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.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
