Recipe: Pear Walnut Waffle Topping
So I just finished my most fabulous breakfast and thought I'd share the recipe.
Or at least try.
I really don't "do" recipes, I just kind of play it by ear based of a recipe I may have watched on the telly, read in a book, sampled in a restaurant or imagined in daydream.
Usually the results are good. But sometimes (ask my friend Scott about the "fried" okra), the results aren't blue ribbon.
Happily, this is:
Pear Walnut Waffle Topping
Ingredients: 1 bosc pear, 1/8 cup chopped walnuts, 3 tablespoons of gourmet honey, 1 square of butter (a tablespoon or less , depending on your preference), 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1 dollop of whip cream
Slice up your pear into mouth size bites or whatever portion you feel is best
Place pear slices in a saute pan and heat up to 6 or 7
Add honey and brown sugar
Sprinkle on the cinnamon
Throw in your chopped walnuts
Let that marinate for about 3 minutes, stirring periodically
Stir and heat until pears are softened (still some firmness, but not rock hard)
Place on top of your fresh waffle (from a waffle iron, not those frozen suckers)
Add dollop of whip cream and bon appetit
