In yesterday’s post I mentioned that I had made a crumb cake to use up some older milk, but that I still had some that needed to be used. Tonight I made these waffle-wiches and they were so good! You could make these sandwiches with pretty much any filling, although you might want to leave out the jalapeno if you are taking it in a really different direction. The waffle recipe is one I’ve adapted from a few I’ve read/tried and it is really yummy. I serve them with chile or huevos rancheros and now will be making waffle-wiches!
Cheddar Jalapeno Waffles
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup cornmeal
- 1 T. sugar
- 1 T. cornstarch
- 1 T. baking soda
- 1/2 t. salt
- 1 cup grated cheddar
- 1/4 c. chopped jalapenos
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/4 c. buttermilk (or sour milk)
- 2 T. vegetable oil
- In large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
- Lightly beat eggs and combine in a small bowl with buttermilk and vegetable oil.
- Pour egg mixture over dry ingredients and stir just until combined. Fold in grated cheddar and jalapenos.
- Prepare according to instructions that came with your waffle maker.
To make sandwiches:
1 batch cheddar jalapeno waffles
Leftover black bean soup and cooked black beans
Additional shredded cheddar cheese
My waffle maker makes the kind of waffles that are four squares in one big waffle. I use two of those smaller waffles for each sandwich. I placed the bottom waffle back in the waffle maker, added my fillings and then put the second waffle on top. Close the waffle maker and allow it to cook as you would a panini.Heat until cheese is melted and filling is warm throughout. Serve! These would be really great with salsa or a chipotle mayo as a dipping sauce.
