Savory Cheddar Herb Waffles

This is a delicious cheesy version of classic waffles! Totally delicious served simply with fried eggs and some chopped fresh herbs!

  • 3 Tbsp oil or butter
  • 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh herbs (such as thyme, chives, basil), plus more chives for garnish

Directions

  • Combine dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine (flour through yeast)
