  • Wholesome ingredients for making waffles include fresh eggs and milk from Blue Highland Dairy in West Virginia, where the cows are grass fed. The dairy's motto is "Our Cows Graze."

Homemade Ricotta Waffles
Serves 4 to 6 

We feature raised waffles on special occasions at Pot Pie Farm; these lacy cheese waffles are a simpler, faster version of that morning treat. I borrowed this recipe from my artist friend and inspired cook, Linda Bills. The only change is substituting fresh ricotta cheese from Blue Ridge Dairy in Loudoun County, Virginia.

1/2 cup all-purpose white flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup ricotta or sieved cottage cheese
4 farm eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil

1. Place all ingredients in a large bowl and beat with a whisk or a rotary beater until mixture is smooth. Ladle onto a hot, lightly oiled waffle iron; cook until nicely browned. Serve warm.
