Very good recipe! Definitely a keeper. I made some variations: put 1 cup of oatmeal in a blender and ground it up and used whole wheat flour for the rest. I then added the rest of the ingredients into the blender as we like the cottage cheese to be ground up w/o the big curds. Similar to other posts we also used oil instead of butter and added cinnamon and some vanilla. As we use a small round waffle maker we used 1/3 of a cup per waffle vs. half and when you put all the ingredients in the blender, the batter spreads on its own in the waffle maker.

Really enjoyed these! They are not as dry as regular waffles. Used sugar instead of honey and added some cinnamon and vanilla. These will likely be our go-to waffle recipe. Thanks!!

They tasted good, but the clean up afterwards was awful. The honey stuck to the sides of the waffle iron. My gourmet waffle iron will never be the same. The waffles were very hard to get out of the waffle iron too. Would not make this recipe again.

These were definitely different; fairly tasty. Mine were not crispy at all and I had a hard time getting them out of the waffle iron without them splitting through the center. I would add in a little vanilla if made again.

This is the best recipe to make Belgian Waffles! I substitute 1 Tablespoon of sugar for the honey and add 1 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract. I make one batch and freeze whatever doesn't get eaten in a ziploc. Whenever I want to eat a waffle, I lightly defrost the frozen waffle in the microwave. I then loosely wrap it in foil, place it on a metal tray and pop it into the toaster oven.

I just learned this trick for warm buttery syrup: In a small microwave safe pitcher or glass measuring cup I heat together real maple syrup and a small amount of butter. You use so much less butter and the coverage is better on the waffle otherwise you use tons of butter to try to get every nook and cranny covered. Anyway warm syrup is so much more yummy then pouring cold syrup that has been stored in the refrigerator.

I went looking for a recipe to use up some cottage cheese and am very pleased with the results. They are not as sweet as other waffles I have made even though I did add some vanilla and cinnamon. I did not spread the batter out, I let the waffle iron do the work. My waffles came out brown with darker spots where the cheese settled. No one will realize that they are made with cheese tomorrow morning. Thank you for posting.

Yummy! Made as directed and my family loved them. Got 8 soft, moist (not crispy) waffles. Cottage cheese really isn't noticable in the finished product but I could taste the butter in a good way. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

OK so these are my new favorite waffles! I used a wheat four/wheat germ blend instead of all purpose, otherwise made as directed- I love how crisp they come out! Thanks for sharing. :)
