Savory waffles with parmesan in the batter. Top with skagen mix and these waffles work well as a snack on a festive buffet or as a starter. Should you end up with more skagen mix than waffles, you can use potato chips (instead of waffles) for a simple and quick snack. The waffles are made on a basic recipe with added finely grated parmesan or similar cheese (grana padano for example).

Skagenmix (skagenröra) is common in Sweden and is available in a number of different varieties. Shrimp, mayonnaise and dill are the basis and it is common to also have creme fraiche, sour cream and red onion in it.

These waffles are made on a base-recipe that I have used for a long time, although I also add some well-aged cheese - in this case parmesan, but it is possible to use other types of cheese as well. Because the batter contains cheese, it is quite easy to burn it and get a taste that you may not appreciate - test with different cook times and test what works in your waffle iron and what you think tastes best. I usually take these waffles a little earlier than other waffles as I do not want to burn them too hard. Together with skagenröra, I think it will be an excellent snack or starter. Other varieties that I think fit well with these waffles I insert below there should also be a picture of the options in this recipe.

The waffles can be cooked for a while before serving, but in that case let them cool on a wire rack before placing in the fridge. Also wait to put on the filling as it can otherwise be absorbed by the waffle and give some doughy waffles. I think you get the best results if the waffles are cooked an hour or so before serving so they can cool and dry a bit while the filling is placed on as close to serving as possible.

I have also used these waffles instead of bread for a simple cheese sandwich and it turned out surprisingly well. It may feel a little luxurious to exchange all your bread for waffles, but give it a try sometime.

In addition to the toppings I listed below, there are some other examples that I think can work really well. A good jam or marmalade that would otherwise have been used for the cheese plate should be excellent. Other toppings such as avocado, fried egg, bacon, grilled chicken, chorizo, turkey or a combination of any of these should also be tasty.

Some other toppings that go well with these waffles are:
  • Scrambled eggs, fried bacon and maple syrup.
  • Kalixlöjrom (roe of the small salmonid fish species vendace), creme fraiche and red onion. Luxurious and simple.
