Will it WAFFLE


#1

Continuing the discussion from How to make sourdough starter at home (because it is patently unfair to sourdough to veer off so badly):

This site is scary good.

I showed the following to my wife:

Waffled Cheese Squares

She basically intimated I must make this this weekend or speak to an attorney.

I’m definitely trying these - looks delicious and I love the idea of fresh churros without the deep fry.

As for the waffle’d cheese; brilliant. So many more fried nooks and crannies than with your average cheese stick or pan-fried cheese. I remember eating fried cheese in Rome a number of years ago (can’t remember the name of the dish - something like scaramazo) and it was delicious.

TLDR: I’m buying this cookbook.


#4

After seeing this cookbook, I bought a $20 waffle maker and made waffles with stuffing, then topped them with poached eggs, ham, and mornay sauce. It was fantastic and has been repeated.


#5

Mmmmm, debating whether I should buy the book or start my own waffling experiments from scratch.
I still need to try the Smitten Kitchen’s Latke Waffles recipe: http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2014/09/latke-waffles/

There are a lot of waffle recipes online.

Google is an amazing resource.

OTOH, a cookbook that folds flat is also an amazing resource.


#7

Excellent points!
I do enjoy a nice cookbook. No screen to get dirty, and it doesn’t go into power-save mode while you’re cooking.

Macaroni and Cheese Waffles


#9

I’ve also enjoyed microwaving frozen tater-tots, then dumping into a waffle-iron with mac-n-cheese.

Lazy awesome:


#11

At least 25 years ago I was watching The Frugal Gourmet and he brought out a waffle iron that made waffles with Queen Victoria’s head. I have been looking for one ever since, but no luck.

If anyone ever finds one I will pay a bounty plus shipping.


#12

That is a nice one.


#13

It works!

Not if you use Velveeta sauce and rotini. Ask me how I know.


#15

How about a savory waffle made with duck fat, then topped goose liver pate, shaved truffle, and a light lemon vinaigrette?


#16

Rosemary thyme waffle topped with tomatoes, a light fresh tomato sauce with lime zest, melted mozzarella, and a sprinkle of asiago.


#17

Risotto waffle topped with arugula, butter lettuce, and anchovies.


#18

Half masa, half flour waffle with sweet corn. Topped with carnitas and slathered in mole. Serve with chopped cilantro on the side.


#19

Banana bread batter waffles, butter, powdered sugar, and raspberry preserves.


#20

Sourdough waffles with raisins, topped with Greek yogurt and honey.
