Corn & Scallion Belgian Waffles
Belgian Waffles studded with fresh corn kernels and scallions, topped with a fried egg and salsa! Makes 6 waffles.
For the Waffles:
  • ¾ cup plain flour
  • ¼ cup cornmeal/polenta
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp yeast
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup milk, warmed slightly
  • ½ stick butter, melted
  • 1 ear of fresh corn
  • 2 scallions
To serve:
  • fried eggs
  • pico de gallo
  • cheddar cheese
  • hot sauce
  1. Place the dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine.
  2. Add the egg and begin whisking, slowly adding the milk until a smooth batter is formed. Finally, whisk in the butter.
  3. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm spot to rise for one hour.
  4. Meanwhile, shuck the corn, and carefully slice down the cob to remove the kernels. Finely slice the scallions.
  5. After an hour, the batter should have swelled by about a third, and will look foamy. Add the corn and scallions and stir through.
  6. Bake the waffles according to the instructions on your waffle maker. (I used the 'medium' setting on mine)
  7. To serve, top each waffle with a sprinkling of grated cheddar (you can grill them to melt the cheese if you like) a fried egg, plenty of pico de gallo and as much hot sauce as you can handle. SO SO GOOD.
