10 Incredible Waffle Maker Recipes (That Aren't Waffles)

  • Kirbie Cravings

    Omelette Waffle

    Rather than a carb-fest at breakfast, use your waffle iron to omeletize (we can make that a verb, right?) some eggs. Perfect for all the leftover veggies and meat chilling in your fridge.

    One-Minute Waffle Iron Baked Apples

    Just like apple pie without the crust, this simple fruit recipe takes just 60 seconds to cook. Eat them solo, pop a few in the middle of a grilled cheese sandwich, or use a couple as the "bread" for a mini ice cream sandwich.
