I love waffles ~ light and airy with a slightly crunchy exterior, each little divot presents the perfect little pocket for butter and syrup and fruit!
This recipe takes this classic breakfast staple in a more savory direction. Think of this waffle as the perfect carrier for sausage and gravy, chorizo and guacamole, fried eggs and bbq!!!
I toned down this recipe to make a very basic and very delicious cheesy waffle:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup masa (corn flour)
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons Chimayo Blend
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 stick of butter, melted and cooled
1 cup grated cheese of your choice (I recommend Pepper Jack or a nutty Asiago)
Combine the first six ingredients. Whisk together eggs, buttermilk, and butter ~ add this to your dry mixture. Stir until combined, add cheese. Cook in an electric waffle iron.
Eat these beauties all by themselves or serve with beans, salsa, avocado, and a fried egg!
