If you are a certain age in Ireland, if you hear the word “waffles” you will break out into the corniest American Accent, singing accolades of a well known brand of potato waffles.
Which probably gets a little tiring for my kids…. but while we had copious amounts of waffle batter made up from a Sunday breakfast, I decided to try out some alternative toppings!
I decided to make savoury and sweet. And no, it’s not going to be another pancake parade. Thankfully.
250g Plain Flour
1 Teaspoon of Baking powder
20g Caster sugar
1 teaspoon of Salt
30ml Vegetable oil
Weigh all the dry ingredients, place in a large mixing bowl. Break the eggs into the milk and beat the mixture.
Add the egg and milk mixture to the dry ingredients. Add the oil and mix all ingredients together until all the large lumps have been broken up. Do not over mix otherwise the waffles will be heavy when cooked.
Chia Seeds and Yogurt Waffles-
In a bid to be healthy, and because Chia Bia are just down the road, this was the first one to try. With some soft fruit. So lots of Omega 3 into the diet. And some anti oxidents which is good news.
Secondly, with pizza toppings. A bit kitsch I know but my youngest loves waffles, and pizza, so it’s worth a try. Good Quality basil to tear on top and mozzarella are essential.
And last but not least, avocado and poached egg. As who doesn’t love avocado! (And I was in the enviably position of having two PERFECTLY RIPE ones!) This was, without a shadow of a doubt my absolute favourite. Of course the obligatory salt and pepper are an absolute must.
I have to say it was a great night’s eating! And of course, the youngest insisted on her own choice of toppings….
