Bruxie Gourmet Waffles
When you have a blog dedicated to sharing all your favorite things, it’s hard not to start every post with “Oh my gosh, you guys!”
I really, really wanted to start this post with “Oh my gosh, you guys!”
Also hard: Limiting the number of times I use words like Fabulous! Life changing! and Gorgeous! per paragraph.
I do try. But it’s a challenge.
When I was visiting Jenny in California a few weekends ago, she showed me the menu for this seriously fun waffle stand.
They have sweet waffles, savory waffles, and waffles for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert.
I knew immediately that we were going to need one of everything on the menu.
Just check out this small sample of their fun offerings.
I mean really. They had a S’mores Waffle. It was sprinkled with crushed, sweet graham crackers, drizzled with warm, melted chocolate, and topped with gooey, oozing perfectly toasted marshmallows.
You know there’s no way I wasn’t saying yes to that!
Next was the Creme Brulee Waffle. It was:
- A perfectly toasted waffle.
- Covered with decadent creme brulee custard.
- Topped with sugar and bruleed, so it had that wonderfully crisp, crackly topping, and…
- Stuffed with impossibly gorgeous red strawberries that, I kid you not, were absolutely bursting with sweetness.
I don’t know if you know this about me, but fruit (and nuts) in dessert stand for everything I’m against in the world. I love fruit. I love nuts. But I don’t want them in my dessert. It’s a texture thing. And a sweetness thing. And probably a weirdo thing.
But this. Was. Fabulous. I can’t imagine it without strawberries. I needed those strawberries. As hard as it is for me to admit, I don’t know which one was my favorite — the S’mores or the Creme Brulee!
Next was a PB&J Waffle. How fun is this waffle? Tasted just like a toasted PB&J sandwich. Loved it!
Of course, we had to try one savory waffle as well. This is the Bruxie Hash and Eggs. It was a special of the day, and sold out in one hour! Good thing we got there right when they opened! It’s a prosciutto and pastrami hash topped with gruyere cheese and a jumbo fried egg. All wrapped up in a waffle.
If you are ever anywhere near Bruxie, any time of day, make sure you stop by. Fabulous food, generous folks, and seriously fun waffles.
