Cheddar Cornbread Waffles (Gluten & Dairy Free)

I’ve been meaning to try this recipe out for awhile now. And i have to say….not only is it delicious, its super quick and easy to make too! I did cut it down so it only makes 2, which is perfect for us, since there’s just the 2 of us! But you can double or triple it or whatever you want to fit your needs. You can also make a big batch and freeze these, then just reheat in your toaster or toaster oven when you want one. Ive done this with other waffles and they’re actually pretty good! LOL I love cornbread, but it takes so long to bake compared to these tasty little guys! Plus, I got a new Belgian waffle iron for Christmas (thanks mom!) and it worked so so so much better then my old one! The secret ingredient in these is club soda if you can believe it or not!? And the great thing about it was there was leftover club soda so i dug out my flavored syrup and made us some Italian soda’s! YUM! It’s been awhile since I had one of those! Anyhow….these were a big hit with hubby….ya can’t go wrong feeding a man cornbread and chili right?! LOL  I bulked up some canned chili with some extra shredded pork we had leftover, but it’d be even better with home-made chili. I just didn’t have time ….and you can sub out the cheese for soy cheese to make it completely dairy free if you need to. So if you need a quick, easy, relatively healthy meal, give this one a try and enjoy! 🙂
