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.
Les waffles parisiens
Serves 4 to 6
3 dl milk
2 tbsp melted butter
2,5 dl all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
200 gr cheddar cheese
200 gr ham
2,5 dl fresh sliced champignons
Choose a large bowl and whisk together eggs, milk, butter, flours and salt. Whisk properly until the mixture is silky smooth. Heat a waffle iron over medium heat and grease with butter. Pour few table spoons of mixture into iron and add few slices of ham, cheese and sliced champignons. After that pour more mixture on the top of it and let the waffle bake about 2 minutes. Serve warm with cold beer.
