Cheddar and chive waffles

Makes 8 waffles
30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 240g of plain flour
  • 20g of semolina flour, fine
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 150g of mature cheddar, finely grated
  • 1 handful of chives, finely chopped
  • 2 large eggs
  • 100g of unsalted butter, melted
  • 460g of whole milk
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • pepper

To serve

  • butter
  • ham, or a fried egg, to top the waffles

Method

1
Place the dry ingredients into a bowl and stir to combine, reserving a pinch of chives to garnish
2
Beat the eggs in a separate bowl and add the milk and melted butter. Season with salt and pepper, then slowly whisk into the dry ingredients until you have a nice smooth batter
3
Turn on the waffle iron and wait until it has reached maximum temperature before ladling in the batter. Close the lid and cook until crispy and golden – how long this takes will depend on your waffle iron, but should be around 5 minutes
4
Serve hot with a sprinkling of chives, lashings of butter and ham, a fried egg or extra cheese
