I Want A Little Savory

March 10, 2011

My waffle iron was at it again this morning! I just couldn’t help mah self. We’ll call it my new waffle obsession.

After the chocolatey waffle yesterday, I thought a savory waffle would be fun!

Spinach & Cheese Buttermilk Waffle (for one)

1/3 cup milk

1/2 tsp. vinegar

3 Tbsp. white-whole wheat flour

3 Tbsp. oat bran or oat flour

heaping 1/2 tsp. baking powder

salt and pepper, to taste

2-3 Tbsp. finely shredded spinach leaves

2 Tbsp. shredded cheese (I used mozzarella and sharp cheddar)

1-2 Tbsp. chopped white onion

1-2 Tbsp. chopped tomato

Preheat waffle iron.

Combine milk and vinegar in small bowl; let sit 5 minutes until sour and curdled (this is now buttermilk).

Mix together dry ingredients. Pour in buttermilk. Gently stir and add the spinach, cheese, onion and tomato. Grease waffle iron. Immediately transfer batter to hot waffle iron. Enjoy!

And enjoy I did. πŸ™‚ I loved all the colors and flavors in this waffle!

I find it helpful to keep chopped onion, spinach, tomatoes and other veggies stored in little baggies in the fridge to make meal times easier and quicker.

Today, since I had all the ingredients for waffles out, I made waffle mixes! I just combined all the dry ingredients and added them to little baggies. Now, if I want a waffle, all I have to do is add milk, vanilla extract and other mix-ins!

While the waffle iron was still on this morning, I made this little buggerΒ aΒ chocolate waffle.

He loved it.

When you were little, who was your favorite Disney princess? Mine was Cinderella! I loved all the princesses but I think I loved Cinderella the most because we had the same hair color πŸ™‚

    I’ve always wanted to try savory waffles but I could never find I recipe I liked. I like this recipes so I’ll try this soon!
    My favorite Disney Princess was Princess Jasmine

    omg, I think I love you! Why oh WHY have I never thought of mixing savory things into my waffle mix? I always do fruit (blueberries or bananas) or the occasional chocolate chips. You must be a freaking genius …..or maybe I’m just a little slow? Either way, I’m TOTALLY going to mix in some spinach, onion, & tomato to the VERY NEXT waffles I make – maybe this weekend???

    My favorite princess was Belle from Beauty & the Beast! πŸ™‚

    I love the idea of a savory waffle–that would bomb topped with hummus!

  8. March 10, 2011 2:31 pm

    Savory waffle? Awesome idea!
    My favorite princesses were belle and jasmine. Belle because I’m most like her and Jasmine because I thought she was the toughest. =D

    My favorite Disney princess was Pocahontas! I know that a lot of people don’t consider her one of the princesses but whatever, she rocks. In fact, I was so enamored with her that I went through a super intense Pocahontas stage.. and even went to my first day of Kindergarten dressed as an Indian. πŸ™‚

    I have a waffle maker but never use it! I love the idea of mixing savory foods into waffle batter. YUM. πŸ˜€

  12. March 10, 2011 3:25 pm

    It’s been my dream since I was 5 to be Cinderella when I grow up.

    I’m still working on it. πŸ˜‰

    AND you’re so smart to bag up those little portions!

  13. March 10, 2011 3:35 pm

    I’ve never made a SAVORY waffle before!!! Yours sounds AMAZING! πŸ˜€ I love how you made little baggies of your Chocolate Waffles (I’m checking out that recipe right NOW! :))! So smart girl! πŸ˜€

    My favorite Disney Princesses are Belle, Aurora, Ariel, Cinderella, and Pocahontas! πŸ™‚

    LOVE YA!

    Smart idea bagging up the waffle!
    Hm…Pocahontas! I’m not sure if she is considered to be a princess but I was obsessed. I always wanted to be her or a lost girl like wendy, haha. I loved adventures.

  15. March 10, 2011 4:01 pm

    I am pretty sure Jasmine or belle were my fav. I was obsessed with all of them though…oh those beautiful/flawless girls!

  16. March 10, 2011 4:38 pm

    That’s like what I did with my oatmeal bags! Glad you’re using the idea too:) I’ve never had a savory waffle, but it sounds fab!

    That’s so awesome! I’ve never seen a savory waffle before. Very creative. πŸ™‚

  21. March 10, 2011 5:59 pm

    What a neat idea! You could get really creative with savory waffles. Maybe you could make a sandwich out of them! I’d like to try that!! The waffle iron is probably my favorite kitchen appliance, but I don’t use it enough. Sometimes I make paninis with it though!

    • March 10, 2011 7:36 pm

      OH MY GOSH! That is a wonderful idea, I never even thought of that! I’ve always wanted a panini maker, but I never realized I could use the waffle iron!! THANK YOU

  22. March 10, 2011 6:24 pm

    That sounds so good! I’ll have to hunt down my mom’s waffle iron and try it, minus the cheese…

    My favorite princess was always Belle. I watched Beauty and the Beast so many times that I wrecked the vhs…
