I'm a huge fan of salty waffles: they make a complete and light meal, and it's easy to make many at once. I recently threw a waffle party and these were everyone's favorite! If you want to be daring, place a few slices of bacon directly on the waffle maker and then pour the waffle batter on top. This is how the bacon combines with the dough.


1. In a large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a second bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, olive oil, melted butter, and chilli, then add the liquid to the flour mixture. Mix everything well to form a smooth batter and finally gently stir in the grated cheese.

2. Turn on the waffle maker and let it get hot. Pour a ladleful of batter onto the hot iron. Bake the waffles until they are crispy brown (approx. 5:30 minutes). If you like, put a few slices of bacon directly on the waffle iron and then pour the waffle batter over them.

3. Serve the waffles with a dollop of sour cream and a garnish of chives and spring onions.
