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.

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

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams.

Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P
