In a large mixing bowl, whisk the egg yolks together with the Greek yogurt. Add the milk and softened butter and continue stirring until consistent.

Sift the whole wheat flour, baking powder, and salt into the wet ingredients, then gently fold the batter together until just combined, careful not to overwork it–it may seem fairly dry at this point, but trust the process. Use a fork to crumble the Feta into the bowl, and then to spread it throughout the batter, leaving clumps.

In a stand mixer or in a bowl with a hand mixer, whip the egg whites, starting slow and then building up the speed until soft peaks form. Fold the egg whites into the batter.

To cook the waffles, heat an iron to medium and spoon 2 oz of the batter into the center. Close and cook for 8 minutes–you may need to adjust timing based on your specific waffle maker, but cooking a little longer under lower heat will help to ensure these cook all the way through.

While the waffles are cooking, combine 4 oz Feta cheese in a food processor or blender with the olive oil, salt, lemon zest, and half of the lemon juice. Blend until smooth and creamy, then taste and adjust with more salt or lemon juice, as desired.

To serve, spread a generous spoonful of whipped Feta over a waffle and top with your choice of ingredients. Prosciutto with olive tapenade, confit tomatoes and garlic, asparagus – or mix and match so that each waffle offers a unique bite.
