Yep, that’s right. A blog post with a title that you can’t even pronounce. The picture might give you some clue though. It’s a waffle made from croissant dough. Hence the croiffle name. You see, much as a dog is not just for Christmas and cake is not just for birthdays, waffle machines are not just for waffles.
There is so much more you can do with them. As Mr B and I found out on Saturday when we decided to do a Croiffle Croque Monsieur. It takes just seconds to assemble, tastes amazing, and doesn’t cost very much either. So how do you make these thing of wonderment?
- 1 can of ready to roll croissant dough
- Bechamel sauce (I made my own but you can buy it if you like)
- 2 slices of ham
- 1 slice of cheese (gruyere if you can get it)
- Break off two triangles of croissant dough, trying not to split the two triangles apart, in fact push the two long edges together so you have a square with no holes in the middle
- Cut to fit the space in your waffle machine, in ours that means taking off about an inch to make it a proper square
- Place in hot waffle machine and close the lid, letting it cook for about 2½ to 3 minutes, or until golden brown
- Pour in some bechamel sauce so it pools in the holes made by the waffle machine
- Add the ham, you can shred it a bit if you want to be super fancy
- Place cheese on top
- Close lid and heat for 10 seconds, no more or you will be scraping it all off the machine and not putting it in your mouth.
They are delicious. And who knew croissant dough could be anything other than crescent shaped?!
