It's hurricane season again, and somebody was praising Waffle House - with good reason.

So I thought I'd through in the Waffle House Index.

I live in Pennsylvania now. I miss the Waffle House.

This is useful information for the Guide smiley - ok Well found photo, too, thanks again to Carol M Highsmith smiley - ok

The only thing I wasn't fully clear about was the menu - it would be helpful to confirm that Waffle House serves waffles! The bit about the hash browns looks to be copied from the Waffle House Entry, but could perhaps be clearer about which code is for which topping.

Interesting about 'hash browns' - I would call those ones Rosti Potatoes, and what I call hash browns are the same sort of potato but compressed into a neat triangular prism shape smiley - ok

I think 'rösti potatoes' are just German hash browns. I wouldn't recommend trying the name on a Waffle House waitress. smiley - rofl The prisms are sold here, frozen, as 'hash brown triangles', but they are unworthy of the name, alas. The Oreida Company has much to answer for, even if their products are mostly gluten-free.

I did, indeed, copy the old entry's menu list for convenience's sake, but you asked for it, so you got it. The footnote now occupies its own zip code. smiley - zen

I was trying to make the entry about emergency planning and not gastrointestinal torture, but hey...whatever floats your boat. And hey - some hitchhiker might want to know. smiley - ok I would seriously advise against chili + sausage gravy...

About the spelling of 'chili': I am aware that the pepper is spelled with two ll's over there. But I don't know how you spell 'chili' as in, 'stew containing tomato sauce, hamburger, onions, and beans.' You can spell it to suit yourselves, but we spell it with one 'l'.

I am now heading off to the Hooverville parade - they're probably serving fried oreos over there - can you tell this area was settled by Scots people? smiley - run

Rösti are sometimes eaten with applesauce.

Great picture!

We have heard from relatives - they managed to escape the storm by evacuating, and now have power again. smiley - smiley

In US deli restaurants, particularly kosher ones, applesauce goes really well with potato pancakes (latkes). smiley - smiley
