A delicious Belgian waffle with whipped cream, fresh fruit and powdered sugar: oh isn’t that a treat? It’s no wonder Belgium is known around the world for their waffles. But even though they are usually considered to be a sweat treat, you can get very creative with these waffles, which is exactly what I decided to do.
Even though I had never eaten them myself, I decided to give this Belgian classic an Irish twist by turning them into potato waffles, made from creamy mashed potatoes with lovely Kerrygold butter and herbs, served with cold mascarpone balls, crispy chorizo and tasty spring onion. As a finishing touch I made a honey-butter sauce, which you can firm up in the fridge and then serve as little peaks on top, after which they’ll melt all over the waffle.
You can of course make up your own toppings, like bacon or an egg if you want to make a breakfast potato waffle, or you can also serve it with other things like Irish lamb, steak, sausages or rotisserie chicken or even some fresh cod.
