Celebrate National Waffle Day with these Simply Delicious Campground Waffle Recipes


Monday, August 24th is #NationalWaffleDay, so get your waffle maker and syrup ready. This delicious holiday commemorates the anniversary of the first waffle iron patent issued in the late ’60s. While the waffle iron is said to have originated in the Low Countries and Netherlands specifically during the 14th century, it was on August 24, 1869 that Cornelius Swarthout received the US patent for an improvement in waffle irons. This new design consisted of a handle for opening and closing as well as a turning element for a stovetop waffle iron.

Today we celebrate National Waffle Day by bringing you a few of our favorite waffle recipes easily made in the wild on your RV trips. We’re certain Leslie Knope would approve, so long as you top your waffles with whipped cream of course! Be sure to treat yourself with these easy and delectable recipes on Monday to participate in National Waffle Day! Enjoy the details on all things waffles below.

Oh, the Belgian waffle. You may be wondering, “what is the difference between a Belgian waffle and a regular old waffle?” This answer is two parts. The Belgian waffle is made with a leaving agent or egg whites to make the batter light and fluffy. It is then cooked in a Belgian waffle maker, which is ticker and often larger than regular waffles as the waffle iron has deeper grids. We found this delicious and easy recipe on
