Wholesome Cheddar Waffles

Andy Anderson !


As I look out the windows, I see rain mixed with sleet falling out of cold gray skies.

Time to get into a nice warm kitchen and make something wholesome and comforting… Like Cheddar Waffles.

These are not your basic sweet variety of waffles… the kind that you lavish with syrup, jam, and butter. These are best suited for the more savory variety of meal.

My best way to use these is with something like creamed chicken… Chicken ala King style. Or with other savory dishes.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
