Every time I go south to Portland I’m blown away by yet another restaurant, hole in the wall, food truck, doughnut shop, or some other various purveyor of food. Last time I was down, celebrating a friends impending wedding we were treated with a survivor’s breakfast of waffles.
But these were no ordinary waffles.
We went to The Waffle Window, literally a window stand of waffles of all kinds. Sweets, savories, heavenly mixes of kinds in between. Divinity in waffled nooks and crannies.
That day, my day of waffl-ightenment – I tried the BBB Waffle, otherwise known as the Bacon, Brie and Basil Waffle.
*pause for gasp and dramatic effect*
Yeah. There was no need for syrup, just a healthy dollop of peach preserves nestled below the three B’s that added a sweet tingle to the savory fair on top.
Ever since then this combo has stuck in my mind like an obnoxious, but fabulous song you can’t get out of your head. Red Solo Cup anyone? #earworm
Unlike the Waffle Window, I was unable to replicate the sugary crunch on the outside of their waffles, and opted instead of peach preserves to use my own Blackberry Grand Marnier jam. It was not an unfortunate substitute.
On top went 3 leaves of basil chiffonadededed on top, thin slices of brie and of course bacon, which just makes live better.
Go make this. It’s just the ticket for the sweet and savory lover in you. Or the PMSing girl in you.
Now, I’m off to BlogHer! See you on the flip side! And a big Thank you to Star Fine Foods for giving me the opportunity to meet new friends and hone my blogging skillz. Yes, that warranted a “z”.
