Savory Cheddar and Scallion Waffles from A Whisk and a Spoon



Usually I don’t work on Fridays. Typically I have the day to myself. Sometimes I do errands or shopping. Occasionally I can find a friend to escape work and have lunch with me. Always I eat breakfast and watch episodes of House Hunters.

Breakfast du jour was a Savory Cheddar and Scallion waffle topped with salsa, sour cream and an egg. I treat myself right, don’t I? Actually I just pulled the waffle out of the freezer and reheated it. It was leftover from a “breakfast for dinner” night earlier in the week. That’s the beauty of a savory waffle…perfect for brekkie or dinner. It’s not weird, trust me. This one has a bit of a Southwestern twist to it– some cornmeal, scallions, cheddar, cilantro and hot sauce (I use a heavy hand with the Crystal). I was worried that the cheese might adhere to the waffle iron and act like superglue…it didn’t. I had beautifully formed, crisp-edged waffles with buttermilk tang and a savory flavor.

I’m trying to use my waffle iron more often. After I get past the annoyance of removing it from its styrofoam and box (yes, OK, I am an original packaging hoarder), making waffles is really fun. And eating them, even more. To read more and view this delicious recipe from A Whisk and a Spoon click on link:
