- cups shredded pepper jack cheese
- 1 cup shredded pork or chopped brisket
- ½ cup Meyer’s BBQ Sauce

Place shredded pork or chopped brisket on top in an even layer and then sprinkle remainder of shredded cheese.
- Bake for 8 minutes or until the cheese melts.

Cornbread Waffles with Chopped Brisket
A fun BBQ twist on fried chicken and waffles.
- 1 ¾ cup low-fat buttermilk
- 2 large eggs, separated
- 5 tbsp canola oil
- 1 cup yellow cornmeal
- 3 tbsp honey
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 cup corn kernels
- 8 cups chopped brisket
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 3 sliced green onions for garnish
- Preheat waffle iron.
- In a bowl combine buttermilk, egg yolks, corn oil, and honey. Set aside.
- In another large bowl combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Pour the buttermilk mixture into your flour mixture and stir. Let combined mixtures sit for 10 minutes so the cornmeal has a chance to soften.
- In a medium-sized bowl, whip the egg whites to form stiff peaks. Fold the egg whites into the cornmeal batter you let sit. Gently fold in the corn kernels.
- Spray waffle iron with cooking spray and put 1/3 cup of batter for each waffle and cook. You can make the waffles as soft or crisp as you like.
- Heat up the chopped brisket to top on the cornbread waffles.
- Take one waffle and top with 1 cup of the chopped brisket. Sprinkle cheese and top with green onions for garnish.
