It never really occurred to me to make savoury waffles until I had them in Prague and experienced how good they are first hand! These waffles have a cheesy flavour due to the nutritional yeast in them and act as a perfect base for an array of different savoury toppings making this a really versatile recipe!

For this recipe you will need a silicone waffle mould which are relatively inexpensive if you buy them online.Β I actually based this recipe on my baked blueberry wafflesΒ so you may notice the basic batter recipe is the same. I just removed the sugar and blueberries and substituted them for nutritional yeast, paprika and herbs to give it a lovely savoury twist.

Try these topped with avocado, spinach and mushrooms or in place of toast and hash browns on a fry up! Mine usually cook in 18 minutes but allow up to 20 as ovens do vary.
