Waffle Sandwich

I’ve noticed sandwiches on waffles popping up here and there. Are you seeing these too? Move over bacon… I’m predicting the waffle might just be the next big thing. There’s even a blog called “Waffleizer” dedicated creative waffle-ing. Waffle falafel anyone?

So when we had half a carton of buttermilk leftover from another recipe, Luca and I made a giant stack of waffles from our favorite recipe (“Buttermilk Waffles”, from “The Gourmet Cookbook“) . We enjoyed some for breakfast, stashed some in the freezer* for quick toaster breakfasts down the road. We also jumped on the waffle sandwich bandwagon with this simple cheese, turkey and spinach version. Verdict? Two thumbs up for being both yummy and fun.

This is not the first time waffles and sandwiches have crossed paths at Casa Stacie. Before getting a panini press a few years ago for Christmas, we often toasted sandwiches in the waffle maker. It’s good way to get that toasty, compressed panini-style sandwich — and you don’t need the oil or butter you would normally use when making a grilled sandwich in a pan on the stove top.

* Freezing waffles: slightly undercook, let cool completely on a baking rack in a single layer.  Place sheets of parchment or waxed paper in between the waffles before packing in a freezer safe zipper bag. Pop them directly into your toaster from the freezer.

  1. there’s this restaurant in LA called Bru’s Wiffle where they put everything on waffles. Completely weird combos. Sandwiches make complete sense though–chicken & waffles is an amazing combo. And thanks for the freezing tip–they always dry out when we cook them fully and freeze them, but this sounds better.

  2. Great idea! We often have leftover frozen waffles on hand — my hub makes them during the weekends. Since he sometimes throws in chocolate chips, these would make great peanut butter and raspberry preserve waffle sandwiches!

  3. Oh, I couldn’t believe it when I saw this post! When I was little, and my mom ran out of bread mid week, she would pack me waffle sandwiches for my school lunch! I loved them but always felt a little odd in the lunchroom. Hee hee, little did I realize my mom was just ahead of the times 🙂

  4. Scott R. and myself invented the Original Waffle Sandwich in 1962. Two waffles, two fried eggs, ham and maple syrup. Make by taking a waffle, top with ham slice first, then the two eggs, another waffle, top entire thing with lots of butter and maple syrup. Great after a long night drinking.

    • Nice! Mmmm lsweet and savory… I love that. Alas, I don’t do too much drinking anymore, but this might be good after one of those nights when the bambino keeps us awake all night. Thanks for checking out our blog!
