Do you own a waffle iron? Yeah, me too… Until recently, I begrudgingly allowed the waffle iron a spot in my small appliance cupboard.
I say “begrudgingly” because I have a hard time wasting valuable cupboard room on an appliance that only has a single focus…
I say “until recently” because not too long ago I stumbled across some creative uses for my waffle iron! So I challenge you…
I love experimenting in the kitchen and trying new recipes, so I thought I would round-up some ideas for using a waffle iron to cook things other than waffles. I found recipes that are suitable for every meal of the day and even dessert.
While, for the most part, this post will be more of a ‘typical’ recipe round-up, you might want to take a little time to visit the Waffleizer site (which, I guess, will soon be a book). The two recipes picture above, Waffle Burgers and Waffle Iron S’Mores, can be found on this site. You can also find plenty of other ideas including, but not limited to, macaroni and cheese, soft pretzels, and donuts.
Go ahead, explore the recipes there… I will wait right here for you to come back…
Okay, now back to the other recipes that looked too good to ignore!
