For the waffles, cook the pasta in salted boiling water until al dente, 10-12 mins. Strain. Melt the butter in a pot over medium heat, whisk in the flour and cook, 1 min. Whisk in 250ml (1 cup) of the milk and cook, 3-5 mins until thick.

Whisk in 100g (½ cup) of the cheese, garlic and mustard. Stir in the bacon and pasta and season it to taste.

Allow the mixture to cool for 10 mins. Stir in the remaining milk and cheese. Add the eggs and flour and mix until combined. Heat a waffle iron until warm. Grease it with non-stick cooking spray.

Add a generous ladleful of the mac and cheese mixture and cook it in the waffle maker, 3-5 mins until golden and crisp.

For the salsa, stir all of the ingredients together and season it to taste.

For the coriander and chilli oil, combine all of the ingredients and using a hand blender, blend until smooth. Season it to taste.

To serve, add a dollop of sour cream to each waffle and top it off with some salsa and a drizzling of the coriander and chili oil.

TIP: The mixture can also be cooked in a jaffle maker or snakwich maker, if preferred.
