Smoked Salmon on Cheddar Waffles with Dill Sour Cream

Smoked salmon is one of those ingredients that just doesn't get enough face time.  You probably walk by it in the grocery store every weekend and yet, how many times have you actually bought it?  I'm guessing not many.  Give it a try - it's salty, rich and good for you!  And I've got a great introductory recipe for you. These smoked salmon triangles combine several delicious components - a crunchy savory waffle, fresh dill sour cream and smoky salmon - a combination that's as satisfying as it is fancy.

I visited PHX last weekend and made these for my mom's UNO party.  T'was a great, unique hit.  Thanks, ladies, for being so adventurous!

Smoked Salmon on Cheddar Waffles with Dill Sour Cream

1 package smoked salmon
Cheddar Waffles, recipe follows
Dill Sour Cream, recipe follows
Fresh dill

Cut your waffles into triangles.  Add a teaspoon of dill sour cream on each.  Top with a small slice of smoked salmon and garnish with fresh dill.  

Cheddar Waffles

2 C. Baking Mix
1 3/4 C. Milk
3/4 C. Shredded cheddar cheese
2 Eggs
2 T. Melted butter
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
Non-stick baking spray

Preheat your waffle iron.  

Combine all ingredients except baking spray in a large bowl.  Mix until smooth.  Spray the waffle iron with non-stick baking spray.  Follow the waffle iron's instructions to bake your waffles.  You want them slightly more crunchy than a traditional breakfast waffle.  The cheese will help you with this.  

Dill Sour Cream

1 C. Sour Cream
4 T. fresh dill, chopped
1 T. Mayonnaise (optional)
Squeeze of lemon juice
Pince of Salt & Pepper

In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients.  Place in the fridge for a couple hours so those flavors can marry.
