I know what you’re thinking. And trust me, I was skeptical too. That is, until my first bite, when I realized how amazingly delicious these waffles are! I don’t think I ever imagined that I could enjoy cheddar and scallions on the same plate as maple syrup, but here we are. These waffles are the perfect combination of savory and sweet, and taste very sophisticated, even though they are incredibly simple to make. Just looking at the picture is making me want to make them again! They are definitely a new favorite for weekend breakfasts!
Cheddar & Scallion Waffles
1 cup all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 large egg
2 tablespoons canola oil
3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons whole milk
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese

In large bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients. Gently stir in all wet ingredients until just combined. Stir in cheese and scallions. Pour batter onto greased, preheated waffle iron. Serve hot with butter and syrup.
