Chili and Cornbread Waffle Dinner
So, I saw this idea on Pinterest and wanted to try it out.
I used my cornbread recipe (doubled it - the waffle maker uses a lot of cornbread batter) and put it in the waffle maker. I made this chili recipe and topped it with some cheese.
You guys, that is a lot of cornbread to eat! It's not like a waffle, cornbread is so dense and heavy. I totally didn't finish mine. I have a square waffle maker too, and gave the kids each a tiny square and that was a better serving size.
I probably won't make this again. I enjoy my cornbread plain with apple butter or honey. Or...
Back when we used to have left overs (before my kids started eating adult sized portions....), I would take left over chili, put it in a cast iron skillet, sprinkle cheese on top, and pour over my corn bread batter then bake! Now, that was super yummy!!!!! It was also better cornbread to chili ratio in a serving.
Weird fact about me: I love to eat cornbread batter as much as cookie dough or biscuit dough! Yummy!!
