125 mL (1/2 cup) granulated sugar
30 mL (2 tbsp) water
45 mL (3 tbsp) lemon or orange juice
500 mL (2 cups) Europe's Best® Whole Country Strawberries (sliced or whole), thawed
8 waffles (1 pkg) Eggo® Plus Fibre waffles, toasted, as per package directions
250 mL (1 cup) ricotta cheese or plain yogourt
30 mL (2 tbsp) maple syrup, honey or brown sugar (optional)
Combine sugar and water in a medium skillet. Cook on medium heat, stirring, just until sugar dissolves. Brush any crystals down sides of pan with a pastry brush dipped in cold water. Cook, without stirring, for 5-8 minutes, or until mixture turns a caramel colour. Add juice. Bring to boil and stir until smooth. Add strawberries and let mixture return to boil. Remove from heat.
Place toasted waffle on plate. Combine ricotta cheese with maple syrup, if desired. Spread 1/4 cup (50 mL) ricotta cheese on waffle and top with 1/4 cup (50mL) strawberry sauce. Top with second waffle and drizzle with another 1/4 cup (50 mL) sauce.
