READY IN: 1hr 25mins




  • Preheat a waffle-stick maker or regular waffle maker.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, buttermilk, and butter.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pepper.
  • Using a stand mixer fitter with the whisk attachment, whip the egg whites on med-high speed until firm peaks form, 5-6 minutes.
  • Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the buttermilk mixture, stirring until just combined.
  • Gently fold in the egg whites, then fold in the three cheeses.
  • Ladle the batter into the waffle maker, using ½-3/4 cup batter per batch if using a waffle maker.
  • Spread the batter so that it almost reaches the edges of the waffle maker.
  • Cook until the waffles are crisp and browned, 3-4 minutes (if using a waffle-stick maker, follow the manufacturer’s instructions).
  • Using a spatula, remove the waffles from the waffle maker.
  • Cut whole waffles into quarters, then slice into sticks about 1 inch wide.
  • Serve right away, or place the waffle sticks on a baking sheet in a single layer in a 200 degree oven for up to 20 minutes before serving.
  • Serve with hot tomato soup, for dipping.
