Celebrate National Waffle Week in Style!

National Waffle Week is upon us and it’s time to get creative with our waffles! Whether you’re a fan of the classic Belgian waffle or something more exotic, now is the time to explore all of the great ways to enjoy this beloved breakfast staple. Let’s take a look at some of the delicious possibilities!

Savory Waffles

Savory waffles make for a unique twist on traditional breakfast fare. Start by replacing your classic sweet syrup with something a little more savory such as pesto, hummus, tahini, or salsa. Top with your favorite proteins such as cooked eggs, bacon, sausage, or smoked salmon and you have yourself the perfect savory brunch option. For those looking for an even heartier meal, try adding sautéed vegetables like mushrooms and spinach before topping with your favorite protein source.

Waffle Sandwiches

Forget about plain old toast – waffles are here to revolutionize sandwich-making! Start by spreading your favorite condiments such as mayonnaise or mustard on one side of your waffle before adding your chosen fillings like turkey slices or cheese. Pop another hot freshly made waffle on top and voila – you have yourself a tasty and unique sandwich that will be sure to delight family and friends alike. If you’re feeling extra adventurous why not try frying up some eggplant slices in olive oil and adding them to your waffle sandwich? Yum!

Sweet Waffles

The options for sweet waffles are endless – so get creative! Start out by making up a big batch of classic Belgian style batter before experimenting with different additions such as fresh fruit like blueberries or strawberries, chocolate chips, nuts, dried fruit – whatever takes your fancy really! Top it off with some maple syrup or honey for an added sweetness then sit back and indulge in your own delicious creation. If you’re feeling extra daring why not try making up some vegan friendly coconut cream pancakes? Simply combine coconut cream, almond flour, baking powder and coconut sugar into a pancake batter before cooking up in a hot waffle iron. Delicious!
National Waffle Week is all about getting creative in the kitchen so don’t be afraid to experiment with flavors and ingredients until you find something that works for you. Whether it’s savory, sweet or somewhere in between – there are plenty of delicious options when it comes to using a waffle iron. So grab yourself an egg timer (or better yet an actual egg) and get cooking this National Waffle Week! Happy eating everyone!
