Bleu Pig Potato Waffles {Gluten-Free} #SundaySupper


Waffle Mania!
Since June 29th is National Waffle Day, the Sunday Supper tastemakers are kicking off the week with a huge waffle party! Although waffles have been around for nearly seven hundred years, the first American patent for a waffle iron wasn't issued until the late 1800s. Sue from A Palatable Pastime has rallied us to celebrate all things waffle. She invited us to make anything in the waffle iron from sweets to savories and everything in between.

My Waffle...
I'm sure it's no surprise to anyone that I opted to make a savory waffle. I've made my share of sweet Dragonfruit Waffles to my Rhubarb Waffles and from my Olive Oil Waffles to my Coconut Milk Waffles. For Waffle Week last year, I shared Waffled Polenta Crisps with Caponata; and I've made Chicken and Mashed Potato Waffles for another event. But this time, the Enthusiastic Kitchen Elf said we should make waffles with bleu cheese and bacon. That sounded like a plan. He adores bleu cheese...and who doesn't love bacon?!?

To make them even more bluish, I used a mixture of baby potatoes, including purple potatoes.


Ingredients
  • 2 C mashed potatoes
  • 2 T butter
  • 1/3 C gluten-free flour (use regular flour if you wish)
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 to 1/2 C milk
  • 4 to 6 slices cooked bacon, crumbled + some for garnish
  • 3 T crumbled bleu cheese + some for garnish


Procedure
Heat the waffle iron to its highest setting. In a large bowl, mix together the potatoes, butter, egg, and milk. Gently fold in flour, bacon and bleu cheese. The potato batter will be a soft and sticky dough.


Place a scoop in the center of your very hot waffle maker and close the lid. Cook for a few minutes until crisp on the outside, about 3 to 4 minutes. Repeat with remaining potatoes.

To serve, top your waffle with more crumbled bleu cheese and some crumbled bacon.
