Crisp waffle with strawberries and creamThese light and fluffy waffles/pancakes are made with eggs and ricotta cheese. Eggs are an excellent source of protein. Ricotta is a soft cheese, usually made from cow’s milk. Like most cheeses, ricotta cheese is also a good source of protein, and this serving size of ricotta provides almost 15 percent of the daily protein required by a 150-lb. woman. Ricotta cheese is also an good source of calcium.
