I have to ask, "Will it Belgium Waffle?" That's the sort of waffle iron I have. I think its much deeper pockets might cause issues with some of these waffleized items.

I thought this was going to be some geezer going on and on in a vague fashion. But it wasn't, thankfully. Unfortunately I only have a jaffle iron. I suppose I could try a few of the recipes in it. But they might not be as successful and I hate being disappointed. Especially when it comes to food. It's not that I'm picky or anything, it's just that I hate eating when I'm feeling disappointed. Anyway, thanks for the post. I hope it all goes well.

It's not easy to remove the waffled bread pudding from the waffle iron intact.

But it's worth trying.


No, it's not.

I couldn't find how to input "Kevin Rudd" - lucky I already know the answer to that one.

"Will it waffle?"

Eh, it might, it might not.

I saw a recipe for super-quick waffle-cooked cookies the other day. That seems like a much more natural recipe than bread pudding.

Waffle Cheeseburger?

Holy god, I want one

The waffled hash browns look awesome and easy. 15 minute hash browns in convenient waffle shape? Yes please. Saves you some stove space for the rest of brunch, too.

I use a lyophilizer at work to freeze dry protein samples. One of my coworkers misheard the word lyophilizer. We now refer to it as the waffleizer. I'd like to propose this as an additional form of waffling.

American version: I thought it was a biography of John Kerry, but it turned out to be a COOKBOOK!!!!!

Not for the first time in my life, I am immensely disappointed that I do not own a waffle iron.

If this were a theme restaurant, I'd go.

Why? How often do you deal with wrinkled waffles?

I actually have a Black and Decker waffle iron with plates that flip over. One side is waffle, one side is a griddle/press. 90% of this stuff would come out better with the flat side.

It's a great iron. Gets good and hot, and makes crisp, moist waffles. Sourdough waffles are to die for.

Just the other day, in a diner, I suggested to the waitress that the restaurant should combine their waffles and their falafel into the FalafelWaffle™! Who wouldn't want to stuff their face with crispy, spicy balls of falafel, wrapped up in a golden-brown waffle and smothered in tomatoes, onions, tzatziki, and maple syrup?

Here's the beloved waffle iron/flat press I just mentioned.

I tend to forget to take them out of the dryer when they're done.

FalafelWaffle

Oh man, I came up with that a couple months ago in the midst of a conversation about rhyming foods. I feel much less original now (although I was thinking of it the other way around, as WaffleFalafel). Your recipe is more thought out than mine, though.

It seems much more palatable than my other idea, which was OffalWaffle.

crap. now i'm going to end up buying a waffle iron.

I put cornbread batter in the waffle iron and they were yummy. Black eyed peas over the top as a kind of syrup was awesome too.

That's the most disgusting and/or delicious thing I've ever heard of!

It's got a very Cockeyed.com feel to it, that project.

I would not do any of those things except the aloo parantha in a waffle iron. Not even the one with the changeable plates. You don't ever want to risk making the "non-stick" coating even a tiny bit damaged.

However, I will note that french toast does wonderfully well in an American waffle iron. Which leads to the observation: it's the WORLD WIDE web. The article is written as though waffle irons were all the same. I have 3 irons, and one of those has 4 different plates. Only one of them matches more-or-less with any of the others (both are Brussels waffle forms). One of the irons is an American "Belgian" waffle iron, I use for waffles-for-one-in-a-hurry. The other two are Belgian models, one being exclusively for Brussels waffles, the other doing Brussels and Leige waffles, as well as icecream cones, and a fine grid for some cookie-type waffles (what they use for Stroop waffles, in the Netherlands), and that one also doubles as a grill.

If you want to do something different, just try adding hulled sunflower seeds to your waffle batter. It's good! (for American-style waffles, that is. I don't think it'd be good in Brussels waffles. Might be interesting in a Leige waffle)

This is my blog and it's hugely flattering and exciting to see it on MetaFilter, even with snarky comments—hell, especially with snarky comments!

I wish I could be more jaded about it, but I just can't. It's really cool.

There's a lot of great stuff lined up for the blog. If you like it so far, I hope you'll stick around.

Mrs. usonian just gave me one of these for Christmas - I've definitely been using the flat griddle side more than the waffle side - makes amazing grilled cheese, and last night my suspicions were confirmed: makes excellent sliders too!

Mmmmm, smorffles....

FalafelWaffle sounds awful.

Not really, I just wanted to say it. I could probably eat at least a jawful.

Plenty of waffle irons are bare metal. Steel is a great non-porous conductor that almost nothing sticks to, and you definitely can't ruin it. I've had the same waffle maker for almost 20 years now. Generally, I recommend avoiding "non-stick" at all costs.
