Breakfast of Champions # 74 – Belgian Waffles With Caramelized Fruit

Rösti-Waffles, Gravlax And Poached Egg

X > I usually don’t participate in spreading nonsense like “Rösti-Waffles”, but this is different. When I saw this the first time, I thought – why?! – this got to be just another silly way of trying to be “inventive” and/or “different”, or “cutting edge”, or whatever. But, I tried it nevertheless. Instantly, I became […]

BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS # 61 – Chocolate Buttermilk Waffles With Strawberries In Honey/Vanilla Cream

Today was the first time that I remember getting up at 7.00pm without a reason other than trying this new lifestyle, where I get up early and go to sleep early (Midnight), without any compelling reason other than that’s the conventional thing to do. Let’s see how long THAT last’s……… So, getting up that early […]

Red Velvet Waffles (The Good Ones)

> Ever  since I bought a new waffle iron about a year ago, waffles have become one of my favorite “Quickies” (Get your mind out of the gutter) 🙂 I prep them usually about once a week, sweet or savory, with whatever I dream up that could go well with or within waffles. The one […]

Chicken And Waffles

> > Chicken And Waffles  are deeply rooted in the American south and have become a staple  Soul Food  item.

However, my own version presented here, with very crisp waffles, sautéed boneless chicken breast and smothered […]

Blackberry Waffles With Vanilla Cream

> > I had  these a couple of days ago and I had waffles again this morning (bacon waffles). Waffles – my new Addiction 😦 🙂 I have made them with raspberries, bacon, shrimp, crab meat, caramelized apples, shredded chicken and caramelized onions. They are so versatile and never disappoint. Just make sure that when you […]

Chili-Shrimp Waffles

> > Chili-Shrimp Waffles might just have become both my favorite waffle- and my favorite shrimp-recipe. It is the best thing I have eaten for some time and as you know, I usually eat good 🙂 The key to the success of this dish  is the balance between sweet and spicy. The chili must not overpower […]

Belgian Buttermilk Waffles With Fresh Raspberries, Yogurt And Honey

> > Today  I rolled breakfast and lunch into one yummy, satisfying brunch by preparing these special treats. Waffles were served on special occasions at our home when I was a kid. It was one of the dishes my dear Mom excelled on preparing. Eating and enjoying them today made me wonder why I did not prepare waffles more […]

One For The Kids # 2 – Banana/Nutella Tortilla Roll With Fresh Raspberries And Blueberries

> > Yesterday  afternoon my friend Ralf came by with his four-year old son Justin. Ralf and I had some Chili Noodles which were fantastic, but would have been way too spicy for a four-year old, so I made this dish for him. I made this for him before, so I knew he would love it. […]
