  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1.5 Tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp dry Ranch seasoning mix
  • 1 and 1/2 cup + 4 Tablespoons whole milk or half and half I used half and half
  • 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar white vinegar also works
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 Tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 cup sweet whole kernel corn (fresh frozen or from a can)
  • 8 slices of bacon cooked to crispy, chopped
  • 1 cup freshly grated cheddar cheese I used mild
  • 4 green onions chopped


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, cornmeal, salt, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, paprika, Ranch seasoning and pepper. Set aside.

  2. In a small bowl or a measuring cup, combine half and half and vinegar. Stir few times and let it sit for 2 to 3 minutes. In the meantime, in a mixing bowl, whisk together eggs and melted butter. Add half and half and vinegar mixture and stir together.
  3. Add wet ingredients, corn, chopped bacon, cheese and green onions to the dry ingredients and stir with a spatula. Do not overmix! The batter should be slightly lumpy.
  4. Preheat waffle iron. I used a Belgian waffle maker and used 3 scoops of batter with a regular size ice cream scoop per waffle. If you are using a regular waffle maker, start with 2 scoops of batter.
  5. Cook waffles. Remove onto a plate and serve immediately or place on baking sheet and keep warm in a warm oven, until serving.
  6. Serve drizzled with garlic Parmesan butter, if desired. Simply mix 4 Tablespoons melted salted butter, 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder and 1 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese.
