Homemade waffle taco

It seems there’s artisan everything these days. So, here is a recipe for an artisan waffle taco. It’s the same premise as Taco Bell’s monstrosity, but with, you know, things like whole wheat flour, lean meat, and fresh cilantro.

Makes 3 waffle tacos:

Waffle batter for 3 waffles (I used Alton Brown’s recipe, halved)
2 tsp red onion, diced
1/2 TBS cornmeal
1/2 pound lean ground turkey
TBS chili powder
1/2 tsp oregano
Garlic clove, minced
Dash of cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper to taste
2 eggs
1.5 TBS crumbled goat cheese
1.5 TBS chopped cilantro
2 ounces maple syrup
1.5 tsp lime juice
Cooking spray

Mix the waffle batter, onions and cornmeal. Set in fridge.

Chop cilantro and mix lime juice with syrup. Set cilantro and syrup aside.

In medium-sized bowl, combine turkey, chili powder, oregano, garlic, cayenne, salt and pepper. Form into three oval-shaped patties.

artisan waffle taco foldedSpray large skillet and cook sausage patties over medium-high heat, about 6 minutes per side, uncovered for the first sides and covered for the second sides.

While sausage patties cook, pre-heat waffle iron, beat two eggs and spray a small skillet or pot.

When the second sides of the sausage patties are halfway through cooking, spray waffle iron and put skillet over medium-high heat. Pour waffle batter onto iron and eggs into skillet .

Cook waffles and eggs for 3 minutes, folding egg in half when it solidifies, like an omelette.

For each taco, stack 1 sausage and 1/3 of egg diagonally across half of a waffle, drizzle with syrup, sprinkle with cheese and cilantro, fold and eat.
