Waffle irons used to be used only to make waffles for breakfast or brunch, but not anymore. I bought a book called, Will It Waffle? and it has recipes for all kinds of dishes you can make in your waffle iron. After thumbing through the book, I think you can “waffle” just about any kind of food. Some of the recipes are waffled mac and cheese, spaghetti and waffled meatballs and waffled crispy kale! I decided to search the internet to see what other recipes I could find to make in my waffle iron.
