Waffles with Strawberry Ice-cream and Macerated Strawberries…
…the ultimate weekend brunch, lunch or dinner!
To make life easier, we used Urban Pantry Waffles because they are so good…
…but you can, of course, make your own!
The macerated strawberries give this dish a touch of tartness that balances the ice-cream beautifully.
