Savory Toppings for Waffles
We hope your summer has been full of lazy mornings at your favorite Minnesota lake and delicious brunch dishes to fill you up for busy day of boating and fishing.
While we love a great waffle with real, Minnesota maple syrup and a little butter, sometimes you want something savory in the morning. Or – you want breakfast for dinner.
That’s where savory toppings for waffles come in. These toppings are delicious any time of the year and many use ingredients made right here in Minnesota that you can find when you’re shopping at Coborn’s or having your groceries delivered by CobornsDelivers. We know shopping and buying local is important to you – so these recipes take advantage of the great farms in Minnesota and the delicious food they make for your table and your family!
Recipes Using Ingredients Made in Minnesota
We love fresh Minnesota sweet corn in the summertime. Minnesota corn on the cob is so good you really don’t need to do anything but steam or grill it. But – it’s also a great topping for waffles! This recipe for Herbed Sweet Corn Waffles invites you to cut the fresh Minnesota sweet corn right off the cob and give it a mix with some fresh or dried herbs. Then – you fold that mixture into your batter and make some delicious waffles. The kicker for this recipe is also the Apple-Jalapeno Syrup you drizzle on top. This syrup is pretty simple to make and can last in your fridge for two weeks.
If you love pizza and the kids are always asking if it’s pizza night at your house – try these Pizza Waffles! Adding cornmeal to the waffle batter gets things started in a savory direction. Then – add in pizza toppings and your favorite Minnesota cheese to really doctor up the batter. You just pour the batter into your waffle maker and let the batter get browned and cooked through. Slice up your waffles and serve with a warm marinara sauce and you have a dinner the kids will love.
This recipe from a Twin Cities food blog called A Good Appetite puts a Minnesota spin on Fried Chicken and Waffles, thanks to Minnesota-grown wild rice. The recipe for Minnesota Chicken and Waffles adds wild rice right to the batter (you’ll need to cook it first so just save some from another dish to save time). Make the waffles in a regular waffle iron and then get topped with a creamy chicken and mushroom sauce.
Pumpkin Waffles with Trail Mix Topping are the perfect meal when you’re ready for a little taste of fall. The waffles get a flavor boost from pumpkin (feel free to use canned pumpkin if you don’t want to use fresh Minnesota pumpkin) and making the trail mix is a snap. Use real Minnesota maple syrup in the trail mix, top with whipped cream made from Minnesota cream and you’re ready to enjoy this sweet and savory waffle that’s good enough to eat as dessert!
