Cornmeal Waffles

Cornmeal Waffles.  The idea sounded so nice. After all I have made blueberry cornmeal pancakes and blueberry corn muffins. Both were delicious. Waffles were the next logical step.

I was so excited to whip these up last Saturday. Work had been busy. Lives in general were busy. I just wanted a nice, relaxing weekend morning complete with a big breakfast. I wanted waffles.

These waffles were good but very filling.  Hearty is a good word to describe them.  So much so that it almost felt like lunch or dinner and not breakfast. Mr. J was not a fan. I didn't think they were bad just filling and hearty :) And not super sweet. I think there is a reason why a lot of cornmeal waffles are served with fried chicken. These are those kind of waffles.

Next time maybe a bit more sugar and a little less cornmeal.  I am still convinced blueberries and cornmeal make a great combination.
