Croque Madame Waffle

So I got sick of making normal waffles with berries at work so today I made a croque madame sandwich in waffle form. And its a great idea for anyone who wants to use their waffle iron more but are sick of normal waffles!

Basic Waffle Batter- you can use you’re favorite or even use the premade box just add water stuff! It doesn’t matter because you are going to add things to it!

My Basic Waffle Batter-

1 ½ cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 Tbsp Flour
1 ½ cups milk
½ cup oil
3 eggs, lightly beaten

Sift together dry ingredients, mix together wet ingredients, stir together wet and dry until just combined.

Then add 1/2 cup of finely chopped turkey and 1/4 cup shredded cheese per waffle.

To make this more of a croque monsieur substitute finely chopped ham for the turkey.
As for the cheese you could use swiss, gouda, monterey jack blend, yellow or white cheddar, fontina, etc, whatever sounds good to you.

To serve top with a fried egg and some mornay sauce (recipe as follows) and garnish with chopped chives.

White Mornay Sauce

1/2 small onion, cut into 4 pieces
2 cloves garlic, halved
1/4 cup melted butter
2 Tbsp Flour
1 quart milk
2 whole cloves
1 bay leaf
white pepper
2 cups white cheese (blend of italian cheeses works well, asiago, parmesean, mozzarella, etc. Or swiss works will witha small amount of parmesean)

Saute the onion and garlic in melted butter until softened
add the flour and cook the roux for a minute or two
whisk in the milk, add the cloves, nutmeg, bay, salt and pepper
cook for about 20-30 minutes until thick and flavorful.
remove from heat, strain and stir in cheese. thin out with milk if necessary

    This sounds fantastic! The only croque I’ve ever had was at Payards but I believe they used a basic béchamel sauce, yours sounds so much better!
