- Make grilled cheese sandwiches. Okay, so the sandwiches might be shaped like a waffle, but it is simple, just put together your cheese and bread and put into the waffle maker. It heats it up to gooey perfection very quickly!
- Hashbrowns. Grated Yukon gold potatoes into a double-thickness paper towel and squeeze out the extra moisture. I use a spray olive oil or Pam on the waffle iron and cook your hash-browns up. It might take some experimenting with you particular model of waffle maker to determine which heat setting will work best to cook your hashbrowns through.
- Cook bacon. There's even a video on serious eats to show you how: http://www.seriouseats.com/2009/11/video-alton-browns-perfect-breakfast-tips-makes-bacon-in-a-waffle-iron.html
- Make 90 second cookies. We've seen recipes using oatmeal cookies, but would love to hear if there are people using other types of cookie dough!
- Create waffle Cupcakes. The Waffleizer has a blog post about their cupcake waffle experiment.
