Smoked Salmon – Latke Waffle – Benedict

This recipe has no beer and no beer pairing. I know, it’s a travesty. But I have good reasoning. First off, it is a waffle (kind of) for waffle week so it’s still somewhat acceptable. Second, it’s the kind of meal you eat after a long night of beer drinking when you wake up with a dry mouth, pounding headache, and craving for something delicious. Since I went to the Great Divide anniversary party last night, I woke up in a fashion similar to what I just described – and this smoked salmon – latke waffle – benedict was just what I needed to hit the spot.

BLT-double-E Waffle Sandwich

I just about died when I bit into this BLT-double-E waffle sandwich. Maybe you can’t tell from the picture but there are actually fried eggs cooked into the waffle. That’s right, in the middle of each waffle, there is a precious little egg waiting to satisfy your every bite. Also on the sandwich, is lettuce. It is a BLT after all but if you’ve read my previous posts, you know I hate salad and I hate lettuce. I’ll bear through the green stuff though, if it’s on a bacon sandwich. The best part about this BLT-double-E, besides being so darn delicious, is that it’s flexible! Who says you even have to add lettuce? You could add avocado, more bacon, turkey, more bacon….you get the picture.

BBQ Chicken and Cornbread Waffles

It’s the beginning of waffle week and I hope y’all are ready to start the all-carb diet! I’ve got some great things in store but to start it off, I’m doing another spin on the classic chicken and waffles. Maybe you remember the Sweet Chili Fried Chicken and Buttermilk Chive Waffles? This time, I made a BBQ Chicken and Cornbread Waffle. The BBQ sauce was made using Smoke Jumper – a smoked imperial porter from Left Hand Brewing that packs the perfect amount of campfire smokiness. I never made a BBQ sauce before this one so I must say, I think I did pretty well. I’d describe it as ‘sweet heat’ where it starts of a little sweet and tangy (and of course smokey) and ends with spicy flavors. Top it all with some green onions and a dash of salt and you’re ready for a great meal on the patio.
