Trifecta Sesame Seed Waffles
Over the sourdough starter experience, but still low key trying to be about it.
I will start by saying that I am pro boxed waffle mix. The photo above was made with them. The biggest mistake you are making with your boxed waffles (or pancakes) is by not adding more to them! My classic go to is a little vanilla and cinnamon, but you can't go basic during quarantine times! We have so much more time to kill 🙃
I'm going to keep the sourdough starter talk brief. This is not the blog to look for tips & tricks, but to vent about that finicky bitch. I did use some starter in this recipe to deepen the flavor (and use up discard) in the waffles, but it is by no means necessary when making these.
If you are not already a tahini feen, tahini is a sesame paste that rivals all nut butters and can be used in both savory and sweet recipes. So go buy a container, like, now.
These waffles are filled with three different kinds of sesame: tahini, sesame seeds and sesame oil. It makes for quite the toasty experience.

1. Turn waffle iron on! You want it hot before you get started.
2. Whisk all your ingredients together until combined (don't over mix).
3. To get the cute mini waffle look (in picture shown), I used just shy of ¼ cup of mix for each waffle.
4. Top with your favorite maple syrup and enjoy!
