Cornbread Waffle

  1. Preheat your waffle iron, and spray generously. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl, mixing well. In a separate bowl, combine buttermilk, butter, and eggs. Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just blended.
  2. Add 1/2 - 3/4 cup batter to the waffle iron, and cook until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

Green Chile Cheese Sauce

  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour, stirring until smooth. Cook a couple minutes, stirring frequently. Slowly add in milk, whisking well after each addition, until sauce comes together. Continue cooking until mix begins to thicken, about 3 minutes. Reduce heat to low, then add in remaining ingredients. Mix well, and cook until warmed through, about 3 minutes.

Extra Ingredients

  1. Cook eggs as desired. Cook bacon until crisp. Crumble bacon into bite-size pieces.


  1. Top each waffle with two eggs. Ladle on 1/4 cup cheese, then top with crumbled bacon. .
