Simply mix all dry coating ingredients together in a bowl and set aside. For the wet batter, whisk water, salt and aquafaba together until combined, then slowly add flour while stirring with your whisk to help cut down on any lumps.

Pour your grapeseed oil into your skillet and turn your burner to medium-high. When your oil is shimmering, test it by dropping a small amount of wet batter in it. If it immediately starts bubbling, you’re ready to fry! Then just take pieces of jerky and dip them in the wet batter, and then coat with the dry. Fry in the oil until golden brown, turning when needed.

To get your gravy ready, you’ll want to use a high-speed blender or food processor. Place all ingredients except for pepper in your blender and blend or process until smooth and creamy. Once this is done, place a pot or skillet on your stove and place temperature at medium-high and pour your gravy in. You’ll want to bring the gravy to a low simmer, being careful to stir often so that it will not burn. Once the gravy is thick enough to your liking, turn your burner off.

Build your waffles any way you want ‘em! Enjoy, y’all!
