We love breakfast in our household. The whole she-bang of eggs, bacon/sausage, hash browns, toast/waffles/pancakes and then top it all off with a fruit plate. The other morning we got out the waffle maker to whip up a quick batch of homemade waffles. It got me thinking if you could make other batters in the maker. I had already made a waffle sandwich but what about cornbread?
Two weeks ago we received a shipment of hatch green chiles out of New Mexico. We absolutely love these chiles and WE couldn’t wait to get our hands on them. This past year we made Hatch Chile Cheese Bread and this year I wanted to spruce it up by making some really delicious cornbread. It wouldn’t just be any type of cornbread made in a skillet or a muffin pan, this was going to be made in my waffle maker. Thats right cornbread with hatch chiles and cheese in the batter made in the waffle maker in less than 5 minutes.
Life just got so much better in the winter time with these hatch chile cornbread waffles.
I also made a quick turkey chili to have on top of the warm waffles. It was a great pairing and I definitely will be trying out other soups for these waffles. If you don’t want your soup on top of the waffles just place it in the bowl like usual and dip the waffle into the bowl.
