Waffles with Asian pears and prosciutto

Can you feel it?

Fall is in the air!

At least for now, who knows what it’ll feel like tomorrow, but yesterday we were craving warmth and deliciousness. So we made waffles and soup, and the waffles, woah. They were a blissful combination of sweet and savory and happiness:

Prosciutto Waffles

What you’ll need:

2 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking flour

2 tablespoons sugar (we used vanilla bean sugar)

1 heaping teaspoon of poudre douce

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 eggs, separated

2 cups milk

4 to 6 tablespoons melted butter

1 1/2 – 2 cups Asian pears, cut into little cubes

At least 6 strips of prosciutto cut into smaller pieces

Combine all dry ingredients. Beat egg whites until they are stiff but not dry, set aside. Beat egg yolks, add milk and mix with dry ingredients only enough to blend them. Add melted butter. Fold in egg whites and asian pears, mixing only enough to incorporate. Pour batterΒ into your waffle iron according to the iron’s instructions and layer with a strip or two ofΒ prosciutto, close iron and let cook.

Serve with fruit, roasted veggies, or a nice warm soup and enjoy!
