Marelie’s comments about this recipe:

Savoury waffles are a bit of a mind twist, and it is a dish you would have to taste to be convinced that it is really, really next-level tasty!

I made these strawberry & sweet gouda cheese waffles for starters when friends came over for a barbeque lunch the other day. The whole lot of them were almost angry upset when they heard it was only for starters. These waffles solidly stole the limelight from the barbeque lunch!

The best about this recipe is that it is so easy to prepare, especially when you buy good quality waffles, top them and bake them 8 minutes before serving. So next time, I will serve baked strawberry and cheese waffles as mains.
