Yield
Serves 1

The freezer aisle of your grocery store is stocked with a hearty selection of whole-grain toaster waffles that have less than 100 calories per serving. That's a low-calorie, grain-rich base for tasty combos that go way beyond butter and syrup. The fruity options are great, but we love savory ones, too.

How to Make It

Start with Van's Multigrain Belgian waffle. Add strawberries tossed in brown sugar, browned butter, and fresh basil leaves. Sprinkle with toasted sliced almonds.

My market only had 3 types of belgian waffles.  Thankfully I checked the calories before making these - they were 240 calories each!  Much more than the 100 calories the Van's supposedly have.  So I cut that in half before toasting.  I toasted the almonds in the sauce pan first and removed them.  Then added the butter to brown and just as it began to change color, I added the brown sugar and stirred that in, then added the berries.  The basil was interesting and not something I would've normally thought of putting on this type of dish, but it worked.  The flavors were great but the portion size was pretty small.  I'm going to have to expand my search for 100 calorie belgian waffles.
