Scandinavian Cheese and Spinach Waffles

 

Waffles are a huge hit worldwide especially over the pond with our stateside cousins.

This Scandinavian offering is savoury and so tasty, perfect for breakfast, lunch and dinner!

They take no time at all to make, with very little effort and few ingredients required.

Plus, after a batch you get a warming feeling that is simply perfect for those autumn and winter days.

 

 

INGREDIENTS

MAKES 7–8

 

100 g butter, melted, plus extra for greasing
150 g plain/all-purpose flour
75 g wholegrain spelt flour
2 tsp baking powder
75 g finely grated Västerbotten cheese (or mature/sharp Cheddar)
100 g blanched, cooked spinach
a pinch of salt
freshly ground black pepper

150 g chopped, cooked smoked bacon pieces/pancetta (optional)
sour cream, to serve.

 

METHOD

 

Heat up the Andrew James Waffle Maker and brush with melted butter.

Combine all the ingredients (apart from the sour cream) together with 350 ml water and stir to incorporate and form a smooth, thick batter.

Add a ladle of batter to the hot waffle maker.

Close the lid and cook for 2–3 minutes or until golden brown.

Remove from the waffle iron and serve immediately with sour cream.

 

 

 

 

 

These spinach and cheese waffles are a Scandinavian staple, if you’re feeling fancy top with a fried egg with a soft yolk and watch it run down and coat these delicious batter beauties!

You could even skip putting the bacon in the waffles, and serve them up with a huge dollop of baconnaise.
