Sweet and Savoury Cornmeal Waffles

Back to School is only a week away. We want our kids to go to school with full bellies to make the best of their day. Mornings around here can be a struggle. mostly for getting my daughter to eat something before school. No one at my house really likes to eat first thing.  On a positive note, she will try a tiny piece of something before she says no. She loves waffles, so I decided to try and create cornmeal waffles and hope the texture works for her. It didn’t but that’s ok.

While I do prefer that my daughter eats before school, I know that shortly after school starts it will be snack time. The time she is normally ready to start her eating for the day.

Cornmeal Waffles

Sweet and Savoury Cornmeal Waffles

I have been growing a few herbs on my balcony so I could use in my cooking and baking. So for my waffles, I decided to add some of my rosemary and make a savoury but sweet waffle. My daughter suggested honey to make them sweet. So that is what I used.

Cornmeal waffles

I used about 3 sprigs of Rosemary by removing the leaves from the stems and chopping them up fine. Next, I prepared all the dry ingredients into a large bowl.

I pulled out another bowl and added the wet ingredients to it.

Next, I added the dry ingredients to the moist and blended until well combined.

I turned on the waffle iron and once it was heated up, I added about 3/4 cups of batter to the iron. Depending on the size you want your waffles will determine the amount of batter to pour. I left them in the iron until the steam disappeared and the waffles were a golden to light brown.

The waffles turned out soft and fluffy and had just the right combination of rosemary and honey.

Originally I was going to add both bacon and cheese into the waffle mixture but decided to leave them out. Instead, I added the bacon as a side and topped with this quick and easy apple compote I made.

Recipe Notes

Each waffle takes approximately 4 minutes to cook and the recipe makes 6 waffles or 24 quarters.

If you make enough waffles at the beginning of the week, you can freeze them and pull them out in the mornings, pop in the toaster and breakfast is ready. They will also make an easy lunch for days when you haven’t prepared one.
