There’s a reason it’s called a waffle iron, because it’s meant for waffles, right? Not so! Well, yes, but you know what I mean. If you’ve ever done any experimenting with your waffle maker, you know that it can produce some pretty good scrambled eggs, brownies, cinnamon rolls, and much more. Just make sure you have plenty of cooking spray as things tend to stick! I’ve compiled a list of 23 waffle iron recipes that are definitely worth a try.
1. Waffle Iron Bacon
Bacon cooked to a crisp in the waffle iron! It sounds like this might actually work (that bacon looks good!), but I’m a little concerned about how hard it would be to clean. Bacon grease in all of those little crannies could be a pain to get out.
2. Waffle Iron Scrambled Eggs
And, what better to go with bacon than scrambled eggs? I’ve done this many times and it works like a charm. However, I like to do it a little more omelette style by adding chopped peppers and ham. Bacon bits, onion, or any other breakfast goodies would be good, too.
3. Waffled Egg Sandwich
Even better, how about a waffled fried egg breakfast sandwich? Croissant dough can be used in the iron the same way you would cook a waffle, with the egg cooked afterwards without closing the lid to get it sunny side up style.
