Recipe for Rosemary and Cheddar Buttermilk Waffles, a savory breakfast dish topped with a spicy Remoulade sauce. Servings consist of either 8 small square waffles or 2 large Belgium waffles.
This recipe was inspired by a rosemary biscuit sandwich I keep ordering at the local coffee shop. I decided to add cheddar to my rosemary buttermilk biscuit batter, (say that 5 times fast-“buttermilk biscuit batter”) with a thinner consistency and test the outcome in my waffle maker. Man that was a long sentence, ok moving on. The result I must say was 8 evenly baked, yummy savory waffles in just 16 min.

What is Remoulade Sauce?
Remoulade is a cajun inspired mayonnaise based sauce that is used for fish, bread, and veggie dips. The spice level totally depends on your personal preference.
