Lately I have been obsessed with waffles. I’m blaming Gina. When she went away to Europe I asked her if I could borrow her waffle iron and have been making waffles nonstop. This is the first post you will see with waffles but be prepared – there are more.

A lot more.

These waffles are not like your typical breakfast waffle. They are savory, just a little spicy and packed full of cheese and sausage. I also topped the whole thing with a fried egg because I like to top anything with a fried egg. I’m wild and crazy like that.

I’m teaming up again this year with Jones Dairy Farm so I used their All Natural Golden Brown Mild Pork Sausage Patties for these waffles. It’s precooked so it makes making the waffles even easier!

Oh, and don’t skip that little drizzle of sriracha on the top. Sriracha is totally the maple syrup of the savory world.

    Hi Brandy!

    I’d love to include your cheddar sausage cornmeal waffle recipe in a waffle roundup I’m doing for Parade Magazine.

    If you’re fine with that, could I use one of your gorgeous photos with a link back to your original post (https://www.nutmegnanny.com/2014/09/19/cheddar-sausage-cornmeal-waffles/)?

    Thanks in advance dear!

    • nutmegnanny replied: — October 14th, 2015 @ 9:32 am
