Savory Waffles - Food Gypsy

Waffle Workshop – The Savory

Published On April 28, 2011 | By Gypsy | Gastronomy, Tips & Techniques

 Savory Waffles, because I’m sweet enough already.

A day in the Gypsy Test Kitchen.  It started innocently enough… looking for a savory waffle delivery vehicle for some hollandaise and a bit of egg for Mother’s day.  Next thing you know I’m hip deep in batter, venturing into new territory, digging things out of the fridge.  I’m not sure (because I was full and haven’t tasted it yet) but I may have jumped-the-shark with the Hoisin Chicken Waffle.

What can I say, I was on a roll after the Buttermilk Black Pepper Bacon waffles, which was wicked and made it into the Bacon-Waffle-Grilled-Cheese Sammich post

Thrilled with the other cheesy takes, moving in an interesting direction.  I’m undecided at the moment if you will see the Ricotta Chive or the Parmesan for our Mother’s Day Brunch menu. Cheddar Green Onion was great and I’m rather in love with the Feta Olive, by far the most aromatic of the savory waffles I tested.

You know when the neighbors start dropping by asking “what are you COOKING?!” you’re on to something.

Sooner or later I’m sure you’ll see all of the recipes, but if there’s one in particular you’d rather see sooner, as opposed to later – let a Gypsy know. 

It’s fun to play in the kitchen!
