    Curious to see if anyone has a good way to make waffles while camping... I know I could always cheat & use toaster waffles on my stovetop toaster but....

    I buy the pre made waffles from Piggly Wiggly, usually the blueberry ones, They do not cost much and there is no mess or fuss.

    We have one of those in ezakoske's first link, works fine on pups stovetop, on our Coleman stove, on our Blackstone griddle, or on a fire, but the handles are a bit short for the fire. Generally we use the Coleman stove, as I don't like to cook inside the pup. I't just the wife & me, so the single circular one works fine. If you're feeding a family, I would go for the double ones

    I recently purchased the Rome Waffle Iron (6-3/4" diameter). I've used it twice. Both times on our gas range. I wanted to test the recipe below and learn how to make waffles. I also re-seasoned it per the Cast Iron Fanatic's method using Crisco. Over-all, it makes excellent waffles. However, the best part is the recipe Rome included with waffle iron which is really very good.

    2 cups flour
    1-1/4 cup milk
    3/4 stick butter melted
    2 eggs
    2 tablespoon sugar
    1/4 teaspoon salt

    Mix dry ingredients together (flour, salt, sugar). Separate egg yolks from white and whisk into dry ingredients along with milk until batter has a uniform (not lumpy) consistency. Add melted butter to batter. Whisk egg whites until stiff and mix into batter.

    Preheat waffle iron over medium heat. Spray oil or butter on griddle. Slowly pour batter onto one side of waffle iron. Use a wooden spatula if needed to get batter evenly distributed. Although there should be enough butter in the recipe to keep the waffles from sticking, you should apply a small amount of oil (canola or non-stick spray) to the waffle iron before making the first waffle. Cook about 3 minutes and then check for doneness.

    Note - I started with too much oil both sides and I leaked quite a bit onto the stove. I was closing the lid too slowly. I reduced the oil on both sides and learned to close the lid faster.

    We have "Happy Camper Breakfast" first morning of the trip. A long time ago we received two mickey waffle makers and since we camp at fort wilderness a lot, just kept the tradition on all trips. https://www.amazon.com/Disney-DCM-9-Mickey-Waffle-Maker/dp/B00QHUT7MO

    We like the krusteaz brand mix. We recreate the fruit waffle you can buy at liberty square at Magic Kingdom--waffle with nutella, blueberries, strawberries and whipped cream (we have can of whipped cream for the whole trip). Also throw a pack of thick bacon on the griddle. Yum and kids look forward to it!

    We also leave the waffle irons in the camper so it's always special.

    Ha! Growing up, my brother & I referred to it as "krusty-azz"... I do agree they make very good products and now I look for it by name.
