Cheese & Onion Savoury Oatbran Waffles…

Savoury waffles make a great alternative to sweet ones, these are a go to option for Shane to take to work as he either has them cold or warms them back up again by popping them in the toaster at work and he often adds other flavours and spices to them just to change it up a bit.

We use a waffle maker to make our waffles, if you over fill them they make a horrible mess so don’t over fill the cavities. However you can also use a silicon waffle mould and cook them in the oven, but the texture and overall outcome are different to being done in a machine and they taste much naughtier.

One little tip if using a machine, do NOT use frylight on the plates, dab a little oil on a piece of tissue and rub it over the plates before preheating, this keeps the plates clean and prevents them from being ruined by the frylight and makes it easier to clean.
