Cook Dishes Using a Waffle Iron

I love waffles and I was really happy with the waffle maker I got for Christmas. On the flip side there’s just so much waffles one can eat, so I thought of some other uses for the nifty appliance. Some of the ideas are so simple, and more importantly, delicious. 

1. Hash browns

Grate fresh potatoes over the waffle iron adding vegetables and cheese. You can also use frozen tater tots.

2. Reheat macaroni and cheese

A classic enjoyable meal easily reheated. Dip your refridgerated macaroni in flour and coat this with a beaten egg. Bread this with crumbs and place it on the waffle iron.

3. Quasedillas, with chicken and cheese

This delicious meal only requires 3 ingredients: tortillas, grilled chicken and mozzarella cheese. You can prepare the chicken in a crockpot. Use cooking spray so that the tortillas don’t stick. 

4. Cinnamon rolls

This one only takes 6 minutes. Place Refrigerated Cinnamon Rolls on your waffle iron. Use cooking spray for a non-stick result.  Drizzle with icing. Presto. 

5. Crisp panini

Add turkey, ham and cheese to a slice of bread and cover. If you use sourdough bread spread a thin layer of jam to the bread to offset the sourdough tang. 

6. Red velvet cookies

7. French toast, waffle-style

10. Tacos, with meat and egg

12. Croque madame

Use croissant dough in the waffle iron. You can then add ham and cheese. Once this is ready, you can cook an egg on the iron, but without closing the lid. 

13. Chocolate cake

For a further shortcut to delicious baked goods, used a box cake mix and press in the waffle iron for delicious waffle cake.
