Saturday night saw Mike and I hard at work at the WWFC offices, researching our next potential cheese review. After many, long arduous seconds of scouring the Internet, we decided a snack would help us focus so I suggested cheese waffles. Now while most people automatically think of Belgian waffles, I’m particularly fond of Italian cheese waffles. Yup, Italian cheese waffles.
Here’s my super easy recipe for Italian cheese waffles :2 cups flour 4 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 eggs 1 1/2 cups milk 2 tablespoons melted butter 3/4 cups grated Mozzarella 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
Preheat your waffle iron. Sift all the dry ingredients. Beat the eggs in the milk and pour into the dry ingredients. Add the melted butter. Mix well. Fold in the cheeses and the basil. I use about 3 tablespoons of batter per waffle. Cook 3-4 minutes, or until golden.
See? Easy-peasey. And sooooo savoury! I wanted to take a picture of a stack of waffles, but with all the boys hovering around, there was no stack. The waffles barely had time to cool down before they were scarfed back.
As I was nearing the end of the batter, Mike suggested adding blueberries to the waffles. I was not keen on the idea, since I’m not a fan of mixing sweet and savoury items, but what the hell! Let’s live dangerously!
Then Mike declared that everything is better with chocolate and we should add chocolate chips to the waffles. Grudgingly, I did. Mike and the boys agreed that they were, indeed, better with chocolate. I couldn’t tell you, since I opted out of that taste test!
Just so you know, we never did figure out what cheese to review next 🙂
