I’m not usually all too creative when I cook.
I got the urge to make breakfast for hubby and me this morning though, but when I went to find syrup for pancakes, zilch.
Redo for tomorrow, I told him. Oh, and I’d try waffles instead. We got a waffle maker roughly 3 years ago – and I’ve never used it.
Putting the baking mix into one of those fabulous OXO containers (if you don’t have any, get some. Seriously. They’re worth the price), I realized I had about one cup too much to fit. About a half of what the recipe called for for waffles.
Mixed it all up and thought, let’s put some jelly in the batter, moisten them up a bit. No jelly.
But I see pesto.
Savory waffles. It works with crepes, why wouldn’t it work with waffles??
Let me tell you, it does.
For a half-recipe, less than a teaspoon mixed into the batter – maybe a little more next time? Sprinkled some shredded mozzarella on top, added a dollop of pesto (I do love the stuff). Yum.
I think I’ll be creative more often.
