Sweet and Savory Waffles with pears, cranberries, pecans and blue cheese


I recently entered a recipe contest for EGGO waffles.  Here was my submission.  It is a sweet and savory adult waffle.  The combination of the blue cheese, dried cranberries,  pears and crunchy pecans made for a very satisfying breakfast.

**Note – This same combination of ingredients is wonderful over slices of toasted baguette for a very sophisticated bruschetta appetizer.  It’s perfect for the holidays!


I’m waiting to find out if I’m the big winner; my fingers are crossed.
