corn bread waffles - with only 5 ingredients

Corn bread waffles - This fun take on corn bread makes a great base for chili. And the best part? Only 5 real food ingredients. | realfoodsimple.com

Regular corn bread is the perfect side to a bowlful of chili, but waffle corn bread makes the perfect chili sundae!

These corn bread waffles are a fun and simple way to change things up for dinner. You can use pretty much any corn bread recipe, but the one I am including only has 5 ingredients!

Corn Bread Waffles (adapted from my favorite cookbook!)



Ingredients

2 eggs, separated
1 cup corn meal
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 Tbsp white whole wheat flour
3/4 cup boiling water
1 tbsp honey
2 Tbsp butter

Directions

Warm up your waffle iron.
In a stand mixer or with a hand mixer, beat the egg whites until stiff. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, sift together the corn meal, salt, and flour.
Pour the water over the dry ingredients, mixing well. Dough should be moist throughout.
Add the honey and the butter and mix well.
Beat the yolks and add to the bowl with the remaining ingredients. Mix well.
Fold in the stiffened egg whites.
Depending on the size of your waffle iron, pour some batter in and set to medium.
This is the waffle iron we use and I usually add about 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 cup.
