12 Dishes You Can Make With A Waffle Iron!

Posted on Updated on

What can you make in a waffle iron?How many of you have a waffle maker?  I do.  And I love homemade waffles.  Especially the sourdough waffles I make.  And my Buttermilk cinnamon are out of this world! 
The problem is that I only do this occasionally for Sunday breakfast.  The rest of the time, the waffle maker is stuck in the cabinet gathering dust.  And I hate that.  That is why when I saw this article on dishes you can make with a waffle maker, my eyes perked up.  As I read on, I kept on saying ‘duh’, why didn’t I think of that?

Some of the ideas were waffled brownie sundae.  A waffled falafel.  How about waffled chorizo-cheese quesadilla, though in my case, it would be soyrizo!  Hash browns look easy and be great as a side dish.  Finally, my absolute favorite is the grilled cheese sandwiches.  I will add a little soy bacon to this one.  Here is the recipe!


Waffled Tomato-Grilled Cheese


Waffled grilled cheese sandwich

Makes 4 servings


4 plum tomatoes, halved lengthwise
Olive oil, for drizzling
Kosher salt
8 slices country white bread
Melted unsalted butter, for brushing
1/4 cup mayonnaise
12 slices cheese, such as Cheddar, Swiss, Muenster or a combination


Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Arrange the tomatoes on a baking sheet cut-side down. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Slow-roast until the tomatoes are soft and wrinkled, about 1 hour. Set aside to cool. (The tomatoes can be made and refrigerated up to 1 day ahead.)

Preheat a waffle iron to medium-high. Brush one side of each bread slice with melted butter. Lay the bread out on a clean work surface, dry-side up. Spread each slice of bread with some of the mayonnaise. Top 4 bread slices with 2 tomato halves, slightly smashing them into the bread. Top with 3 cheese slices each and the remaining bread slices.

Place two sandwiches at a time in the waffle iron and gently close the lid (don’t press down). Cook until the cheese is melted and the sandwiches are golden-brown, 6 to 10 minutes. Repeat with the remaining sandwiches. Cut in half and serve.
