Equipment

Ingredients

  • ½ cup whole milk
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 medium eggs at room temperature
  • 1 cup tapioca flour
  • 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 10 tablespoons shredded mozzarella cheese (2 tablespoon per waffle) The total amount of mozzarella cheese will depend on the number of waffles you make which varies according to the size of your waffle iron. Mine yielded 5 waffles so I needed 10 tablespoon of cheese)!

Instructions

  • Heat the waffle iron well.
  • Meanwhile, blend all the ingredients together in a blender until obtaining a creamy, homogeneous mixture.
  • Lightly brush your waffle machine (both top and bottom) with oil, or spray with cooking spray. Then, almost fill the bottom with the blended mixture. Place 2 tablespoons of the mozzarella cheese on the center of each waffle and pour just enough of the blended mixture on top to cover the mozzarella.
  • Close the waffle iron. Let cook for about 3 minutes (soft, my favorite way) to 5 minutes (well-toasted).
  • Remove the gluten-free waffles from the waffle iron and serve immediately.
  • If you are serving them for breakfast or brunch, enjoy them with a pat of butter and a drizzle of maple syrup, or you can serve them with hard-boiled eggs or sunny side up eggs, a sprinkle of fresh herbs, bacon, sausage links, and fruits like berries.
  • As a dessert, serve them with dulce de leche and chopped roasted cashew nuts or guava paste sauce (snack).

Gluten-Free Frozen Waffles
You can freeze the gluten-free waffles in a sealable freeze bag for up to 2 months. But make sure to place a piece of parchment paper in between each waffle; otherwise, they will get stuck one to the other.
Reheat from frozen in a toaster until hot. Serve right away!
