  • 3/4 cup cornmeal
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp chipotle chile powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • Gravy
  • Olive oil
  • 1 lb lb ground turkey
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups milk

To make the waffles, in a bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, chile powder, baking soda, and salt.

In a small bowl, combine eggs, butter, and buttermilk. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir to combine.

To make the gravy, in a frying pan over medium-high heat, add 1 tablespoon oil. Add turkey, season with salt and pepper and cook until no longer pink, about 7 minutes. Add flour, stir until turkey is coated with flour, and cook, about 2 minutes. Add milk and green chiles, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened. Season with salt and pepper.

In another frying pan over medium heat, melt butter. Add eggs, season with salt and pepper and cook until whites are set, about 3 minutes. Turn over and cook on second sides until desired doneness.

To assemble, place 1 waffle on a plate, pour over with gravy and top with an egg and desired toppings.
