You know how much I love savory waffles so naturally, I made corn and tomato stuffed waffles with Wonderffle, a cordless, cast aluminum/iron stuffed waffle maker. Stuffed waffles are one of the easiest and versatile meal ideas ever because you can use your favorite waffle recipe and jazz it up with sweet, savory, or both. It’s also kinda perfect for brunch, lunch, or dinner and everyone loves them.

As we are heading towards the Summer season, I picked corn and tomatoes as my base filling and sauteed them with garlic, jalapenos, and cumin powder. It is a pretty classic combination and honestly, I love the sauteed corn and tomatoes just as a side dish, mixed into eggs for frittata/quiche or as a filling for tacos.

If you love the idea of a meal in a waffle, you should definitely look more into Wonderffle. Some of my favorite features include the detachable parts so the cleaning is easy and you can use it to cook on electric or gas cook tops, outdoor grills, or any open flame.

Currently, it is available in two models, cast iron or aluminum. You can read more about Wonderffle here and when you preorder Wonderffle, use the code FOODPLEASUREHEALTH to receive 10% discount.

Corn and Tomato Stuffed Waffles can be enjoyed with a side salad, pickled veggies chutney, or micro greens for some freshness. The recipe I am sharing below makes 2-5 inch round stuffed waffles but you can easily scale up or down the recipe as needed. Both the batter and filling can be made ahead of time and cooked right before serving.

If you are into sweet waffles, you can use the same waffle batter recipe (skip the black pepper) and try with sweet fillings such as peanut butter and banana, chocolate chips, nutella, apples, guava and cream cheese to name a few.

Corn and Tomato Stuffed Waffles

Makes 2 – 5-inch round stuffed waffles

For the corn and tomato filling

  • 1 teaspoon neutral oil

  • ¼ cup corn (frozen, fresh or canned)

  • ¾ cup chopped cherry tomatoes

  • 2 teaspoon finely chopped jalapeno, optional

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin

  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the waffle batter

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup milk

  • 1/4 cup neutral oil

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper each

Additional ingredients to cook and serve with

  • Oil or pam spray to grease the Wonderffle

  • Serve with vibrant cilantro/mint chutney and a refreshing salad


  • Heat oil in a small pan and sautee corn and tomatoes until tomatoes softens a little bit.

  • Add chopped jalapeno if using and season with cumin, salt and pepper.

  • Cook until both corn and tomatoes are fully cooked. Remove from the heat and set aside.

  • In a medium bowl, whisk egg until fluffy. Beat in flour, milk, vegetable oil, baking powder, salt until smooth. Do not over beat the batter.

  • Preheat the Wonderffle on a low-medium heat for about 5 minutes per side. It is ready when water flicked on the waffle grids quickly sizzles and evaporates.

  • Remove from heat and grease the bottom pan with oil or cooking spray.

  • Pour enough batter into the bottom pan to completely cover the waffle grids, about 1⁄2 cup. Add the corn and tomatoes filling onto the batter.

  • Cover with additional batter to fill up to the top rim of the center pan. Grease the top pan and then close the unit.

  • Flip the unit to the opposite side. This allows for the batter to be distributed evenly inside.

  • Cook on low-medium heat for 5-6 minutes per side. Cooking times and temperatures may vary depending on cooking surface.

  • Remove the cooked stuffed waffle by placing your thumb into one center pan finger loop and your index and middle fingers into the other center pan finger loop and lifting it from the bottom pan. Release the stuffed waffle from the center pan by separating your thumb and fingers in a similar motion as opening a pair of scissors.
