Ingredients

  • 225 g | 8oz plain all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp cornflour cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
  • 1 tsp garlic salt or table salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 large eggs separated
  • 370 ml | 12 1/2 fl oz whole milk + 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 60 g | 2oz salted butter melted and cooled
  • 100 g | 3 1/2 oz finely grated mature cheddar cheese
  • 6 large slices smoked back bacon cut in half lengthwise to create 12 strips
  • 3 to matoes sliced thinly optional
  • cooking spray to grease waffle maker optional
  • salt and pepper to season
  • maple syrup to serve optional

Instructions

  • Whisk the egg whites with a pinch of salt until you have stiff peaks.
  • Place the flour, cornflour, parsley, garlic salt and baking powder in a bowl. Mix together using a balloon whisk.
  • Mix the milk, melted butter, egg yolks and grated cheese together in a measuring jug and gradually beat into the dry ingredients until the batter is smooth.
  • Fold in the whisked egg whites.
  • Preheat your waffle maker and spray with cooking oil (if indicated by instruction manual).
  • Lay 2 strips of bacon directly on the waffle maker (and a couple of slices of tomato if using) then add a ladleful of the batter on top. Don't add too much as it will spread out when you close the lid of the waffle maker.
  • Cook for 3-4 minutes or until the waffle is golden and crisp. Repeat until all the batter is used up.
  • Serve topped with eggs (optional) or with a drizzle of maple syrup.

Notes

Keep any leftovers in the fridge and reheat in your toaster.
