Creative Dishes You Can Make With Your Waring Waffle Maker
A lot of people are thrilled with the idea of a waffle maker in their kitchen. The inexpensive ones you can buy off the shelf in any department store always fall short, though, burning food, taking too long to heat and cook, and breaking way too easily. A professional grade waffle iron like the Waring WW180 Belgian Waffle Maker can easily solve these problems.
A high-quality waffle maker has several advantages over the cheap plastic ones at the store down the street. They cook evenly and on a consistent basis, making it a lot easier to time and cook meals without having to worry about under or over-cooking. These units are also more durable and come with a better warranty than the rest. Their non-stick coating isn’t going to wash and scrape away after the first few uses and is going help make clean up a breeze.
Investing in a commercial grade waffle maker might seem like a big step. And, if all you could do with it was make waffles, it might even seem frivolous. If all you are doing is making waffles with your waffle maker, you’re doing it wrong.
Sweet or savory, breakfast or dinner—it’s time to get your waffle iron working for you.
Breakfast? No problem. Of course, there are waffles. It would be ridiculous to have a waffle maker that couldn’t make waffles, wouldn’t it? But, there are so many different ways to make waffles. No one is saying there is anything wrong with traditional buttermilk or Belgian waffles with some butter and maple syrup on them. Those are great. However, if those are the only waffles you know, it’s time to expand your horizons a bit. Here are a few quick ideas: banana and chocolate chip, fruit stuffed, sausage waffles (note, there is no “and” in that statement), butterscotch waffles, cinnamon French toast waffles, and those are just a few to get you started.
Of course, as mentioned earlier, breakfast with a waffle iron does not have to be all about waffles. You can use them to make a variety of egg and omelet dishes, hash browns, biscuits and gravy, and more. Really, if you can come up with it and cook it on a griddle or frying pan, there’s a good chance you can make it in your waffle maker as well.
Waffle irons are for much more than just breakfast, though. Consider some of these ideas for snacks, lunch, and dinner.
