Lately, I have been experimenting several times with potato waffles. But up to now I didn't have enough fantasy to make a nice blog post out of it. That was until last Saturday, when I visited Stralsund, a nice little German town at the coast in the North of Germany. There I drank a cup of coffee in Café 66. Besides coffee, they had a nice assortment of sweet and savory Belgian waffles. No potato waffles, but the toppings inspired me for these savory potato waffles with figs and plum compote.
As mentioned before, I have been thinking of making something surprising with potato waffles for some time already. In fact I made one recipe already, with chicken and chicory. But it wasn't ready to publish yet. But for sure, you will see this on surprising.recipes some day (soon). Stay tuned!
But it was after visiting Café 66 in Stralsund that I really knew what and how to make my savory potato waffles with figs and plum compote. They have a big assortment of Belgian waffles with sweet and savory toppings. You can find them in this online menu. On of their toppings gave me the final inspiration for this recipe.
Potato waffles can also perfectly be served as a side dish, like fries or Hasselback potatoes. However I would advise to make smaller waffles, and not the big sized Belgian waffles.
If you speak Dutch, you can find the Dutch version of this recipe on gerechtenweb.blog.
