Waffles aren’t just for breakfast. Make these savory Cornmeal Cheddar Waffles the next time you’ve got leftover Pulled Pork for a delicious new dinner idea!
The last time the bambino and I went grocery shopping, I looked for and bought the biggest pork butt I could find. It set me back about $13, but we get more than one meal out of it, so it’s not as outrageous as it seems. I cooked it the slow cooker, and we had sandwiches. There was still about half left, so I started thinking of something else I could do with it. Savory waffles came to mind, after I scrolled through the blog and remembered how tasty this recipe had been. I also have chicken and waffles on the brain.
I had cheese, I’ve been looking for things to do with my cornmeal, so I made Cheddar Cornmeal Waffles. And then topped them with leftover pulled pork.
I also added more cheese (because why not?) and some pickled jalapeños. I also used my favorite BBQ sauce. These waffles are SO SO SO good. I even tried one just as-is with a bit of butter and syrup, and they were just as good that way (which is how the bambino ended up eating his). And as there were a couple waffles left, they wound up as breakfast the next morning.
Next time, though, I might chop up and add the jalapeños to the waffle batter itself.
