Adding another serving of fruit at breakfast is a healthy way to start the day. Both kids and grownups will enjoy these mango-topped waffles. The orange/yellow- fleshed mango is a rich source of vitamins A and C—antioxidants that promote a healthy immune system and protect against cancer.

Ingredients

1 ripe mango, peeled, pitted and finely diced, divided
3 tbsp. sugar, divided
2 tbsp. raisins
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
8 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
1 cup milk
1/2 cup coconut milk

Steps

  1. Set aside 3 tbsp. mango. Toss remaining mango, 2 tbsp. sugar and raisins in a med. bowl. Cover and let stand about 90 min. to make compote.
  2. Whisk flour, remaining 1 tbsp. sugar, baking powder and salt in large bowl to combine. Make a well in center and pour in melted butter, milk, eggs and coconut milk. Whisk just until smooth. Mix in the 3 tbsp. reserved diced mango.
  3. Per order: Spoon about 2 heaping tbsp. batter into center of each quadrant of preheated waffle iron and close. Cook the waffle until golden brown.
  4. Serve waffles hot, topped with about 2 tbsp. mango compote.

Febin Bellamy, a senior at Georgetown University, is the founder of Unsung Heroes, a nonprofit that features service workers on college campuses in man-on-the-street-style Facebook interviews.

bolognese sauce

We’re trying to bring scratch cooking to all the elementary schools, but we’re taking it dish by dish. Right now, we satellite a lot of the dishes out. This month we made a Bolognese from scratch, and went to each of the schools to talk to them about the process and see if they could implement it. It helps us find out the hurdles and what they are going to need to make it work.

Ensuring that employees regularly complete the busywork missing from their daily checklist can be a challenge, but these tasks often help an operation run efficiently with fewer unexpected costs. At Methodist University Hospital in Memphis, Tenn., Regional Executive Chef Dustin Cochran has found a solution to ensure his walk-in coolers always have a clean vent. Cochran starts with a thorough cleaning of the vent, then slips a hairnet over it to catch the dust. Instead of getting employees to deep clean the vents, they need only replace the hairnet.

chicken and waffles

Our elementary menu is currently riding the breakfast-anytime advertising trend by offering Breakfast for Lunch every Tuesday. It ranks as our highest participation, and it was a great way for us to introduce chicken and waffles inspired by an IHOP dish.
