S’mores Waffle Sticks
Most kids love most waffles, but this one will “stick” in their minds as a popular favorite. With gooey chocolate and roasted marshmallows made in a fun-to-eat kind of way…what’s not to love? Even grown-up kids will take time for a waffle to go and will likely want s'more!
Cider Pumpkin Waffles with Salted Maple Butter
Fall will be here before we can say “pumpkin spice”, which is a popular ingredient in just about everything autumn related. That being the case, let’s go a bit further and add another seasonal favorite or two to this waffle-y mix. Besides the pumpkin, nothing fits the months ahead any better than maple and cider. Honor the day now along with the upcoming season spiced with this warm and delightful waffle recipe!
Cheesy Cornbread Waffles
Waffles aren’t always sweet which brings them onboard as a perfect side for cozy meals like soup, chili, and stews. Making them cornbread style is easy to create and to handle. This one features cheese but you can also add green onions, bacon bits, and other savory options. Cornbread waffles are also awesome topped with chile, more cheese, and sour cream to become a meal in itself!
Loaded Egg, Bacon, and Cheese Waffles
We all love bacon, egg, and cheese biscuits! Now you can skip the hassle of making and baking biscuits and load up your waffle with the same luxurious ingredients. You can start with a mix or make your own homemade batter, then simply stir in the goodies and you’ll have a toasty EBC waffle in minutes! Sometimes being different is better and this is one of those times!
One of life’s simple pleasures is a Krispy Kreme donut. The ultimate is when the “Hot Now” sign is on. That glow, resulting in melt-in-your-mouth goodness, is like the cloud dreams are made of. If there are leftovers in a day or so, the magic isn’t what it once was. That’s where the surprise comes in as you make them the lone wacky ingredient. Pop that donut in your waffle iron and, well, make waffles!
Pulled Pork Waffle Tacos with Pineapple Slaw
Last but definitely not least in the weird and wacky waffle celebration is this grand finale for your mouth! It looks like a waffle, is shaped like a taco, inspired by Disney, and is loaded with pulled pork covered in pineapple coleslaw. How could it get any better?
