On August 24, 1869, Cornelius Swartwout received the first U.S. patent for a waffle iron. Today we celebrate this delicious breakfast food as National Waffle Day. Whip up some healthy waffles using one of these recipes from Eating Well made with whole grains and topped with fruit. If you’re feeling indulgent, pair yours with ice cream or even fried chicken!
