I love a good Belgian Waffle. Unfortunately, since I have a slight addiction to kitchen gadgets and small appliances, I’ve been forbidden to bring any more into the house until another gadget leaves. Can you relate?
Instead of making them fresh, I make do with the frozen version; Trader Joe’s brand are my favorites! Today I want to share with you my three favorite ways to enjoy them, two are deliciously sweet and one is a savory lunch or dinner option. All, of course, go great with a cup of tea!
First up . . . a great summertime treat of fresh, sliced peaches, fresh blueberries, and a drizzle of local honey. I picked all of these sweet toppings at my local farmer’s market.
Next up, if you’ve read my About Page, you know that I love chocolate covered strawberries. So why not make a Chocolate Strawberry Belgian Waffle? Fresh, sliced strawberries, fresh whipped cream, and a drizzle of melted dark chocolate. Yes, please!
Last, but certainly not least, a good savory option for lunch or dinner is another great way to enjoy Belgian Waffles. Chicken a la King Belgian Waffle:
Chicken a la King Recipe:
- 6 Belgian Waffles (warmed or toasted to package directions)
- 1/2 Cup Green Pepper, chopped
- 2 Tbsp Butter
- 1 Can Cream of Chicken and Mushroom Soup
- 1/2 Cup Milk
- 2 Cups Cooked and Diced Chicken
- 1/4 Cup Diced Pimento
In a medium saucepan, melt butter then add green pepper and cook until tender. Add remaining ingredients and heat, stirring occasionally. Spoon over warm waffles and serve immediately.
