The Easter Waftata

>> Saturday, March 31, 2018






It's always fun to play around with a new recipe on the long weekend, when there's a little extra time!

I had never heard of a Waftata, but apparently it is a recipe reincarnated from days of yore - and super easy to cook in a modern day waffle iron! I have upped the flavour factor from the original recipe, and given options below for using eggs or egg whites in the recipe.  I think there is lots of opportunity to get creative with flavour - try adding paprika or oregano for an extra twist!

Ingredients:

  • 2 large eggs (or 1/2 cup egg white)
  • 1/3 cup part skim ricotta cheese
  • 2 tbsp onion, finely diced
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 3 tsp freshly chopped parsley
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup peeled and shredded white potato
  • 1/2 cup finely diced apple (with or without skin)




Directions:

1.   Beat eggs in a small bowl.

2.  Add ricotta, onion, garlic, parsley, pepper and salt.  Whisk well.

3.  Preheat your waffle iron.

4.  Stir potato and apple into the mixture.

5.  Spray waffle iron with non stick spray and pour mixture onto it.

6.  Close lid and bake until eggs are set and golden brown.


Makes 2 servings.  Per serving:  (with whole eggs)
