Father’s Day excitement: Turn brunch into a design-your-own waffle bar.
We adapted this idea from Peach Valley Cafe, which has a variety of tasty waffles on the menu.
Prepare a waffles bar for brunch, game day or party fare.
Make your favorite waffles (we go for whole grain) and decide on your toppings, sweet or savory:
Chopped fresh herbs (basil, chives, dill, parsley)
Chopped green onions (scallions)
Grilled vegetable strips
Sautéed cherry tomatoes
Sour cream, Greek yogurt or crème fraîche
SAVORY WAFFLE TOPPINGS
PROTEIN TOPPINGS FOR SAVORY WAFFLES
Cheese: crumbled blue cheese or goat cheese, shredded Cheddar or mozzarella
Eggs: fried, hard-cooked/sliced, poached, scrambled
Candies: chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, M&Ms, Reese’s Pieces, toffee bits
Cottage cheese flavored with cinnamon sugar
Crème fraîche, mascarpone, whipped cream
Crumbled Oreos or chocolate wafer cookies
Cooked fruit: cinnamon apple slices, peaches, chopped oranges
Dried fruit: blueberries, cherries, cranberries
Fresh fruit: berries
Marinated fruit: fresh or dried fruit marinated in Grand Marnier or other orange liqueur
Nuts: almonds, pecans, pistachios, walnuts
OMG: an Oreo waffle. Dad may pass on it, but kids will love it. Photo courtesy Peach Valley Cafe.
