Dressed Up Waffles

This month's Food Network Magazine has many fun ideas for Waffles.  I added feta, herbs and lemon zest to half the batter for a savory waffle, then topped a basic waffle with homemade applesauce.


(Makes 10-using 1/4 cup batter per waffle)

Mix dry ingredients in a bowl:  flours, sugar, baking powder and soda.
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup confectioners sugar
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda

Mix together eggs, milk and melted buttery spread.
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups skim milk
1/2 cup Earth Balance Buttery Spread, melted
Mix liquid egg mixture into dry flour mixture.  Mix just until blended.  (Do not overmix)
Make waffles, using plain batter, by adding 1/4 cup measure to each of the waffle squares.  I made 6 squares and cooled each on a wire rack.
To the remaining batter, add feta, spinach, herbs and zest. 
2 ounce feta
1/4 cup spinach, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh herbs (oregano, basil, parsley) chopped
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
Make the remaining waffles (4 more), by adding 1/4 cup feta batter to the waffle maker and baking.

Our feta waffles were topped with a fried egg (used 1 teaspoon olive oil to "fry" 2 eggs).
The plain waffles were topped with warm homemade applesauce.

 Have a great week.
