After an impromptu waffle iron buy last night, we decided to make waffles this morning! This savory waffle is delicious with the mustard syrup! And the best part is, it is so easy to make!
Cheddar & Scallion Waffles with Mustard Syrup
Ingredients (Makes 4-6 waffles, or 1 Belgium waffle) Waffles:
1 cup flour
1/8 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup of milk
3/4 of 1 stick of butter, melted and cooled
1/2 cup of shredded cheddar (I used monterey jack)
3-4 tablespoons of scallions, chopped
1/2 cup syrup
1/8 cup dijon mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1. Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a large bowl.
2. Whisk the milk, the cooled melted butter and 1 egg in a separate bowl until combined; pour into the flour mixture and stir until just combined. (A few small lumps are fine.)
3. Preheat a waffle iron; lightly brush with vegetable oil, then fill with batter three-quarters full and cook until the waffles are golden and crisp.
1. Combine the syrup, mustard and salt in a saucepan over medium heat.
2. When the mixture begins to bubble, turn the heat to low. Stir until well combined.
3. Pour into a serving container and serve immediately.
Pour the syrup over the waffles to serve and enjoy!
I bought this Scallion Garlic butter at whole foods the other day and I had a whole stick of it. I have been using it with eggs, using it to cook meat and fish but still had quite a bit left. I saw that Giada made this cheddar and scallion garlic bread and I thought, “I have all those ingredients in one stick of butter!” So this recipe was super simple for me because most of the ingredients were already marinading together, all I had to do was add the cheddar cheese!
Below are the ingredients in case you don’t already have a stick a butter that has those ingredients in it. Even if you don’t already have a pre-made butter, this recipe is really easy and super yummy! I will never eat garlic bread the same way again!
Cheddar and Scallion Garlic Bread
8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded or coarsely grated
6 ounces butter, at room temperature
4 scallions, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 loaf ciabatta bread, cut in half horizontally
Place an oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
In a food processor, combine the cheese and butter. Process until the mixture is smooth. Add the scallions and pulse until combined. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Spread the cheese mixture on the cut sides of the bread. Sprinkle a little bit of shredded cheddar cheese on top of the spread for extra cheesiness! Place on a baking sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes until golden.
Using a serrated knife, cut the bread into 1-inch thick slices and serve.
I got a crockpot as a wedding present and haven’t done much with it yet. However, I found this recipe for a honey sesame chicken and thought it would be a good start!
Crock Pot Honey Sesame Chicken
3-4 Boneless/Skinless Chicken breasts
1/2 white onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 C honey
1/2 C low sodium soy sauce
Approx. 2 tbs olive oil
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/3 C water
3 scallions- chopped
Lightly season chicken with pepper and place in crockpot
Combine onion, garlic, honey, soy sauce, oil, and pepper over the chicken.
Cook on low for 6 hours
After about 4 hours I added in some water to the crock pot and after 6 just turned it to the “warm” setting
Remove chicken and shred into bite-size pieces (here you can either set aside or put back into the sauce). You can shred the chicken with a fork, or I have seen it done in a kitchen aid too just keep the speed to semi-low.
Prepare quinoa according to directions on package
Serve quinoa onto plates, top with chicken and spoon sauce on top.
Sprinkle sesame seeds and the chopped scallions over the top
Now as you might know by now, my husband likes things spicy. If you like it spicy I would add 1 tbsp of hot sauce or chili sauce into the crock pot so it absorbs in the whole dish. Or you can always taste the sauce before you serve it and add in your hot sauce then.
