Operation “waffle all the things” is off to a delicious start

Fresh out of the waffle iron box!

Knowing that waffles are my favorite thing, my boyfriend Mike got me this waffle iron (surprisingly, not this waffle iron) as a present for our six month anniversary. We have since made waffles, and they were good.

Then we wondered, what other things can we make on a waffle iron?

In our quest to become the world’s foremost waffle iron chefs (okay, I might be overstating things a bit) we have started scheming up waffle iron recipe plans. And this morning we executed our first masterpiece…

The Waffled Egg Melt (aka. the “diet waffled egg melt”) (warning: this is not diet in any way)…

waffled scrambled egg melt

It’s basically soft scrambled eggs and cheese, sandwiched and waffled between two pieces of thin-sliced sourdough bread. Here’s the step-by-step recipe on Offbeat Home. It was delicious.

Next, I’m trying to scheme up the “wafflecado toast” recipe (can you believe that’s not a thing YET) — I’ll take any suggestions you may have for that. I’m thinking I need a savory waffle recipe for that.

Anyway, wish us luck on our waffling endeavors. I see good things coming from this. Good, waffled, things.

    I’ve seen this before! Basically it was “use a waffle iron instead of a panini maker” and the person was making sandwiches and sticking them in the waffle iron.

    My suggestion : fresh mozzarella ( bufalo if you can get it ), fresh basil, tomatoes between bread. Or pesto instead of basil.

      OMG! Stuffing waffles!?? Genius. We were gonna try to do a pumpkin spice cucpake waffle or something for Thanksgiving dessert.

      Yup, this was the very first thing I thought of when I saw this post. The folks at serious eats will make sure you can survive on nothing but waffled food :)
