This is a very hardy breakfast, or lunch, or dinner… up to you.

The recipe gives you the ingredients to make the cornmeal waffles, it is up to you what you top them with. My choice was chili, and a nice sunny-side-up egg.

FYI: Because of how these waffles are made, they can be frozen, and reheated when needed.

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

How to Make Breakfast Essentials: Cornmeal Waffles with Chili

Step-by-Step

  1. PREP/PREPARE
  2. Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
  3. Whisk the wet ingredients (milk, egg, melted butter), in a small bowl.
  4. Combine the dry ingredients (flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt), in another bowl.
  5. Chef’s Note: Add the optional ingredients, if using.
  6. Add the dry ingredients to the wet.
  7. Whisk to combine.
  8. Allow the ingredients to rest for 10 minutes. This will give the cornmeal the chance to absorb some of the liquid.
  9. Prep your waffle iron.
  10. Add about a 1/4 cup of batter to the waffle iron.
  11. Chef's Note: The amount of batter used will be determined by the size of your waffle iron.
  12. Cook until nice and toasty.
  13. PLATE/PRESENT
  14. Add some of your favorite savory toppings. I chose some good homemade chili, and a nice sunny-side-up egg. Enjoy.
  15. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
