recipe, but who needs it with the added butter and syrup or powdered sugar. I am saving this for my personal cookbook.
My mom got this recipe years ago from someone she worked with...she made it at Christmas and holidays quite a bit. I have never made it, but I know it tastes yummy!! If you like alot of peanuts to candy ratio, use the whole 1 1/2 cups peanuts (or more if you like)...it's purely personal preference!
This appetizer is best made with fresh ravioli; not the frozen. I have used both the spinach and cheese ravioli and the all-cheese ravioli, but feel free to experiment on your own. This recipe is from Rachael Ray. You may want to double the recipe - it is so good!
This makes in one pan. Start on the stovetop and finish in the oven. So tender you can cut it with a fork. Gravy is excellent over mashed potatoes or egg noodles. Revision: Thanks to 3 KillerB's for pointing out some corrections that needed to be made to this recipe.
I've had this recipe for probably 20 years. We always let the kids pick dinner for their birthdays and all 5 of them pick this every year. I got this recipe out of one of James Beard's cookbooks and it is fantastic. Time does not reflect freezing time for the butter.
A few years ago, I asked Chef Raymond Reed from Stanley and Seaforts Restaurant in Tacoma, Washington for this recipe. I should have known that asking a chef for a recipe means it makes alot! The original recipe was for 15 pounds, but I finally scaled it down a bit. Since I don't make the huge 15 pounds, I don't bother with a paddle attachment either.
