Savory Cornbread Waffles are an easy, savory breakfast. This cornmeal creation is light and fluffy, perfect for topping with your favorite items like eggs, bacon, and cheese!
I waiver between sweet and savory breakfasts. More often than not, I turn to Vegas and say “sweet or savory?”
These cornbread waffles were the result of an indecisive morning. I wanted a waffle, but I wanted a runny egg. There was really no way this wouldn’t result in a strange but good morning.
It’s no secret that I’m a terrible southerner. I don’t like okra, fried green tomatoes, or cornbread (except for these Sweet Jalapeno Cornbread muffins). That said, I will use cornmeal in recipes. I’ve used it for protein pancakes before, why not waffles?
Cornbread in a waffle maker! I prefer it to cornbread because it’s not so dense and gritty. Using half cornmeal and half flour and incorporating Greek yogurt makes this cornmeal creation light and fluffy.
The eggs were made two ways – one for Vegas and one for me. I’ve been loving the crispy egg method lately. Vegas says it’s a burnt egg so I made hers more traditionally.
I make them in two small pans so they’re done at the same time. Makes it quick and easy!
I had half an avocado to use. It had gotten a bit brown over night, so I mashed it up into a quick spread. I love the texture combo of a runny yolk and some guac!
I added a bit of curry powder – a suggestion from a friend – and it was quite good! You only need a pinch. Vegas doesn’t like curry and she didn’t turn her nose up!
