Savory Sourdough Potato Waffles with Cheese

These savory sourdough waffles are a super tasty lunch on busy days or a hearty addition to your weekend brunch. You can prepare the dough the day before and leave it to rest overnight in the fridge. The next day, all you have to do is bake and serve the waffles. They are deliciously crispy and the potatoes and cheese in the batter give the waffles their hearty taste. This recipe is a great way to use up leftover potatoes and sourdough from the fridge. It also does not contain yeast or baking powder. If you prefer your waffles sweet, then take a look at this recipe.

What you need for hearty waffles with sourdough

  • Sourdough starter or discard: The sourdough does not have to be freshly fed. You can also use your sourdough discard for this recipe. I feed my sourdough with equal parts water and flour. For the flour, I use a mixture of wheat flour and wholegrain rye flour. If you feed your sourdough with a different water-to-flour ratio, you will need to adjust the amount of liquid in the recipe accordingly.
  • Buttermilk: If you don’t have buttermilk on hand, you can mix milk or a plant-based alternative with a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar.
  • Wheat flour (bread flour or type 1050)
  • Potatoes: These savory waffles are great for using up leftover potatoes from the previous day.
  • Egg or a vegan egg substitute
  • Butter or a vegan alternative.
  • Salt for the flavor
  • Cheese e.g. Gouda or cheddar.
  • Spring onions and yogurt or sour cream to serve.

In three steps: How to make waffles with sourdough

  1. Mix the pre-dough and place in the fridge overnight.
  2. Add the egg, butter, salt, cheese and spring onions and preheat the waffle iron*.
  3. Bake the waffles until crispy and serve with sour cream or yogurt.
