fig, honey + ricotta waffles


this post was created in partnership with saputo! the opinions on this blog, as always are my own. you can follow ingredients by saputo on facebook, instagram + pinterest for more recipe inspirations.

are you a sweet or savoury breakfast lover? while i fall on the savoury side of things, i can't resist waffles! i love piling them high with fruit, syrup & whipped cream. always a little whipped cream! this season i will be partnering with saputo to share two of my go to entertaining breakfast/brunch recipes. first up are these crispy ricotta waffles made with saputo's ricotta florella. the ricotta makes for the fluffiest waffle & you don't need to go through the hassle of separating the eggs. no whipped egg whites required! i added walnuts to the batter for a little crunch, sweetened them with honey & topped them with a mound of fresh figs. i've said it before & i will say it again, figs are *so* pretty. i can't get enough of them! they make just about any dish present beautifully.

stay tuned next month when i share my go to savoury breakfast bake! hint: it involves bacon & spinach
