Ideas for frozen waffles

I have an entire box of frozen waffles and I like waffles straight-up but I was wondering if anyone had original ways of eating waffles...i.e. waffle sandwiches and the like. Help me, please!

  1. Yes! Waffle ice cream sandwiches are delish!!

    Also, there was a contest a couple years ago where the winner won a HUGE cash prize for using frozen buttermilk waffles in a recipe for chicken with stuffing (dressing). It looked good, if a little odd.

    Here's something really bad for you: I have been known to deep-fry my waffles when the electricity has been turned off, but the gas bill has been paid. Still yummy, but oh so naughty.

    If you're in the mood for a savory sandwich and you have a non-fruity waffle, you can fill your sandwich with herbed goat cheese, roasted red peppers, and artichoke hearts, then press it panini-style or pan-fry like a grilled cheese.

    Enjoy the experimenting!!

      I saw that waffle stuffing and tried my own version of it. All you have to do is make some variation of any stuffing/dressing that you like and use the waffles as all or part of the bread. It tasted quite good and added a little different texture. I'm not sure it was better than traditional, but it was good.

      I have replaced it as the bread in a grilled cheese a few times - that was quite good.

      Use it as the crust for pizza, kinda like french bread pizza - a little weird, but a nice change of pace.

    2. not really inventive but I always eat mine with peanut butter and jelly.

        Chicken and waffles ...leftover roasted chicken, gravy on top of toasted waffle. If I recall, this typical Pennsylvania dish even popped up on the school lunch menu ... but I don't believe there was stuffing on top of it. Gravy was always yellow -- go figure! And I do think the kids still love this dish.

          Oh my, i used to do the same thing. Nothing better than a couple of toasted blueberry waffles, creamy Jif, and strawberry smuckers!

        2. I've seen them turned into bread pudding, we make "French toast" with ours (we have wheat free waffles and often less hassle then making wheat-free bread). I have seen them turned into breadcrumbs and used as bread in a grilled sandwich as mentioned above.

          1. Use them for P.B. and J. sammys. Or, yes, stuff with ice cream, freeze then dip whole thing in chocolate and slivered almonds! yum!

            1. Well I only eat them for breakfast, but lately I've been putting ricotta cheese, Fage yogurt, etc, and a drizzle of honey and some nuts and berries instead of just plain maple syrup. Gives a lovely creaminess and (I tell myself) some dairy/protein/calcium.

                This morning I toasted them up then topped them with a sliced banana cooked in butter and a touch of maple syrup and then topped it with some greek yogurt. Really good. I have the buckwheat/health food kind and I think they'd be good with some peanut butter, as people have mentioned above.

                  Laurendlewis, we did the exact same thing for a number of years (it's the one breakfast routine that we were finally able to break): toasted waffles, berries, nuts, topped with yogurt and honey. It's so addictive.....
