The Best Brown Butter Overnight Waffles Ever!


We’ve been making these brown butter overnight waffles for the past six years now and they never disappoint! I remember having them for the first time in a cabin in Tahoe with my family the day after Thanksgiving. They were the best waffles I had ever had, so we’ve been making them ever since! It’s a yeast waffle batter so the batter rises overnight, creating  crispy, chewy waffles! The brown butter adds so much flavor to the batter as well. If you’re making these for guests check out our waffle bar here. I also make them for Christmas too!
