A couple of weeks ago a food truck named Waffle-icious was near our house so we decided to test it out.
Well perhaps it was more like a food trailer, but who really cares they were serving waffles! I decided to go for their Savory Waffle which if a Liege waffle covered in Granny Smith apples, Brie Cheese, Roasted Almonds and Honey. Delicious! Just look at all those glorious apples.
If you’ve never had a Liege waffle, I hadn’t, you are in for treat. The waffle is coated with a pearl sugar that once caramelized creates a crunchy sweet exterior to the waffle. I didn’t know this about Liege waffles and my first few bites were a tad confusing.
After doing a bit of research it all started to make sense. Waffle-icious also sells bags of the pearl sugar if you want to make the waffles at home. I was a bit perplexed at first as to why they were selling bags of funny shaped sugar. Wasn’t the waffle covered in tasty toppings enough sugar? Did I need a bag of it too?
Check out this recipe for authentic Liege waffles on Liege Waffle. I also found the pearl sugar on Amazon.com $5.80+ tax in case you can’t find it in your local market. If you decide to give it shot let me know how it goes.
