Waffles aren’t just for breakfast anymore! I've actually been sending Kenya to school with waffles a lot lately. He loves when I cut them into bite-size squares and make mini waffle sandwiches. When I'm out of bread, but still want to make him a sammie, this is a great way to make breakfast leftovers stretch into lunch. I put anything from tuna salad to turkey to cream cheese inside.
I would imagine that everyone reading this has had sweet waffles before, but have you ever tried savory cheese waffles? They're a well-rounded breakfast, lunch or snack treat because they have protein from the cheese, egg and milk (great for vegetarians), and obviously, a carbohydrate. They're a great choice when you're on the go and need a complete energy boost. And, as you now know, they make great sandwich bread, too!
So, whether you eat these waffles on their own, as the bread for your sandwich or just alongside some eggs and bacon, they're a fun change of pace from the traditional waffle you’re used to seeing on your plate!
