Faced with some bits and pieces of cheese in the fridge, I thought I would try my hand at a savoury waffle for lunch today, and these waffles with Gruyère and fresh thyme were absolutely scrumptious! The cheese adds lovely savouriness to the waffles and pairs wonderfully with a simple green salad on the side, dressed lightly with a mustard vinaigrette.
You could use another hard cheese in place of the Gruyère, such as Emmental, Comté or perhaps a mature cheddar.
What started out as a fridge clean-out turned into a delightful meal. These savoury waffles were so tasty that I think they would be perfect at breakfast or brunch as an alternative to your usual sweet waffles, or anytime of that day for that matter! I’m happy to confirm that my waffle maker has indeed been a good investment with very many happy returns 🙂
