Loaded Gluten Free Cornbread Waffles #SundaySupper

Jun 26, 2016
Loaded Gluten Free Cornbread Waffles combine bell peppers, onions, and garlic into a cheesy cornmeal batter, are grilled to golden brown perfection, then loaded with savory toppings. They're egg free too!.

Breakfast is a favorite meal at our house. So much so, that I usually serve a breakfast type meal for supper once a week. It seems we're not the only ones who love that morning meal either. People have come up with a special name for it, Brinner! So when #SundaySupper announced they were going to have a waffle themed event, in honor of National Waffle Iron Day on June 29th, I couldn't wait to share the savory waffle recipe I make for Brinner. Thank you to Sue Lau from A Palatable Pastime for hosting today!

Bell pepper, onion, garlic, and cheese are stirred into a gluten free cornmeal batter, that has the egg that is normally used replaced with applesauce, then the waffles are cooked to golden perfection, and topped with avocado spread, sour cream, feta cheese, chopped tomato, and cilantro. They come out soft in the middle, with just the slightest crispness on the outside. It's a filling meal, and perfect for those who are trying to squeeze a meatless meal into their menu once in awhile. If you want a little more protein with these waffles, they would be good with some pinto or black beans added too.

Loaded Gluten Free Cornbread Waffles


1/2 cup gluten free flour
1/2 cup stone ground cornmeal
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 red bell pepper, finely diced
1/2 sweet onion, finely diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/3 cup freshly grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup applesauce
2 tablespoon butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper, or to taste

1 ripe avocado
1 teaspoon cilantro, chopped
Juice of half a small lime
Sea salt to taste

1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
4 - 6 cherry tomatoes, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro, or to taste


Avocado Spread

Mash avocado in a bowl, along with cilantro, lime juice, and salt, stirring to combine.
Cover and place in the refrigerator until ready to use.


Preheat waffle maker to medium-high heat, or follow your waffle makers directions.
Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl and mix until well combined. If batter seems to thick, add a little more milk. You want it to be slightly thick, but pour-able.
Once waffle maker is hot, grease the top and bottom with melted butter or a little oil, then pour some of the batter into the waffle maker.
Cook until slightly crispy and golden brown.
Repeat with remaining batter.

Assemble Waffles

Place waffles on serving plates.
Divide the avocado spread between the servings, spreading over the top of the waffles. Follow with the sour cream, feta cheese, tomatoes, and cilantro, dividing them equally between the servings.

Makes 2 - 3 servings.
