Waffles should be delicious, but uncomplicated and that’s exactly what these buttermilk waffles are. They are perfect for weekday mornings but so good they are also brunch-worthy.
I know chicken and waffles are all the rave, and with good reason, but I actually like mine with smoked brisket as well. Buttermilk waffles make for a great carrier for leftover smoked brisket.
These waffles are light, fluffy and with a little crunchiness. They aren’t too sugary, but have more than enough sweetness to balance against the buttermilk.
Waffles and me are a love story. Brisket takes the love to a St' Elmo's Fire level. These are divine.
Ingredients for Brisket and Waffles
- All-purpose Flour
- Baking Soda
- Baking Powder
- Leftover Smoked Brisket
How To Make Buttermilk Waffles
Mix the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Be careful not to overtax.
Mix the wet ingredients (buttermilk, melted butter, and egg) in a separate mixing bowl.
Create a well in the dry mixture then slowly pour wet ingredients in the dry mixture while simultaneously whisking everything together.
Pre-heat waffle maker and once hot cooking according to maker instructions.
While waffles cook mix together maple syrup and your favorite hot sauce. Serve buttermilk waffles topped with leftover smoked brisket and spicy syrup.
Cooking Considerations and Tips
For lighter waffles mix half cake flour + half all-purpose flour.
These are semi-sweet pancakes, if you prefer sweeter then increase the sugar amount to your tastes.
Melt the butter slowly and allow to cool before mixing with the eggs and buttermilk, otherwise the wet ingredients will curdle.
Add cinnamon for additional flavor.
Serve the waffles immediately, with maple syrup/hot sauce mixture.
If you’re not serving them right away, let the waffles cool and then toast them briefly (30 seconds or so) to re-crisp them.
Make more batter than you need and keep leftover waffles in the fridge in a sealed container for weekday breakfasts.
Don't make brisket just for this recipe, just make waffles next time you have brisket on hand. Feel free to buy smoked brisket from your favorite bbq spot.
If you prefer your waffles with a different protein try traditional with fried lobster tails, fried chicken, fried fish, or chicken wings.
