Jalapeño Sourdough Waffles

I prefer savoury over sweet, almost every time. Jalapeño waffles seemed like an interesting idea to test out, so I gave it a shot!

It gives an interesting twist to breakfast, changing up the boring routine of the same 3 breakfast options every morning.


I added 1 cup sourdough starter, about a quarter cup cheddar cheese, a quarter cup of diced jalapeños, one egg, salt, and enough flour to bring it to the right “pancake batter” consistency.

To add a bit of protein, I scrambled up some eggs, added a side of bacon, and garnished with green onions, parsley, and freshly ground pepper.
