Description of Fody's Savory Cheddar Low FODMAP Waffles with Poached Egg

Waffles don’t always have to be sweet, as these cheddar low FODMAP waffles showcase so well! Chives add “onion” flavor along with the Fody's Low FODMAP Shallot-Infused Olive Oil. A poached or fried egg on top, and you have a main course meal for a low FODMAP breakfast, brunch or even dinner!

The number of waffles that you get out of the batter will be dependent on your waffle maker. Pay attention to the serving sizes, regardless of the number of your waffles.

And PS: did you know that Monash University recently stated that fresh squeezed orange juice contains no FODMAPs! So, have a glass!!!

Directions for Fody's Savory Cheddar Low FODMAP Waffles with Poached Egg

Whisk together the milk and lemon juice in a medium sized mixing bowl and allow to thicken for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda and ½ teaspoon Fody Taco Seasoning to aerate and combine.

Whisk the eggs, melted butter and oil into the soured milk until combined. Pour this wet mixture over the dry and begin to fold together until a few floury streaks remain. Add cheese and chives and continue folding until batter is mixed.
