Southwest Dinner Waffle

I love breakfast and Southwest dishes. Every now and then you have to make up excuses to have breakfast for dinner. Recently, my wife bought me a waffle maker to add a little creativity to the kitchen. I love the idea of waffles because you can make so many dishes and did I mention the toppings? Fresh berries, syrup, whipped cream, butter and the list goes on. I didn’t want the traditional sweet dish for dinner, however. I wanted a healthier, savory waffle for this meal. I quickly realized I could add protein to the waffle without using tofu. Enjoy this tasty dish that is packed with protein and vegetables.

Dinner Waffle



  • In a mixing bowl, make the batter by mixing the wheat flour, salt, baking power, milk, brown sugar, Greek yogurt, egg, and olive oil. This is similar to my Power Pancake recipe.
  • Fold in the black beans.
  • Cook the waffles until golden brown on a traditional or Belgian waffle maker – yields 3.
  • For sides, dice potatoes, zucchini, and bell pepper. Chop onions. Use my baked home fries recipe to prepare these. Cook the zucchini, onion and bell peppers along with the potatoes.
  • Serve with the baked veggie mix on top of the waffle. Garnish with shredded cheese, guacamole, Greek yogurt or sour cream, and Cholula Sauce.
