Welcome to Lia Rose Simply Home! In today's blog post, we're diving into the delightful world of homemade cheddar waffles – a scrumptious treat that's not only perfect for breakfast but also makes for a quick and satisfying lunch or dinner. Whether you choose to pair these cheddar waffles with leftover chicken or indulge in the classic BLT these cheesy waffles are sure to tantalize your taste buds and leave you craving for more.

This homemade cheddar waffle recipe is the ideal dish for hot summer months. No need to worry about heating up the kitchen with the oven or stove top. All you need to make these delightful chedder waffles is a waffle iron.

I purchased an inexpensive waffle iron from Walmart for $5 on Black Friday and it works wonderfully! It may be small, but it's mighty and doesn't take up too much room in my cupboard.

There are various types of waffle irons, including cast iron, electric, and modern non-stick versions. Some waffle irons come with adjustable temperature settings and cooking timers to ensure you achieve your desired level of crispness.

Similar to most kitchen appliances, waffle irons come in various styles and sizes, offering a wide range of prices. In my experience, I find that inexpensive appliances I don't use frequently tend to hold up well and work just fine.

Did You Know

Pre shredded cheese is coated with powdered cellulose and/ or other additives. Coating the shredded cheese with cellulose blocks out the moisture so the cheese shreds don't clump, and stick together. Pre-shredded cheese is convenient but brick cheese tastes better, melts better, and has a creamier texture. Shredding your own cheese is a task that pays off. The texture and melting ability of the cheese noticeably improve, making the extra effort worthwhile.

Here are some helpful tips for making waffles:

1. Avoid over mixing the batter, a few lumps are perfectly fine.

2. The amount of batter you pour will depend on the size of your waffle iron. Be careful not to overfill to avoid overflow when closing the lid.

NOTE Closing the lid will cause the batter to spread, so there's no need to overfill the bottom grid of the waffle iron.


3. Keep your waffles warm by placing them on a cookie sheet in the oven at 200 degrees.

3. Before pouring the batter, preheat your waffle iron and lightly grease it with cooking spray or Crisco for easy release and crispy results.

4. Make a double batch and freeze your homemade waffles for up to three months.

When properly stored in an airtight container or freezer bag, homemade waffles can be frozen for up to 3 months. After three months, their quality may start to decline, and they might develop freezer burn, affecting their taste and texture. It's a good idea to label the container with the freezing date, so you can keep track of how long they have been frozen and consume them before their quality degrades too much.

This waffle recipe calls for the eggs to be separated beforehand. The yolks are mixed in with the other wet ingredients and the egg whites are whisked separately, then folded into the batter. This method helps the waffles to rise during cooking, making them lighter and fluffier. You can prepare this recipe without the need to separate the eggs. While the waffles might not be as light and airy as the separated version, they will still be delicious and enjoyable.
