There is a food truck around town that serves the best yeast raised "Liege" Waffles. The thing about "Liege" Waffles is that the yeast dough (a dough, not a batter) takes hours and hours to make. If you're like me, you don't have time to spend hours making dough. This is a recipe that I came up with to copy the food truck liege waffles. The best thing about this recipe is that the dough is already made by Rhodes! My secret, to making them as close to liege waffles as possible, is to knead in some crushed sugar cubes into the thawed Rhodes dinner rolls. The original liege waffle recipe calls for "pearl sugar" which is a chunky sugar that melts and caramelizes into the waffles as they bake on the hot waffle iron. Pearl sugar is not always easy to find, plus, it's a bit pricey. Start by thawing the dinner rolls on the countertop until they come to room temperature. Crush 3 sugar cubes (per waffle) in a plastic bag. I just tapped them lightly with a rolling pin. The sugar should still be mostly chunky. Knead about 3 teaspoons of the chunky crushed sugar cubes into each thawed dinner roll. (It's okay if the bits of sugar are visible on the outside of the dough - in fact, it's a good thing.) Flatten each sugared dinner roll into a 4" circle and place on the pre-heated waffle iron that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Cook as usual on medium heat. (I know a 4" waffle sounds small, but they are packed with rich, delicious, flavor!) Close the lid and allow the waffle to bake on the waffle iron as usual. (By the way, your house will smell amazing!) When golden and cooked through, remove the waffle from the waffle iron and top with some Nutella, fresh sliced strawberries and a dollop of whipped cream. Another option is Cookie Butter and sliced bananas. (Of course, whipped cream too!) Your life will never be the same!

Thaw the dinner rolls in a plastic bag at room temperature until they have completely thawed. Place the sugar cubes in a plastic bag and crush them by tapping them gently with a rolling pin. (Large chunks about the size of peas are good!)
Knead 3 teaspoons of the crushed sugar into each dinner roll and flatten each into a 4” circle.
Spray waffle iron with non-stick spray and cook on medium heat as you would any other waffle. When golden, remove and serve hot with delicious toppings like Nutella and fresh sliced strawberries or Cookie butter and sliced bananas! (Oh, and don’t forget whipped cream on top!)
