Happy Waffle Iron Day! You ARE celebrating, right? If you're old-school like me, you've probably only ever made waffles in your waffle iron, but oh, OH there is so much more you can waffle!
Have you hopped on this trend yet? There are even whole cookbooks and websites devoted to answering the question of the day: Will It Waffle? Cooking say, brownies or grilled cheese in your waffle iron is a good idea for a number of reasons. First, it takes something familiar, maybe something you even make all the time, and gives it a new spin. Second, figuring out what "waffles" (yes, it's a verb) can be a fun summer activity to get the kids involved with. Give them a box mix of brownies and let them develop their skills of measuring and mixing and of course, seeing if it will waffle! Here are 5 recipes to get you started.
First time moving beyond waffles in your waffle iron? Start off with these easy transitions.
Cinnamon Roll Waffles - this one takes no more effort than buying one of those tubes of ready-to-bake cinnamon rolls an plopping a few of them onto a heated waffle iron. Don't forget the icing! Cinnamon-y, gooey deliciousness!
