Method

Rashers

  • Place a pot of oil over high heat.
  • Combine the flour and braai spice in a mixing bowl.
  • Dip the rashers into the flour, then the buttermilk and back into the flour (ensure they are well coated).
  • Fry the rashers until golden and crispy.

Dip

  • Whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl.

Waffles

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  • In another bowl, combine the buttermilk, eggs, vanilla and melted butter. Pour the buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture and whisk until smooth.
  • Pour the batter into a greased waffle iron and cook until golden and slightly crispy.
  • Brush the waffles with the butter and toast them in a hot frying pan for one minute on each side to crisp them up a bit.
  • Serve the waffles spread with cream cheese dip and topped with crispy rashers.

TIP Use store-bought waffles to save time. Brush them with butter and lightly toast them in a hot pan before serving.
