End-of-Summer Savory Peach Waffles

Summer is drawing to a close and if you're like me that means that you have peaches luring fruit flies somewhere in your kitchen. A 4lb bag of Palisade peaches certainly can attract quite a few of those little buggers. That also means, if you're like me, that you have the perfect excuse to procrastinate on your reading assignments! Our kitchen has been filled with peach everything but I think this morning's recipe was by far my favorite. Waffles with peaches and sage! It's the perfect combination of savory and sweet. It makes for a hearty (and fancy) breakfast. So if you're looking to use up those peaches before your kitchen fills up with winter squash, I would definitely give this recipe a go! As always, let me know what you think! 

Ingredients

*the waffle base of this recipe was adapted from allrecipes.com

  • 2 cups flour (I used all purpose but I would recommend using 1 cup whole wheat + 1 cup AP for a healthier waffle) 
  • 4 tsps baking powder 
  • 1/4 tsp salt 
  • 1 tbs white sugar 
  • 1 1/2 cup of milk (I used 2% but any milk will work depending on your dietary needs) 
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil 
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 1 1/2 tsp powdered sage 
  • 1 tsp sriracha 
  • 1 large peach, peeled and sliced 
  • Garnish as desired: Greek yogurt of choice (I used plain), more peaches! 

Directions:

  1. Place all of your ingredients, excluding peaches, in a large mixing bowl. 
  2. Mix until well combined. 
  3. Heat your waffle iron. I have the cuisinart classic waffle maker and set it to the number 4 setting. 
  4. Allow the mixture to sit for 5 minutes. 
  5. Place 1/4 cup of batter on the base of the waffle iron. Place sliced peaches on top and cover with another 1/4 cup of batter. 
  6. Cook until done. This step will depend on your waffle iron but took about 1 1/2 minutes on my waffle iron. 
  7. Serve waffles with yogurt, peaches and extra sriracha if you like some heat!
