Finland,  Pancakes&Savory Waffles,  Waffle Wednesday

Suolaiset vohvelit – Salty Waffles

To start of 2022’s Waffle Wednesdays, here is a Finnish variation of waffles – Suolaiset vohvelit or Salty Waffles. These work great as a breakfast waffle or a snack. Great savory waffles that get their flavor from the cheese! 

As I have mentioned in previous waffle entries, please keep in mind that for Finnish waffles, or Scandinavian waffles in general, you will need a heart waffle maker. The biggest difference here isn’t that they’re heart shaped, but they are also a lot thinner than the usual American/Belgian waffles. A waffle maker like this would be perfect, and let’s you cook two at the time!

Yield: 8 waffles
