The idea for me to create a savoury waffles for the Thermomix came about from a lovely Thermobexta Facebook group member, Claire. She posted a photo last night of some savoury waffles she’d made her family for dinner.
They looked terrific and her kids liked them… However, they asked if she could please not make them again for at least two years! hahah from the mouths of babes…
Well that got me in the mood to eat savoury waffles and I knew a batter would be made in seconds in the Thermomix. This was something I hadn’t eaten before but sounded like something I’d like!
I’ve been wanting to create a cauliflower cheese fritter for a long time. So I combined the two ideas and have come up with this very yummy savoury waffle!
Oh and I asked if Claire would like to test them out on her kids. She said she’d love to. They had them for dinner and when she asked if they’d like them again sometime, the response was ‘yes… tomorrow!’
Don’t Have a Waffle Maker?
This is the waffle maker I use and recommend (no affiliation). If you don’t have a waffle maker and are looking to purchase, I highly recommend you spend a little more on something like this than buy a cheapie. Like with everything, you get what you pay for.
I’ve had several people upgrade their cheapies to this one, on my recommendation and being very impressed about how much better waffles are for them now!
If you’d prefer to try a different method of cooking, I’ve seen them looking fabulous coming out of a good old jaffle maker, also fried in a frying pan and made in pie makers!
More a Sweet Tooth?
For sweet waffles, check out my Thermomix Waffles! Actually they can be served sweet or savoury, but generally we serve them with sweet toppings. These Cauliflower Cheese Waffles we love with eggs, or just by themselves as a savoury bite!
