Can we start now , please ?
What's up ?
It's Lauren from Hoffer food back with another recipe .
So today we are going to do a recipe .
But the only thing I know that I'm going to do is make waffles because I got a new waffle iron .
If you watched my personal youtube channel , you would have seen a few weeks ago .
I said we really need to get a waffle iron .
And so I did , it was only $30 on sale , pretty inexpensive appliance .
And now we can make sweet waffles , savory waffles , full waffle , waffles , pizza , waffles , pancake , waffles , grilled cheese , waffles , potato waffles , mm , breakfast sandwich , waffles , spaghetti waffles .
Basically anything can be waffled now .
So I'm very excited .
We're gonna make something today .
I've never used one of these in my entire life , which is crazy .
I can't believe I've never owned one .
So we're gonna see what's in the fridge .
What kind of leftovers I have going on and make some type of waffle magic .
As usual .
We are going in the fridge to see what we have and I know I have a lot of leftovers because it was just Thanksgiving on the weekend for us here in Canada .
I've got leftover almond feta .
I've also got some leftover , like potatoes I cooked and seasoned that nobody really ate at Thanksgiving .
I've got leftover lasagna .
No , not a lasagna waffle .
But I think I did mention potato waffle .
The , the most logical thing would be to mash up these potatoes , which I think we should do and then make some type of sauce with the leftover cheese because otherwise we're just making a waffle from scratch with like batter .
And I , we might as well just use the potatoes and then we've got lots of greens so we could put that in on top with the sauce .
So let's work on these potatoes .
So I'm more into a savory waffle .
So I think potato waffle is good .
Plus being that we just had Thanksgiving .
But you guys watching in the US have Thanksgiving coming up .
Now , you know , you could make a potato waffle with your leftover potatoes or leftover mashed potatoes .
I think that this is the perfect idea on how to use leftovers in our recipe .
I'm gonna run these through a food processor to get them really smooth .
We should caramelize some onion and put that in there in the , in the potato kind of like to hold it together because I think waffles normally have eggs in them to make them really like stick together .
Um So caramelized onions is another good binder .
Let's do that .
So I'm just gonna cut up this leftover onion into thin slices and we're gonna caramelize this in a pan with a little bit of oil and get them nice and brown .
So caramelizing onions takes anywhere from 10 to 16 minutes , depending on how many onions you're doing or whatever .
So these will just be a little bit longer .
We are going to season this a little bit , there's already salt pepper and a little bit of basil on the skin of these .
Um So I'm just gonna add some more spices , nutmeg chili powder and maybe more , a little more basil and we'll put a clove of garlic in there .
So I think these are close to done .
They're good enough .
Oh , little stuffed in here .
Um I'm gonna need some liquid as well .
I forgot .
So I wanted to make like a buttermilk which if you watch some of our other videos I've explained is almond or soy milk with apple cider vinegar .
Um And you kind of just let it sit .
I should have done it like 10 minutes ago .
But anyways , we're gonna do half a cup and a teaspoon of vinegar .
Just stir that together and let it set for 10 minutes .
Basically , it curdles and that's like buttermilk .
Plus you get a little bit of acidity , which is always good to balance things out .
Oh , I think it needs a little bit more salt and I'm gonna add nutritional yeast and then we're ready for the waffle iron .
It's good though .
I like the nutmeg , close the lid .
Plug , the cord in the ready light will come on to indicate the unit is heating .
When the ready light goes out .
After five minutes it is ready .
The iron is ready .
It's very hot .
I think I have to wait like 4 to 6 minutes .
I set the timer for five minutes .
I think the key with waffles just like pancakes is patience .
It looks good .
If I open it and it's not crispy , then the whole thing is ruined because it's just gonna peel apart .
It's OK .
Don't burn yourself .
I think I wanna go a little longer .
A piece stuck .
Hi Rowan , welcome back to Lame TV .
Today we're going to start a series of segments where we're going to look at waffles and you can do a lot with waffles .
You can put stuff inside , you can make them sweet , you can make them savory .
They're really not that difficult to make .
And it is the sort of thing where you can make the batter a day or two ahead , cover it with plastic wrap , stick it in the fridge and it's ready to go when you need them .
So if you don't have time on a Saturday or Sunday morning to get up and make the batter , you can do it the night before or two nights before and it's ready to go for you .
So , before we get started here , I've already got the waffle iron preheating .
It does take a little while to heat up .
So I get that going and then I make the batter .
We have to salvage this people .
I'm just gonna add about another quarter cup of almond milk .
Let's do this again .
Less batter this time .
You have no idea what's happening under here .
Why don't they make like a clear top ?
Does it smell like it's burning ?
It's a little crispy .
Maybe this waffle iron sucks .
Well , that's better .
So , this one looks good .
I guess we'll just make a couple more .
We'll see how many we can get out of this .
I'm gonna make a quick little fresh tomato salsa type stuff for the top .
So we're going to start off first with some flour and this is just a regular all purpose flour gonna put in a little bit of salt , some baking powder and sugar and just want to , uh , whisk that together just to incorporate it all , get it mixed in , get the baking powder and the salt mixed in throughout the flour .
And to this , we're going to add some melted butter , some yogurt .
You can also use sour cream .
If you don't have yogurt , you just kind of eat that sour acidy type flavor .
Now , this first one I'm gonna do for 3.5 minutes .
I flip it over and fill the other side , close the lid and we flip it back , flipping it over , fills both sides of the plate .
You get even cooking and you get a nice fluffy waffle .
So the buzzer tells me that 3.5 minutes are up .
They should be cooked .
But you just never know .
Now , I look at that and I think it's not quite done enough for me .
I'm going to let it go just a little bit longer .
And the timer on this one starts to count up .
So when I go to cook the next set of waffles , I know how long to set the timer .
So there we go , crispy and golden brown , just the way I like them and very carefully pull them out .
This is non stick .
So I'm using rubber tongs and we just flip it over and pull it out from the other side .
Now , that recipe makes enough for five of these waffles .
So , what I would do is wait for it to come back up to temperature and just continue the process .
These waffles are really good with some strawberry jam on top or some peach preserves on top .
And of course , the old standby maple syrup .
Hope you enjoy this one and I hope to see you again soon .
