Take waffles for a savory spin by adding grated zucchini, Gruyere, scallions, and fresh dill to the batter. Finish with garlicky sauteed spinach, creme fraiche, and smoked salmon for a restaurant-worthy brunch dish.
The secret to a tender (not gummy) waffle is to cook it all the way through. The cooking time will vary based on your waffle iron; shoot for a moderate heat and cook until golden brown and crispy. Then test the first waffle by slicing into the center: It should look fluffy!
