Cheddar cornmeal waffle BLTAs

 (adapted from Martha Stewart)

Serves 3-4 (depending on the size of your waffle iron)

  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1½ tablespoons sugar
  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 tablespoons (½ stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • ¾ cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 6-8 slices thick applewood smoked bacon
  • 2 medium tomatoes, sliced
  • 4 leaves of lettuce
  • 2 avocado, mashed
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  2. Line a baking sheet with foil. Place the bacon on a wire rack over the baking sheet so they aren’t touching. Bake for about 15-20 minutes, until crispy.
  3. Preheat the waffle maker. Reduce oven temperature to 200ºF.
  4. Whisk together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and sugar in a medium bowl.
  5. In a separate bowl, combine the egg yolks, milk, and butter.
  6. Add the egg and butter mixture to the dry ingredients and whisk until combined.
  7. Fold in the grated cheese.
  8. Using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites until just stiff. Fold the egg whites into the batter.
  9. Pour about 2/3 cup of batter into the waffle iron (more or less depending on the size of your waffle maker).
  10. Cook until no steam emerges from the waffle maker.
  11. Transfer the cooked waffles to the warm oven while you cook the rest of the waffles.
  12. Spread about 2-3 tablespoons of the avocado mash on the bottom piece of each waffle sandwich. Spread about ½ tablespoon of mayonnaise on the top piece of each waffle sandwich. Layer tomato slices, bacon, and lettuce in between the two prepared waffles and serve.
