Västerbotten cheese & spinach waffles
Västerbottensost våflor med spenat
Soon, it will be time for the annual Waffle Day (25th March) – this is one of the recipes we’ll be serving in the cafe next week to celebrate.
We make these waffles on cold days when the rain and sleet forces us to cosy up inside. This is the perfect low-effort snack – just throw everything together and cook in the waffle iron. Some of us love adding crispy pancetta/bacon pieces to this – but you can keep it veggie, too.
100 g/1 stick butter, melted, plus extra for greasing
150 g/11/2 cups chopped, cooked smoked bacon pieces/pancetta (optional)
– A heart-shaped waffle iron – available online. You can use a different shaped iron, but cooking time and yield may vary
Heat up the waffle iron and brush with melted butter.
Combine all the ingredients (apart from the sour cream) together with 350 ml/11/2 cups water and stir to incorporate and form a smooth, thick batter.
Add a ladle of batter to the hot waffle iron. Close the lid and cook for 2–3 minutes or until golden brown.
