BFF/Bill ~ Waffle Experiments

Good 39ยบ drizzling morning. According to the 'weather people' it wasn't supposed to rain until late tonight. Fine. Then we are in for a BIG storm, with lots of wind and rain. Who knows.

Yesterday I met up with Bill and Jeannie for a drink to celebrate their anniversary at Blondie's Bistro.
                           (just playin' with Photoshop!)

We had a nice chat and then went to the Elk's lodge for a glass of wine, where Willie, the bartender, treated them to their drink. Came home and had a bowl of Progresso Minestrone (really good soup!).

See, you can cook anything just about in a waffle iron .... cookie dough, cornbread.... spray or grease the waffle iron liberally, put a tortilla on there and cook until golden and make quesadillas .... or butter a piece of bread both sides and waffle it.... shred potatoes and waffle them and top with an egg...
Chocolate chip cookie dough waffles.... (or oatmeal!)

Chocolate donut waffle..... or plain....

paninni sandwich... fill with meat and cheese...or just cheese

slice pre-made polenta and waffle... serve with black beans

top a waffled tortilla with salsa...

waffle a double layer of pizza dough... top with feta cheese and micro greens... set in microwave for a few seconds to melt cheese...
 top with mozzarella and baked or seared tomatoes, heat in oven, under broiler, or in microwave to melt cheese.

or....... with a 12" piece of dough, lay half in the iron, and cook til golden, pile on some leftover mac and cheese, top with other half and waffle for a few minutes, and before serving cut away excess dough..

Let me hear from you re your waffle experiments!!!
