Cornbread Waffles Recipe

This cornbread recipe is the perfect blend of savory and sweet! Top with butter, syrup, honey or your favorite chili for a delicious brunch or dinner.

Butter up your waffle iron and get ready to enjoy this delicious idea for savory cornbread waffles!

If you love Belgian waffles like I do, you are going to love this savory take on traditional waffles.

Savory waffles are perfect for a quick breakfast or as a side dish to your dinner recipes. They’re also great when you want something a little different, savory instead of sweet. These cornbread waffles are unbelievably easy and so delicious! You can serve them with maple syrup, honey, butter and jam, or may we recommend chili?  

The combination of sweet corn bread batter mixed in with the savory spices from our homemade recipe always leaves my taste buds tingling. 

With the cool days upon us, I am ready to start whipping up all of those cooler weather comfort recipes again. These Cornbread Waffles hit the spot every time!

Cornbread Waffles have such a light and fluffy texture that it makes the perfect vessel for anything you want on top!

The best part is you need just THREE ingredients: Bisquick, eggs and butter (plus salt & pepper), making it perfect for those nights when you don’t feel like cooking but dinner still needs to be on the table in less than an hour. All of these things are basic pantry ingredients at my house so I never have trouble throwing together a quick meal while also having enough time left over from work or errands before bedtime. 

Plus with cornbread being one of the most recognizable breads around, kids can’t help but love eating their meals differently too! How easy is that?
