So you want a Wisconsin recipe but not something particularly odd. Perhaps something trendy like waffles. Not exactly party food, but yummy. Ok, once when in elementary school, my mother had a party for me and my classmates. A waffle party–with lots of toppings–fabulous fun and unique.
For an adult party, you could offer savory toppings or mix them in-exotic cheeses, meats, caviar, sauteed vegetables or a selection of jams and jellies you collected or created because they SOUND good but then you never end up using them because they don’t suit a sandwich or daily toast and preserves.
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2 egg yolks, lightly beaten
2 cups milk
4 tablespoons shortening, melted
1 egg white
jelly and scraped maple sugar
Sift flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar into a bowl, add yolks, milk, and shortening. Beat whites stiff and with the same beater beat first mixture until smooth and fold in egg whites last. Bake and spread with jelly and maple sugar, clap 2 waffle sections together to make a swell sandwich. Serves six.
