Cheddar Cornbread Waffles

I enjoyed using my waffle iron so much last weekend that I decided to make some savory waffles.  I found this recipe in my new Southern Living 2010 Annual Recipes book, and I immediately thought to pair the cornbread waffles with our favorite chili.  

This was fun and made for a quick week night meal.  The chili cooked in the crockpot all day, and all I had to do was make the waffles when I got home.  Dinner was on the table in less than 30 minutes.  These waffles were equally also good with just some butter (or even syrup) slathered on them.

Cheddar Cornbread Waffles
Southern Living
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup cornmeal
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
3 large eggs
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup club soda
1/3 cup canola oil
cooking spray

Sift together first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Stir in cheese. Combine eggs and next 3 ingredients; gently stir into dry ingredients just until blended.

Spray waffle iron with cooking spray.  Spoon batter onto preheated waffle iron. Cook 3-5 minutes or until crisp and done. Repeat with remaining batter.

Transfer waffles to a baking sheet, and keep warm, uncovered, in the oven at 200° until ready to serve. Waffles can be frozen in zip-top freezer bags and reheated in oven or toaster oven.

  1. Super - absolutely super. After these two waffle posts, I'm going to convince Bev to break out the waffle iron or learn to use it myself.

  2. Why did I have to see this at 8am? I want to make it sooo bad now! I just need a darn waffle Iron.

  3. I made the Waffles of Insane Greatness last night. Excellent recipe from you (as always!!). These sound good too. Man - I'm gonna have to heat the waffle iron up again!

  4. WOW! Yum!!! I am not really a waffle lover but may have to purchase a waffle iron just to try these.

  5. You're crazy! But I honestly think this would be soooo good=)

  6. Awesome! I'm putting these on next weeks menu!! We had the waffles of insane goodness for breakfast this morning! They were insanely good!! I love all of your fabulous creations and recipes!! Thanks for sharing!!

  7. Now this looks like my kind of waffle! I'm not a sweet fan.

  8. I have been looking at your site for a whike and I'm loving all your recioes and this one looks so good I am looking forward to making this dish.

  9. When i have visited your blog and looking there nice recipes , which i love them thanks for sharing me your recipes .

  10. I got another thought seeing this and going to cut up a few onions to add to this batter and make it Almost Onion Ring Waffles... Just gotta do it... TY

  11. Just wondering...what does the club soda do to the batter?

  12. Made these today. The ended up being one of the lightest waffles we have made at home. The only ones that beat these require egg whites folded in. I believe its the baking soda and baking powder combined with the club soda that makes them real fluffy. I extra carbonated our water since we have a carbonator. I see no reason why you couldn't use still water but I think the texture would be more dense.

  13. Man I wish i had thought of the waffle iron when I had pinto beans and ham the other week!! this would have worked wonderful! I like to have some corn bread crumbled up into my beans, but my oven is broken so I couldn't make them, I'll know for next time!
