I have always loved pecan waffles and Emeril's version fits the bill. If I don't have pecans, I substitute ground oatmeal, which is great, too.

  1. In a mixing bowl combine flour, pecans, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  2. In another bowl beat the egg yolks and vanilla slightly.

Awesome waffles! They turned out extremely well. The only thing I changed is to use pasteurized egg whites instead of egg yolks and vegetable oil instead of melted butter as I have high cholesterol. I served them topped with dried fruit compote and fat-free vanilla yogurt which made for a satisfying breakfast.
