Method

  1. Heat the waffle maker according to manufacturer's instructions. Whisk the egg whites to stiff peaks. In a separate large bowl, mix together the flour, bicarbonate, paprika, mustard powder, chives and season with salt and black pepper. Stir in the grated cheese then make a well in the centre and add the egg yolks and melted butter. Start mixing with a balloon whisk; keep whisking as you slowly add the milk until you get a smooth, thick batter. Carefully fold in the egg whites with a metal spoon.

  2. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Use a ladle to pour the batter into your waffle maker and cook for 5 mins or according to the manufacturer's instructions. Repeat until all the batter has been used up, placing your finished waffles onto a baking tray as you go.

  3. Once all the waffles are made, transfer to the oven for 5 mins to warm through and crisp. Delicious served with wilted spinach and a fried egg.

These were easy to make and delicious! They do need good seasoning to bring out the flavours. They made a very tasty brunch! Be careful when they're in the oven as they can stick to the tray from the cheese!

I am a big fan of waffles, herbs and cheese in their individual states, unmerged so to speak. I am really, really excited about this recipe but have to say I have never been more nervous in my life.
