Cheese & Jalapeno Waffles

Cheese and Jalapeno Waffles

Fried chicken and waffles are no doubt synonymous with the American South, but may have had their origins elsewhere. There are some who theorise the Dutch immigrants brought over waffle makers in the 1600’s and that the popularity spread nationwide from Pennsylvania.

However, the first time the dish was on a menu was in 1938 at Wells’ Supper Club in Harlem, which has since closed, but the dish is still highly regarded, and a brunch favourite in many restaurants, and it’s not difficult to realise why. The slightly sweet waffle, and the crunchy salty chicken with the slightly sweet bitterness of maple syrup is an absolute family favourite and I hope this waffle recipe may encourage you to try it for the first time if you haven’t before. 

These spicy waffles also go really well with bacon and egg, so make your own waffle dishes and tag us on Twitter or Instagram. We love to see your creations!

Ingredients

Method 

1. Heat the waffle maker according to instructions.

2. Mix the flour and bicarbonate with salt and pepper.  

3. Stir in the grated cheese then make a well in the middle. 

4. Crack the eggs into the well, along with the melted butter and mix well with a balloon whisk, slowly adding the milk until you get a smooth, thick batter. 

5. Spoon the mixture into your waffle maker and add your preferred amount of candied jalapeños rings before closing the lid. 

6. They will cook in around 5 minutes, and if you’re making a batch, keep your waffles warm in the oven until serving. 

7. Plate up your waffle, top with your fried chicken, some softened butter and a drizzle of maple syrup, or for added piquancy, a spoonful of Hot Relish!
