Third Place Recipe of Quarantine: Teigan’s Parmesan Waffles

It’s Sunday morning, and if you aren’t immediately heading to your kitchen to whip of the third place recipe of quarantine, are you even living?

Holy hell, these are incredible and not all that carb heavy. The parmesan brings a umami quality that I cannot even explain. Your kitchen smells incredible and after you eat a waffle, you can’t wait until the you get to eat a second one.

So far, I’ve only made this recipe once and cut it in half and got three waffles, but easily could have gotten four. I’ve eaten these as a base for a runny egg, quarter as a sidecar to a salad, and two quarters to make a grilled cheese. You know, science.

This week, I am going to make them again to use up my buttermilk and will freeze them in quarters. Will update with the results of that experiment.
