Breakfast Grilled Cheese with Waffles + book #giveaway from @AveryAames aka DarylWoodGerber

It's Christmas Week at MLK!!

Welcome!

From Daryl aka Avery:

I'm offering a book giveaway. Don't miss out! See details below.

With a Cheese Shop Mystery coming out in February, I'm already thinking cheese. Oh, who am I kidding? I'm always thinking about cheese. I like it for lunch, snacks, and dinner.

And I love it for breakfast. Especially when there's something easy I can make that turns out totally delicious and kid-friendly. We all need kid-friendly foods during the holidays, right? And if not kid-friendly, then adult-adored!  Yes, this recipe I stumbled upon...in a magazine...is adult-adored. Yum! Do I sound like I'm gushing? Yes!

It's simple. Easy. Did I mention simple? Only a few ingredients (which really pleases one of my protagonists)!  And it involves cheese (which pleases my other protagonist)!

I would imagine you could switch up the cheese to a fine cheddar, a tasty mascarpone, an easily meltable Gruyere. Play with this recipe. It's fun!

But I have to admit making it with cream cheese was so easy. And who doesn't need easy during the holidays?

Enjoy!



BREAKFAST GRILLED CHEESE

Food Network Magazine March 2014
Ingredients:

1/3 cup whipped cream cheese
1/4 cup small-curd cottage cheese
2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar, plus more for topping
4 frozen waffles, untoasted
1 to 2 tablespoons jam, any flavor
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, plus more if needed


Ground cinnamon for topping

Directions:

Mix the cream cheese, cottage cheese and confectioners’ sugar in a medium bowl. Sread 2 waffles with the jam, then top with the cream cheese mixture; cover with the remaining 2 waffles.

Note: I used gluten-free waffles for this recipe and they were delicious!!





Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sandwiches and cook until golden and crips, about 3 minutes per side, adding more butter to the pan if needed. Adjust the heat oif the waffles are browning too quickly.



Let the sandwiches rest 1 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar and cinnamon.

Yum!
