Whether it is for a gourmet starter with a strong character or a convivial aperitif with friends, maroilles waffles are sure to please. Surprising, these savory waffles hide a runny heart with the cheese from the North that we love so much… An easy and quick treat to prepare!
- 120g maroilles
- 100g potatoes
- 100g of flour
- 40 cl fresh cream
- 3 eggs
- salt pepper
Preparation 15 mins
Cooking 15 mins
Rest 2 hours
Peel the potatoes, then grate them finely.
In a bowl, beat the eggs into an omelette. Then add the fresh cream, salt, pepper and whisk again.
How to make an omelet
Incorporate the flour (ideally sifted to avoid the creation of lumps) little by little without ceasing to mix, until obtaining a smooth and homogeneous paste.
Add the grated potatoes, mix, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and leave to rest for 2 hours in the fridge.
Remove the rind from the maroilles and cut the cheese into thin pieces.
Light your waffle iron and oil it.
When hot, pour the batter into the cavities using a ladle. Sprinkle with shavings of maroilles in the middle, then cover with a little dough.
Close the mold and cook for 3 minutes on each side.
Serve your maroilles waffles immediately, while they are hot and the cheese is still running inside.
For a nice presentation and especially easier to taste them during the aperitif in particular, cut each waffle into (3) triangles… placed on a lettuce leaf, it will be great! And for those who prefer cheeses with character from other regions, the recipe also works with Livarot, Saint Nectaire… and many more!
