WAFFLE WEDNESDAY ♡ Les Waffles Parisiens

Finally it’s here – spring! Oh sun I’ve been missing you. For me spring means more quality time with friends and family. It also boosts my inspiration to cook more pancakes and waffles. I just came from Paris where I got lots of ideas for new recipes. Needless to say I also got to eat plenty of crepes that inspired me to create this salty waffle suitable for lunch or snack. I named it as Le Waffle Parisien because it’s like Crepe Parisien but in the form of a waffle. Usually Crepe Parisien is a stuffed crepe with champignons, ham and cheese. Pancakes and waffles are great for sharing and they suit very well for barbecue parties and get-togethers.

In France, the homeland of salty pancakes aka crepes, it is common to drink dry, artisan cider which have a slight taste of beer. I am not a big fan of beers but fresh cold beer is a perfect match for a salty and cheesy waffle. This Kopparberg’s Fruit lager is a great beer for a beginner like me because of its mild and fruity flavour. It reminds me a lot of beer mixtures like radler or snake bite which I like both a lot.
