Gluten Free Savoury Waffles
These gluten free savoury waffles are a real treat. You can create some really great toppings for these or just eat them as they are. Some obvious ones are poached eggs, bacon, or any other breakfasty topping or you could do something more involved which I will show you in my next post.
3 Cups of Gluten Free Plain Four
1 Tablespoon of Gluten Free Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon Gluten Free Bicarbonate of Soda
1 Teaspoon of Gluten Free Cream of Tartar
2 Pinches of salt
3 Tablespoons of vegetable oil
2 Cups of water
1 Cup of Parmesan cheese
1 Bunch of fresh chives – chopped into pieces of about 1 ½ cm in length
*** If you want to make these lactose free then you can use a cheese substitute or just not add the cheese.
Put the Gluten Free Plain flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, cream of tartar and salt into a medium mixing bowl and whisk together these dry ingredients.
- In a separate small bowl ,whisk the eggs together until smooth.
- Grate the cheese fairly finely so it mixes well with the flour mixture.
- Add the cheese and the chives to the flour mixture.
- Preheat the waffle maker to the desired setting, (since this mixture contains raising agents and cheese you might want to use the setting somewhere from the middle to top range depending on what type of waffle maker you have).
- Add the eggs, vegetable oil and gradually add the water until you reach your desired consistency, the amount of water may differ slightly so mix it in last a bit at a time until you get the desired consistency for your waffle maker. The waffle mixture will be quite thick and lumpy because of the cheese, but you still should be able to pour it from the bowl.
- Let the batter rest for 5 minutes.
- Pour enough batter to cover the centre of the lower grid and using a heat proof spatula spread the mixture evenly across it. Close the lid of the waffle maker and wait until the tome sounds that they are ready.
- Remove the waffles from the maker and break or cut into portions and there you have it. Too easy!
This recipe makes eight waffles.
These savoury waffles make a great replacement to toast at the breakfast table and kids will love them.
Of course you can use any type of cheese you want to, and you can add fresh parsley to the mix as well, for a fresher taste.
