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.

Savory Cornmeal Waffles from @loveandoliveoil

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.

  69. My all time favorite waffles: sharp cheddar cheese & scallion waffles, cooked golden brown so that the cheese get all crunchy & nutty-tasting on the outside. Top with Ham & Turkey Royale – a creamy cheese Bechamel sauce with a little cayenne for kick, and ham, turkey, & porcini mushrooms! Good anytime – good everytime!
