Savory buttermilk waffles and melted cheese make a delicious grilled cheese sandwich. These are easy to make and fun to eat!

Ingredients

  • large egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup butter melted 
  • tsp vanilla
  • cup  all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 10  slices white cheddar cheese

Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, butter, and vanilla. Add in flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and mix until batter is just about smooth.
  • Spray your waffle iron with a non-stick cooking spray and then preheat it. Use slightly more than 1/3 cup of batter (for a standard 8-inch round waffle iron). Cook until waffles are golden brown and crispy. 
  • Slice finished waffles into quarters. Place a slice of cheese on half of the waffle pieces and place another waffle on top of each one. Place the waffle sandwiches back on the grill and heat until center cheese is melted (it's okay that your waffle iron won't be able to close completely). Serve warm.
