Waffle Maker Magic

As a result of my recently upgraded kitchen, I have the counter space and storage space that I have only dreamt about for the past 6 years. Not only has this renewed my interest in cooking, but it has allowed me to acquire some new kitchen “appliances” for which I previously didn’t have room.

Enter the waffle maker.

Thanks to a birthday gift from my parents, I am now the proud owner of a waffle maker–this waffle maker to be exact.

While I do like a good waffle, there is so much more that you can make with a waffle maker and that may have been why I really wanted the waffle maker. What else can you make, you ask…well there’s cookies, cakes, cinnamon rolls, hotdogs in a bun, hash browns, baked apples, donuts, pretzels, bacon, quesadillas, s’mores, and even pizza!

I had some Kodiak cake pancake mix in my pantry so my first use of the waffle maker was to make actual waffles. They were very yummy! After the maiden voyage, the real fun began.

First there were sweet potato tater tot waffles…

…then there were the French toast waffles…

…and the final waffle maker meal so far has been a half a grilled cheese sandwich and a fried egg.
