Now home cooks can enjoy scrumptious restaurant-quality sweet and savory waffles.
To say that that waffles are enjoying a moment is an understatement. The Waffle House sells 145 waffles per minute — 877 million waffles and counting since they opened — and almost 10% of North Americans eat waffles at least once a week. But the really hot trend in waffles is taking the experience beyond breakfast to create savory sandwich-style meals. If the lineups outside waffles-only restaurants are any indication, waffles are here to stay.
Bestselling authors Marilyn and Jennifer have created 150 delightfully delicious and inspired waffle recipes, from delectable breakfast and brunch options to snacks, burgers and sandwiches to tantalizing desserts and treats.
The beginning of this cookbook introduces you to the basics of using a waffle maker and features commonly found on different models. It also covers commonly used ingredients, suggested ccessories and cooking tips. Then come the recipes.
Chapters in this cookbook include:
- Classic Waffles
- Breakfast and Brunch
- Snacks and Lite Bites
- Grab-and-Go Burgers and Sandwiches
- Main Dishes
- Vegetarian Waffles
- Desserts and Treats
The recipes are all easy to understand and call for ingredients you either frequently have on hand or can easily find at a nearby grocery store. There are many prep and cooking tips throughtout the book, as well as a lot of variations. Prep and cooking time aren’t listed individualy so you’ll need to read through each recipe in order to determine if you have time to make it. Some of the recipes have photos, but the majority do not. Using the waffle maker to prepare snacks and meals is a fun way to serve a tasty food, as well as a great way to cook without heating up the house.
Here’s a recipe from the 150 Best Waffle Maker Recipes cookbook.

Waffled Veggie Tots
Bite-size snacks packed with veggies and cheese? Yes, please! You can put them together with just a few ingredients and customize them with your favorite veggies — or make a few batches and offer up different vegetables for a sampler platter.
Makes 10 to 12 tots
- Use a sharp (old) Cheddar or smoked Cheddar for a sophisticated flavor, or use medium Cheddar or mozzarella for a milder flavor. Or experiment with your favorite shreddable, melting-style cheese.
- If you have frozen vegetables, there’s no need to cook them first. Simply measure, thaw and squeeze dry.
- Use a heatproof silicone basting brush like a broom to sweep loose crumbs out of the waffle maker in between batches.
- These veggie tots are best enjoyed soon after baking; leftovers can be cooled and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 1 day, then reheated in the waffle maker on low or in a toaster oven.
- 3⁄4 cup panko, divided (175 mL)
- 1 large egg
- 1⁄2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (125 mL)
- 1⁄4 tsp salt (1 mL)
- 1⁄4 tsp freshly ground black pepper (1 mL)
- 1 cup shredded raw zucchini or finely chopped cooked broccoli or cauliflower (250 mL)
- Nonstick cooking spray
• Preheat waffle maker to medium-high
1. Spread 1⁄4 cup (60 mL) of the panko in a shallow dish.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together egg, remaining panko, cheese, salt and pepper.
3. Spread vegetables on a heavy-duty paper towel or lint-free tea towel, roll up and squeeze out excess liquid. Add to egg mixture and stir until evenly combined.
4. Spray waffle maker with cooking spray. In batches as necessary, squeeze a slightly heaping tablespoonful (15 mL) of veggie mixture into a rough ball and gently roll in panko. As they are rolled, place tots in waffle maker, leaving at least 11⁄2 inches (4 cm) in between. Cook for about 3 minutes or until golden brown and edges no longer look wet. Transfer to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining veggie mixture and panko, spraying waffle maker as necessary between batches. Discard any excess panko. Serve warm.
