Cheddar Cornbread Waffle

It’s Worldwide Waffle Day! (whoever named it ‘International Waffle Day’ missed an opportunity, according to my husband)

We love waffles around here. But this morning I was not in the mood for the usual waffles with maple syrup. I wanted something slightly more savory.

I remembered I had a box of Jiffy® cornbread mix in the pantry & got an idea.


This post is not sponsored or affiliated with Jiffy®, I just really like that little box mix. It’s so convenient & makes really good corn muffins (& now waffles!). Jiffy®, if you’re reading this, please feel free to throw a few free boxes my way!

This recipe is so easy. You follow the instructions on the box to make corn muffins, but instead of putting them in a pan, you cook it in a waffle iron. Before you close the lid, sprinkle some cheddar cheese & then cook to crispy perfection.



Cheddar Cornbread Waffles

Makes 3-4 waffles, depending on size

  • waffle iron
  • 1 box Jiffy® corn muffin mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • cheddar cheese
  • cooking spray
  1. Preheat waffle iron.
  2. Prepare corn muffin mix according to package instructions.
  3. Spray waffle iron with cooking spray & pour 1/2 to 2/3 cup of batter into waffle iron. Before closing the lid, sprinkle cheddar cheese on top of batter.
  4. Cook for a few minutes until waffle is done. A good tip from my husband is to check the waffles when the amount of steam coming out of the sides of the waffle iron decreases. The cheese will crisp up & not be stuck.
  5. Spray the waffle iron between each batch. Serve with your favorite cornbread accompaniments such as honey & butter.

Bacon Waffle Sandwiches

Apparently we eat a lot of waffles in this house. And a lot of bacon!

Our friend from Sunday school recently posted a video from MyFridgeFood.com on how to cook bacon better. We are a little bacon obsessed in Sunday School. We are even planning a bacon-themed potluck at some point – stay tuned!

Last night my husband said he wanted bacon sandwiched for dinner, & since he is the designated bacon cooker (it’s one of the 100 things I love about him) he told me he had a great idea & not to come into the kitchen until he was done. He said, “You may have to blog about this.” So I told him to start taking pictures!

Once the bacon was in the toaster oven he let me in on the secret. And he told me his brilliant idea #2.

I am currently obsessed with the microwaveable Eggo waffle sandwiches. So my husband busted out the waffle maker & got to work making his own version. He is the best.

We didn’t go all out with eggs & cheese, just a little butter & syrup.

I just had to show off my new salt & pepper shakers!

They were tasty!
