The choice between savoury and sweet is the eternal brunch dilemma. I love these waffles because they strike the perfect chord between savoury and sweet. You don’t have to forfeit your delicious, salty bacon in service of waffles this time, you just combine the two.
Peaches and cream corn takes on a candy-like quality when it’s cooked up in the waffle iron. Monterey Jack cheese and a touch of cayenne bring a subtle heat.
Depending on your waffle iron, the heaping 1/2 cup of batter used to make each waffle won’t be quite enough to spread to the edges of the iron. I actually prefer this before it gives the waffles a bit of a rustic look.
With uneven edges, these savoury waffles look like something you might enjoy on a farmstead with eggs collected from the hen house that very morning.
If you want to dial up the sweetness, you can always pour over a healthy dose of maple syrup. I’m a strong proponent of this approach, I’m that person who asks for a side of maple syrup for my breakfast sausage. Nom nom.
In this recipe, the avocado lends a lovely creamy texture and makes your breakfast more worthy of Instagram – #avotoast. This savoury waffle is the perfect vector for the runny yolk of a sunny side up egg – so, put an egg on it.
