Savory Cornmeal Waffles from @loveandoliveoil

Waffles aren’t just for breakfast, you know, nor do they always have to be sweet. They have a secret savory side that’s downright delicious.

We’ve already turned biscuits into waffles, so why not cornbread too?

Turns out cornbread waffles are pretty darn fantastic, if I do say so myself. While maybe not quite as crispy as a traditional buttermilk waffle, they have a tender crumb and nutty flavor that makes for a fabulous savory foundation. I mean, really, anything you’d serve with cornbread you could serve atop these waffles. Our favorite? The chili cheese waffles. With a dollop of sour cream and some fresh cilantro, they are a hearty and satisfying dinner, no question about it.

But these waffles are also great topped with a fried egg and hollandaise sauce or a salad of fresh and spicy greens. You can also mix in various herbs or cheeses into the batter itself for even more flavor.

Now, let’s take a moment to talk about this waffle maker.

Excuse me. Waffle BAKER.

I’ve used my fair share of waffle makers. I think I’ve owned 3 different models over the years. And this one is leaps and bounds above the rest. The waffles are wonderfully thick and perfectly golden brown. And it makes two waffles at once. I don’t think I need to present any arguments as to why two is better than one.

Just don’t overfill it.

Thanks to KitchenAid, I am excited to be able to give away one KitchenAid® Waffle Baker, valued at $149.99, to one lucky L&OO reader.

  3. I love sweet potato waffles…..not savory really sweet actually and pumpkin too!

  4. Waffle with strawberries and whipped cream 

  5. I made a guinness chocolate stout waffle with bacon, bailey’s whipped cream, strawberries, bacon crumbles, and chocolate stout drizzle…modifying a pancake recipe..so St. Patrick’s Day and so decadent! I also might have been a little drunk after that…

  6. Looking forward to seeing more of your pins on Pinterest @sswarts

  7. Favorite waffle has to involve strawberries in some way. :-)

  8. I really love waffles and bacon and maple syrup, simple, but yummilicious!

  9. Our favorite waffles that we make at home all the time with our little rinky dink waffle maker would be Chocolate Chip, Vanilla, Peanut Butter and sometimes banana waffles with peanut butter and syrup on top.  That is a huge hit in our house.  We love to make waffles but our waffle maker doesn’t work the best and sometimes burn them a little, but we still make them because it is a weekly tradition in our house.  We could def use a new waffle baker so we could make delicious waffles that aren’t burnt or taste burnt. Our kids love to help make different dishes so sometimes we experiment a little with recipes and add extra ingredients too.  Thanks so much for this AWESOME chance to #Win the Waffle Baker!  LOVE IT!!  Thanks again  :) Hopefully you pick us  :)
