Apple cider waffles can be made sweet or savory. Use them as a base for pulled
pork or drizzle them with syrup or caramel.
Apple cider waffles can be made sweet or savory. We have
enjoyed them piled with apple cider pulled pork and slaw for dinner. For a
treat, try them drizzled with cider caramel and topped with a dollop of whipped
cream. They are hard to beat!
Confession time: I was only going to make these as a
somewhat savory waffle recipe. I wanted it as a base for some fun
Apple Cider Braised Pork
that is coming to the blog soon. So I made them and they were delicious.
The problem was I had a jar of what was left of some
Apple Cider Caramel Sauce
in the fridge and it was nagging at me. Things as delicious as that can’t
just sit around forever and I knew that a sweet version of these waffles spiced
with a little cinnamon and nutmeg would be the perfect
excuse er, vehicle upon which to eat the caramel.
You guys….. I cannot even explain how good it was together.
Of course a little freshly whipped cream on top never hurt anything, nor
did the sprinkle of cinnamon.
Oh man, now I need to make more. I am getting hungry
all over again just thinking about it!
Before you ask, the recipe for the pork and the caramel are both
coming. One thing at a time folks, you need the base first!
would also be great with maple syrup on top. Or
MiMi’s Better Apple Butter
would be a great choice too! In fact, you should probably go ahead and
give that a try. You know, for practice and all.
If you can’t tell, I have been getting really excited about
apples lately. Our local apple orchard just opened with the first couple
of variety of apples. They have THE BEST cider in all of the land!
No, really I am pretty sure it is! So it is hard to not be
in the mood for apple everything. Besides, I know pumpkin will be taking
over the world soon and I want to give apples a chance while I can.
The best part? This is just a lead up to a fun even that
is coming at the end of the month. Some of my bestest blogging friends
and I have been working on putting together #appleweek for you.
It is going to be a week of apple themed appetizers, drinks, main
dishes, sides, crafts, projects. If it’s apple, we’re making it. I
now I am laying the foundation for delicious things to come!
