The people at Food Network magazine must have been thinking of us then they put out this month’s addition of their magazine…the whole magazine focuses on cheese. Cheese!!!
We made this last weekend and it is SO tasty! It’s a little on the sweet side, so it might make a fun dessert, too.
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
Mix the cream cheese, cottage cheese and confectioners’ sugar in a medium bowl.
Spread 2 waffles with the jam, then top with the cream cheese mixture; cover with the remaining 2 waffles.
Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sandwiches and cook until golden and crisp, about 3 minutes per side, adding more butter to the pan if needed. (Adjust the heat if the waffles are browning too quickly.)
Let the sandwiches rest 1 minute before serving. Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar and cinnamon.
What did the family think? Only two of us ate these, but we both liked them. The only thing I would change is that I didn’t like the cheese part still being cold when the waffle was nice and toasty. Maybe next time I will let the cheese filling sit for a while to get closer to room temperature before I start cooking.
