Cheddar Jalapeno Cornbread Waffles

Southern comfort food gets reimagined and de-glutenized in this sandwich in waffle form – crispy, cheesy, savoury, and full of big flavours. I’ve made two versions here – one vegetarian and with spicy turkey sausage. Either way, these waffles are perfect for breakfast and brunch, or alongside a steamy bowl of Mexican tomato soup.
