This recipe for gluten-free waffles would make a great base for any number of menu items, but Chef Jenny Dorsey tops them with creamy scrambled eggs, sauteed peppers and onions, jalapenos and arugula for a hearty open-face sandwich. Drizzles of garlic-infused honey complete the savory-sweet-hot flavor profile.
