Have you guys caught the waffle craze that's trending in the food world right now?
It seems everywhere I look waffles are being turned into amazing creations, both sweet and savory. This excites me greatly, as I LOVE waffles. I mean, who could not love waffles?
Anyway, today I’m sharing my savory, super cheesy, Mexican-inspired waffle melt. OH YES, this waffles melt is everything... cheesy, spicy chorizo and obviously—yummy waffles! I added some serious toppings too—fried eggs, avocado, cilantro, fresh jalapeños and a little queso fresco. YUM.
Okay, first things first: You're going to need a waffle iron and some Bisquick®. Prepare the Bisquick® waffle batter and then stir in a pinch of salt and pepper, some shredded cheddar cheese, and some shredded Monterey Jack cheese. Let the batter sit for 5-10 minutes while you cook the chorizo.
Brown the chorizo in a skillet and then add a green bell pepper and a handful of spinach. You can really use any combo of veggies you like here, but I favor the spinach and pepper combo!
Now cook your waffles according to the iron's directions.
Place half of the waffles back in the iron (my waffle iron makes 6 waffles total) and then layer on the chorizo mixture and the fontina cheese.
Add another waffle over the top of each to create a sandwich.
Carefully close the waffle iron and cook until the cheese is melted and gooey.
Top with all your favorite toppings, then slice in half if you want.
I like fried eggs, sliced avocado, cilantro and jalapeños.
