  • 1 ¾ cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • 2 teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

  • 1 cup buttermilk or sour milk

  • ½ cup milk

  • ½ cup vegetable oil

  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh basil or sage

  • 1 cup chopped Roma tomatoes, (2 medium)

  • 3 ounce white cheddar cheese, shredded (3/4 cup)

  • 6 slices bacon, crisp-cooked and chopped

  • Ground black pepper

  • Additional fresh basil, chopped tomato, and/or chopped bacon (optional)


  1. In a large bowl stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a medium bowl combine eggs, buttermilk, milk, and oil. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened. (Batter should be slightly lumpy.)

  2. Lightly grease waffle baker and preheat. Add batter to waffle baker according to manufacturer's directions, reserving a few tablespoons. Sprinkle with some of the basil, tomato, cheese, bacon, and pepper. Spoon reserved batter on top to mostly cover toppings. Bake until golden. Repeat with remaining batter. If desired, top with additional basil, tomato, and bacon. Serve with pepper jelly (for sweet plus heat), honey butter, or sour cream. Makes twelve 4-inch waffles.


For sour milk place 1 Tbsp. lemon juice or vinegar in a liquid measuring cup. Add enough milk to make 1 cup. Stir; let stand 5 minutes before using.To make ahead, let each waffle cool, then layer between sheets of waxed paper. Freeze in an airtight container up to 3 months. To reheat, unwrap waffle and toast in the toaster until heated through.
