We have been all about the burrata, tomato, prosciutto (and usually peach) combo this summer, and have really been trying to find new ways to stick them into different recipes, like our Flatbreads topped with Peach and Burrata and our Heirloom Tomato Summer Peach and Burrata Plate. It’s just such a winner summer combination and I can’t get enough, so today we made another version but this time, using it on top of a delicious and fluffy savory waffle recipe. Our Cheesy Waffle Topped with Burrata, Tomato and Prosciutto! I love a great savory waffle and loading them up with all the yummy things makes them that much better!
Tips for making the best Savory Waffles:
- It is important to make sure you properly pre-heat your waffle maker. If you don’t preheat the waffle maker you risk your waffles turning out soggy.
- Make sure to evenly coat your waffle maker with cooking spray between every batch
- Only mix the batter until it’s fully incorporated. If you over-mix the batter, your waffles won’t be as fluffy and tender.
- No peeking! If you lift the lid before the waffle is done cooking, you could tear the waffle open.
There are two easy methods to make these ahead.
Make the batter ahead: Store the batter in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days. Take our of the refrigerator and let sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes before using.
Make the waffles ahead: Make the waffles ahead and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days. When you are ready to serve, preheat the oven to 250°. Space the waffles out on a baking sheet and bake for 6-8 minutes or until heated through. Serve how you prefer!
Savory Herb Waffle Toppings
In addition to the burrata, cherry tomatoes, and prosciutto that we love to use to top our savory waffles, there are so many different toppings that are perfect. Below are some ideas:
- Fried eggs (and bacon would be a good addition as well)
- Bruschetta (Or even our Elote Bruschetta)
- Boozy Bacon Jam
- Smashed Avocado
- Lox and Cream cheese (or our Beet Cured Salmon)
- Top with a simple green salad
We love this inexpensive Cuisinart Waffle Maker.
