Gluten-free Adjustments

This recipe can easily be adjusted to be gluten-free. Simply replace the all-purpose flour in the cheddar-egg waffle recipe with a gluten-free 1-to-1 flour blend. Additionally, make sure to use a gluten- free marinade for the chicken and a gluten-free beer for pairing.

Vegan Adjustments

This recipe can also be made vegan. For the chicken, substitute the bacon topping with a vegan bacon alternative and use a vegan marinade. For the waffle, replace the eggs with a flax egg (1 tablespoon of flax meal combined with 2.5 tablespoons of water, allowed to sit for 5 minutes until thickened) and use a vegan cheese alternative. Make sure to also pair the sandwich with a vegan beer.
