Perfect Waffle Iron Omelet RECIPE FOR TODAY

Resultado de imagen para Egg Waffle Omelet

Perfect Waffle Iron Omelet

from Chef Kat

Equipment needed:

Waffle iron, mixing bowl, fork or whisk, knife and cutting board for jalapeño, pastry brush (optional)


  • 4 whole eggs
  • 1 tsp finely diced jalapeño
  • salt, pepper
  • 2 tsp chives or green onions, finely sliced
  • 1 Tbsp grated cheddar cheese
  • Non-stick cooking spray or melted butter with brush


1) Using your cutting board and knife, finely dice your jalapeño and set aside. Finely slice your chives or green onions and set aside.
2) In a mixing bowl, crack your eggs and scramble with either a fork or a whisk. Season with salt and pepper. Add in your finely diced jalapeño, your sliced green onions, and the grated cheddar cheese.
3) Preheat your waffle iron! When it’s ready (mine – an Oster Flip Belgian Waffle Maker with a ceramic coating – has a green light that says “ready!”) open it up and either spray the iron with your non-stick cooking spray (here are a few unique options: Avocado Oil Non Stick Cooking SprayCoconut Oil Cooking Spray, or just good ol fashion PAM), or brush melted butter on the grate.
4) Pour your eggs into the waffle iron, and close the cover. *If you have a fancy flip waffle iron, go ahead and flip it. However you would normally cook waffles – follow the same procedures for these eggs!
5) When your waffle iron gives you the green light that your “Waffles” are ready, open up the waffle iron.
6) TA-DA! Grab the eggs out of the waffle iron (they will be hot, you might need to use a fork or spatula) and place them right on your plate. You can top with whatever toppings you desire! We love ours topped with our Chipotle Pulled Pork on top!

100 gr. de arroz
500 ml. de nata líquida (crema de leche)
500 ml de leche
100 gr. de azúcar
370 gr. de leche condensada
Canela en rama
Canela en polvo
Corteza de limón
Paso 1
Comenzaremos este arroz con leche condensada poniendo 2 cazuelas en el fuego. Una con la leche y la nata, y la otra con un poco de agua (esta última que sea más amplia porque será donde finalmente se haga el arroz con leche condensada).
Paso 2
En la cazuela del agua que tiene que estar a fuego lento, pondremos el arroz con una pizca de sal para que suelte bien todo el almidón, ya que esto ayudará a que quede muy cremoso al final.
Paso 3
En la cazuela de la leche y la nata, que también debe estar a fuego lento, tenemos que poner la corteza de limón (recordad que no tiene que tener mucha parte de lo blanco, porque amarga y estropearía el arroz con leche condensada) y la canela en rama.
Paso 4
Después de 10 minutos cociendo la leche con el resto de cosas, tenemos que verterla a través de un colador en la cazuela en la que está el arroz. Una vez hecho esto, mínimo tiene que estar cociendo a fuego muy lento durante al menos una hora.
Paso 5
Pasado ese tiempo tenemos que poner ya el azúcar y la leche condensada y remover con constancia para que no se nos pegue el arroz con leche condensada, durante 5 minutos aproximadamente. Ahora tenemos que retirarlo del fuego y verterlo en una fuente para que se enfríe.
Paso 6
Una vez enfriado he hecho 2 decoraciones, la clásica espolvoreando canela por encima y una segunda espolvoreando azúcar por encima y luego quemándola con un soplete para que haga un efecto "crema catalana", pero puede que esta última sea demasiado azúcar.
Paso 7
Nada más por hoy amig@s, delicioso arroz con leche condensada. Mañana volvemos en Cocina Familiar con una nueva receta, espero que probéis pronto este postre y disfrutéis tanto como lo hicimos aquí en casa. Buen provecho!

Shrimp Scampi
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/4 cup dry white vermouth
1/4 teaspoon grated lemon zest plus 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 teaspoons finely chopped flat-leaf parsley leaves
Put the shrimp on a large disposable pie pan or paper plate and pat them completely dry with a paper towel. Arrange the shrimp so they lay flat and are evenly spaced.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper. Add the butter to the skillet. When the foaming subsides, raise the heat to high and invert the plate of shrimp over the skillet so the shrimp fall into the pan all at once. Cook the shrimp, without moving them, for 1 minute. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Turn the shrimp over and cook for 2 minutes more. Transfer the shrimp to a bowl.
Return the skillet to the heat and pour in the vermouth and lemon juice. Boil the liquid until slightly thickened, about 30 seconds. Scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Stir the lemon zest and parsley into the sauce. Pour the sauce over the shrimp, season with salt and pepper to taste and toss to combine.
Divide the shrimp among plates or arrange on a platter and serve.

Image may contain: food
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 to 1 1/2 pounds carrots, all a similar size and thickness, peeled and quartered lengthwise, tops reserved for garnish
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon molasses
1/2 to 1 cup water
2 tablespoons butter
1 sprig rosemary
In a skillet large enough to hold the carrots, heat the olive oil over medium heat. When the oil begins to smoke lightly, add the carrots and season with salt and black pepper. Using a wooden spoon, stir the carrots to coat with the oil and seasonings.
After the carrots have cooked for a few minutes, add the brown sugar and molasses and continue to cook, stirring from time to time. Add a little water so they can become tender without burning the sugar. Continue to cook until tender, about 5 to 8 minutes. Add more water, if needed, but the sauce should be thick enough to coat the carrots and should bubble around the edges of the pan. The carrots should be tender and fairly yielding when pierced with the tip of a knife. Add the butter and the rosemary sprig. Once the butter has melted remove the rosemary sprig and discard. Transfer the carrots to a serving bowl and garnish with chopped carrot tops. Serve immediately or allow to "rest" a little before serving.

Santa's Christmas Cookies ENGLISH RECIPE FOR TODAY

Resultado de imagen para Santa's Christmas Cookies
Santa's Christmas Cookies
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Gel-paste food coloring, optional
Royal Icing, recipe follows
Edible decorations, such as sprinkles or candy balls, optional
Royal Icing:
1/4 cup meringue powder
8 cups sifted confectioner's sugar
Special equipment: a squeeze bottle for easy decorating
In a large bowl, use a whisk to combine the flour, salt and baking powder. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar together on medium speed until light and fluffy, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and beat until completely combined.
Reduce the mixer speed to low and add the flour mixture slowly, about 1/2 cup at a time until finished, mixing until just combined. Form the dough into 2 disks and wrap in plastic. Refrigerate until slightly firm, about 1 hour, or up to overnight.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper, or spray with cooking spray.
Roll the dough out onto a floured work surface and use cookie cutters to cut out shapes, then transfer to the prepared baking sheets, leaving about a 2-inch space between each cookie.
Chill the cut-out cookies on the baking sheets for about 15 minutes before baking for a more precise shape. Bake until just starting to become crisp and golden around the edges, about 15 minutes. Remove the cookies to a rack and let cool completely.
Use food coloring to tint Royal Icing into different colors. To decorate, cover the cookies with the Royal Icing, then sprinkle on decorations while the icing is still wet. Let the icing set completely.
Royal Icing:
Add the meringue powder to 1/2 cup water in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment and whip for about 30 seconds. Slowly add the confectioner's sugar, and continue to beat until medium peaks form. If the icing is too stiff, add water a tablespoon at a time. Keep covered until ready to use. Transfer to a squeeze bottle for easier decorating.
Yield: 4 cups icing

Resultado de imagen para Chicken Stuffed Buns

Chicken Stuffed Buns
For the dough
Plain flour- 1 1/2 cups (plus enough to dust the work surface)
Wholemeal flour- 1/2 cup
Active dry yeast- 1 tbsp
Sugar- 1 tbsp
Warm water- 2 tbsp
Warm milk- 1/2 cup
Oil- 1/4 cup
Egg- 1, lightly beaten
Salt- to taste
Egg white or milk for wash
Sesame seeds- to sprinkle on top (optional)
For the filling
Minced/ shredded chicken- 400 gms
Onion- 1 large, finely chopped
Ginger paste- 1/2 tbsp
Garlic paste- 1/2 tbsp
Green chillies- 2, finely chopped (optional)
Tomato- 1 large, finely chopped
Kashmiri chilli powder- 1 tsp
Coriander powder- 1 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
Potato- 1 large, diced into small cubes
Garam masala- 1 tsp
Coconut milk- 1/4 to 1/2 cup
Coriander leaves- a couple of stalks chopped fine (optional)
Oil- 2 tbsp
Salt- to taste

Whisk together both the flours along with some salt and keep aside.
Take 1/2 tbsp flour from the mix and combine it with 1/2 tbsp sugar and yeast.
Add the warm water to that and mix well till the sugar and yeast has completely dissolved.
Keep aside for 10 minutes to activate the yeast. You would know its alive by the bubbles that form.
Into a large mixing bowl pour the milk, oil and remaining sugar. Stir to dissolve the sugar.
Tip in 1 cup of the flour mix and using a wooden spoon mix well till you get a paste like consistency.
Add the beaten egg followed by the yeast mix and stir it in.
Finally add the remaining 1 cup flour and stir vigorously till everything comes together. You can do this entire process using a mixer with dough hook attachment.
Otherwise, knead it well on a floured work surface for at least 10 minutes, till the dough is soft and pliable.
Oil the same mixing bowl lightly and keep the dough in it. Cover with a kitchen towel and leave in a warm place to rise. I preheat the oven to 100C for about 5 minutes, turn it off and then place the dough inside.
While the dough is proofing, get the filling ready.
Heat oil in a large frying pan and saute the onions till they turn a light golden brown in colour
Add the ginger and garlic pastes and stir for about 2 minutes or till the raw smell disappears.
In goes the chilli, coriander and turmeric powder. Stir for a minute or so for the spices to cook
Throw in the diced tomato/ paste and cook till the oil starts separating. This could take about 6 to 7 minutes on medium heat.
Add the diced potato followed by minced/ shredded chicken, season with enough salt and stir to bring all the ingredients together.
Cook till the chicken and potatoes are done and the water has completely evaporated. 
When it is more or less dry, add the coconut milk and stir well. Cook further till you get a semi-gravy like consistency. It shouldn't be too watery, nor too dry.
Sprinkle the garam masala and coriander leaves and give one final stir. Do the taste test, add more if required.
Once done, transfer into a bowl and keep aside to cool completely.

Once the dough has doubled in size, punch it down gently using your hands, give a couple of gentle kneads and divide the dough into 15 equal parts. (If you have an obsession like me, then weigh each ball to get the exact size)
Take a dough ball, make a small disc shape (either using your rolling pin, or stretch using your hands) and place 1 tbsp of the filling into the centre.
Wrap it up by bring all the edges together and pinch the top gently to seal the filling.
Try and reshape them into a perfect ball and place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
Continue doing the same with all the dough balls and keep them aside for about 30 minutes to prove again.
Towards the end of your proving time, preheat the oven to 200C.
Just before you chuck them into the oven, whisk the egg white a bit and brush generously on top of the buns.
Sprinkle sesame seeds (if using) and bake in the middle shelf for 10 to 12 minutes or the tops are golden brown and glossy.
Take it out of the oven, cool for about 3 to 4 minutes, arrange them in a bread basket and serve with all the Christmas charm you can muster up :)

Notes: If you cant get hold of chicken breasts, then get chicken breasts, slice them into small chunks and precook in a saucepan along with a pinch of turmeric powder, salt and 2 tbsp of water. Once cooked, shred them and use that instead.
If you plan on making the buns only the next day, then place them in the refrigerator overnight. Bring it to room temperature before proceeding with the filling.
