How Do You Say Cheese Waffles In Italian?

wine and laptop computers

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

Or you could just dump it all in the bowl and stir. Not that I do that. Ever.

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.


Ok, so maybe it was more like 3 HEAPING tablespoons. Or 4. Whatev.

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.

Would you put blueberries on pizza? No. No, you wouldn't.

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

    We don’t mix sweets and savoury either but McDonald’s do. I like wwfc office. You and Mike look very serious in that photo.ย 

  • Yet another reason I would marry you, Nicky. ย 

  • ย Ugh! I am NOT a McDonald’s fan! Our offices are extremely homey, aren’t they? Mike and I look very serious because we are very serious people when it comes to cheese. And shoes. Well, the shoes is mostly me. Mostly. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • SP

    I go to McDonalds for nutritious food like French fries. Very homey… Shoes and cheese are a good food combination ๐Ÿ™‚ little leathery…

  • Ready when you are Jayne! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Welcome Binky! It *is* very, very good! And versatile. You can change up the cheese and the herbs to get a completely different flavour. For example, you could use a sharp Cheddar and tarragon, or Swiss and fine herbs. Yum!!

  • I would never have thought about putting cheese in waffles.ย  I make basic waffles with a dash of cinnamon every Sunday morning.ย  Cheese waffles sound like a good lunch item.

  • Cheese can be added to almost anything ๐Ÿ™‚ They are great for lunch, or a late night snack! Your cinnamon waffles sound good too….have you ever added apples, as well?

  • yana Koh

    looks delicious

  • No, but I have tried blueberries, which are actually better in pancakes. ย  They get too squished in the waffle iron.

  • That looks wonderful and beats my chocolate chip cookies in the waffle post, though they were tasty. I don’t think I could do cheese and chocolate in the same food.ย 

  • Oh yuck. I come back after a long week in Greece, and an even longer week of recovering from vacation, hoping to find a sexy picture of you in a short dress and pretty shoes, and instead you’re making cheesy waffles with blueberries and chocolate? Yuck.

  • This made me hungry for a Cannoli…..cheese, pastry and chocolate.. gotta find one now!!!!!!

  • Totally agree with you! That’s why I asked about the apples. It’s actually not bad because the apples get soft, but not mushed.

  • Thank you, and welcome! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Thanks Jen! I think cheese and chocolate work, depending on the cheese…maybe a cream cheese would have been ok. Hmmmm…maybe I’ll try it and see!

  • Lemmikki? I barely recognized your lovely bronze face! Ok, next post definitely features me in a short dress and pretty shoes ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I’ve never had a cannoli with chocolate before!

  • Mikewj

    Uh, I was Googling short dresses and pretty shoes — you know, for research on my new book, “What Women Want & What 98% of Men Want Women to Want”ย — and to my great surprise it brought me here.

  • Dude! You’re ALIVE!! Well, sort of. That’s great! Tell the truth, are you really surprised your research led you here? In any case, stick around, I feel a post coming on that may help with your book! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Sounds like our next review!

    Why is it that when a woman loses her job, she stops posting? Shouldn’t it be the other way around?

  • Um, I’ve posted something like 5 posts since this one. I even posted one today…before you left this comment. Why is it when a man nags, it’s because HE’S not paying attention?

  • That sounded super D duper yummy until the boys had a hand in adding fruits and chocolate. Do they put ketchup on their steak, too?

  • Yes, they do. Heathens!
