Cornmeal Jalapeno Waffles

I don’t know about you, but I’m always searching for new breakfast ideas. I tend to eat the same thing for breakfast week in and week out and I get burned out a lot on the same old stuff. At the same time, my body is picky AF about what I put in it so that limits the stuff I can eat, first thing in the morning especially.

Let’s see - very little sugar, very little fat, nothing with peanuts. Pretty sure that covers it but man does that limit things quite a bit.

SO when I heard about savory waffles, I had to try and figure out a recipe because that sounded like a match made in heaven for me. I am slightly obsessed with jalapenos, so I thought that would be a great place to start. I had some cornmeal hanging out in my pantry (because at some point I thought I’d give homemade cornbread and homemade corn tortillas a go but never got around to it, at least not yet) so that made the decision as to what to use as a base for my jalapeno waffles easy.

These waffles are SO easy and come together in a snap using stuff you probably already have laying around your kitchen.

One little note, though: These waffles are dry AF so they NEED a sauce. Some sort of syrup or serve them over a bowl of chili (oooooh). On their own, you’ll need a very large drink if you want to eat them plain (which you can, I did. The flavor is out of this world!).

Now that we’ve covered that, let’s get makin:

These could not be more simple. Here’s what you do: Chop the jalapenos. Throw everything in a bowl. Stir. Cook on your waffle maker. Done. Haha.

I didn’t take progress pictures because tbh, there just wasn’t much progress to document. These aren’t any more difficult than using Bisquick. Let me know what you decide to top yours with!
