I love waffles. But they seem so much more work than pancakes. If I'm going out for breakfast or brunch, I'll consider ordering a waffle. I'm not sure if we even have a waffle iron at home. We used to, but given the fact that we didn't use it that much, I'm pretty certain my wife put it in one of her yard sales for a $1.00 or $2.00.

So my question to you is this... Would you rather eat pancakes or a waffle? Please take the poll and let us know!
