5 simply delicious treats to make with your waffle iron (that aren’t waffles)

Posted on October 20, 2017 |

Have you ever jumped up in the morning with a craving for something sweet and savory? A typical go-to treat on a Saturday morning for me is waffles with a side of crisp bacon. But after a frustrating, hectic search through the pantry last Saturday, I was quickly disappointed to learn I was all out of the waffle mix. I thought my weekend was headed for disaster. Or was it?

In this Friday’s Life Hack, I decided to pull out the old waffle iron for a spin. I scoured the interwebs for amazing and delicious ideas for my trusty old Waffle Maker, and you would be surprised what I found.

Here are 5 simply delicious recipes to make with your waffle iron that aren’t waffles.
