This hearty and spicy cornmeal waffle can be eaten any time of day and is a nice substitute for cornbread when it's too hot out to use your oven. You can also add thinly diced onions or red pepper flakes to the batter if you wish. I like to serve these with jalapeno jelly for breakfast or chili for dinner, and sometimes I eat them with barbeque sauce slathered on top.

This is an excellent savory waffle recipe. I did mix all the ingredients together and then fold in the egg whites instead of starting with the whites because that's how I think waffles are made. I used my waffle bowl maker and served a waffle bowl buffet with bacon, chicken, cheese, etc. Delicious! Read More

I made the recipe as written and this was super fun! I do not care for cornbread but made this for my husband. I did take a nibble but left the verdict up to the husband. I didn't care for the corn but he liked it. The one thing we agreed on is that it could use a tad bit more sugar. Other than that this was perfect! These are super fun and make a wonderful presentation. Read More
