When you're gluten-free, breakfast is the most depressing meal of the day . . . unless you have a waffle iron. If you have a box of gluten-free Bisquick, you can make up your own flavor combinations, blending fruit compote in the mix, making your own syrups. We put a box of blueberries in a small pot with 1/4 cup honey and about the same amount of water. It takes about 20 minutes to boil; make sure the blueberry syrup isn't too thin or too thick. Pour some in the batter and add about 1/8 cup of honey to the batter to sweeten it. You'll need about 1 1/2 cups bisquick, 1 egg, 3 tbsp. butter, melted, or oil, and 1 1/2 cups milk. Add the egg to the flour first, then the butter, then the milk last. Get your waffle iron ready; pour the batter in the middle and leave for 5 minutes. Make your own homemade whipped cream with heavy cream in a bowl using a mixer; add some honey to the whipped cream to enhance the fruity waffles.
