Savory Sage and Cheddar Waffles

Waffles might be a breakfast food, slathered in sweet syrup, but they also make a great savory treat. Waffles are ideal for tartines (open faced stacked sandwiches). They also make great sandwiches filled with your favorite meats and cheeses.

This version makes a terrific “bread.” The sage and cheddar cheese flavors could compliment a wide range of sandwich combinations.

The key to making these waffles with success is not over-filling the waffle iron. The batter is thick and doesn’t pour out thin across the surface. Using a scoop to place the dough on the iron is a great way to get evenly cooked waffles that are uniform in shape.

About 2 cycles at a moderate heat setting give a nice exterior crust with a tender center that cooked well.

For storing leftovers you must cool the waffles completely. Then wrap each waffle in plastic wrap or foil and freeze for up to 1 month. Thaw at room temperature and warm in the microwave for a few seconds before enjoying.

You can mix up the flavors a bit, if you like, and create unique waffles. All you have to do is change the seasonings and cheese. Try substituting Italian seasoning and mozzarella cheese for a pizza style waffle!

5. Liberally grease top and bottom panels of the waffle iron, then place a 1/3-cup scoop of batter onto each iron section. Close the iron and cook until steam rises from the machine and the top panel opens freely without sticking to the waffle. Proper cooking usually takes 2 cycles at moderate heat.
