Description

You are going to love this savory take on waffles! Cornbread waffles with pulled pork, beans, and slaw is a mind-blowing combination of all kinds of favorite Southern staples in one easy recipe.


Scale

Ingredients

For the waffles:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup light oil, such as canola, avocado, or vegetable

For toppings:


Instructions

  1. Plug in your waffle iron, and get it heating (I have found that the deep wells of a Belgian-style waffle maker work great for this recipe).
  2. In a large bowl, add the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to combine.
  3. Make a well in the center of the dry mixture, and add the buttermilk, eggs, and oil. Whisk to combine well.
  4. Cook the batter according to the manufacturer’s directions of your waffle iron.
  5. Repeat with remaining batter.
  6. When one waffle is done, let it rest on a wire rack, taking care not to stack the waffles (the steam they produce makes them soggy if you stack them on a plate).
  7. Serve hot with your favorite pulled pork sandwich sides and toppings. This is a GREAT way to use or stretch leftovers from another meal.

Notes

  • You can use store-bought buttermilk or homemade buttermilk. To make homemade buttermilk, add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice or white vinegar to a 2-cup measuring cup. Fill the rest of the measuring cup up with milk (to the 2-cup line, since that’s how much you need). Let the mixture rest for 5 minutes before using.
