Chives are folded into the waffle batter and sprinkled on top right before serving. We like our eggs sunny side up for dipping the waffle into but feel free to cook them to order however you prefer.

  1. What am I missing, besides milk/water?! If mixed as per directions, the batter is not pour-able, its just a thick clump of dough. I added 1/3 C milk, and it still wasn’t enough. I then added 1/3 C water. Perfect!

  2. Oh Liz–mention extra sharp cheddar cheese and eggs and waffles–I’m pinning and trying these!! Who cares if they are 11 smart points!!! I’ll probably have to put Colby on my husband’s waffle though!!????❤️
    By the way, how’s the move to your new house coming???

  3. Ummmm hello to my next brunch dish!!! My favorite waffle toppings are berries, maple syrup, and a little whipped cream. I’m a sweet-breakfast girl at home but when I go out for breakfast/brunch I love savory. So weird right? Thank you for sharing Liz! :)
