- 20 (3/4 ounce) slices of Land O Lakes® Deli American
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 2 tbsp cornstarch
- 1 baking powder
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/4 tsp paprika
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 2 tbsp chopped chives
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 4 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
Preheat the waffle iron and the oven to 200℉. In a medium-sized bowl, mix all the dry ingredients.
In a separate bowl, add the chives, buttermilk and eggs and whisk together until just combined. Whisk in the melted (and cooled) butter and grated parmesan. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, making sure that everything is fully mixed.
When the waffle iron is hot, pour about 1/4 cup of batter to create each waffle. Close the waffle iron and cook for approximately 3 minutes, or until the steam stops spraying out of the sides. Use a spatula or your fingers to remove the waffle and repeat until the batter is finished.
Place the waffles on a rack and place that rack in the oven to stay warm and crispy. When you have finished using all of the batter, remove the waffles from the oven and heat the oven to broil.
Lay out the waffles on a cookie sheet. Place 3-4 slices of Land O Lakes® Deli American cheese (3/4 ounce each) on five of the waffles, making sure to drape them over the edge slightly. Cover with a top waffle and place under the broiler for approximately 1-2 minutes or until the cheese has completely melted. Alternate method: place the sliced cheese on top of each waffle just after it finishes cooking. Create a pressed wafflewich by placing a waffle on top and closing the lid. Slice each wafflewich into 4 equal squares, or serve whole.
