Light and crispy cornmeal cheddar waffles are topped with a beautiful fried egg and tons of avocado pico de gallo for the BEST savory twist on waffles you’ll ever have!
We’ve officially crossed over into the savory dark side of waffles, guys. ^^^ and judging from appearances, we will likely be staying awhile?
Idk, the fried eggs and avocado pico de gallo drive a ridiculously hard bargain.
Where do you lean when it comes to sweet or savory for breakfast? I’m not the hugest breakfast eater since mornings are usually on the go for me, but when it comes down to it I’m alwaaaaays gonna lean savory.
…then possibly have a donut for dessert. ??
If you’re a savory breakfast eater like me, these waffles are gonna be your new obsession. And if you’re not a savory fan, well…these cornmeal cheddar waffles are definitely your catalyst.
First off, the WAFFLES. They are so ridiculously crispy and packed with cheddar flavors, I could probably eat them by themselves.
Obviously we’re not gonna do that though because fried eggs gotta join the party along with a small mountain of quick avocado pico.
I’m fooling no one with the use of the word “small” am I? Huge amounts of everything are kinda what we do around here.
^^^ seriously. Your new/only favorite waffle. ??
