How many great ideas begin with a nagging thought in the middle of the night that should disappear by morning, but doesn’t? For Daniel Shumski, it was: Will it waffle? Hundreds of hours, countless messes, and 53 perfected recipes later, that answer is a resounding: Yes, it will! Steak? Yes! Pizza? Yes! Apple pie? Emphatically yes.

And that’s the beauty of being a waffle iron chef—waffling food other than waffles is not just a novelty but an innovation that leads to a great end product, all while giving the cook the bonus pleasure of doing something cool, fun, and vaguely nerdy (or giving a reluctant eater—your child, say—a great reason to dig in). Waffled bacon reaches perfect crispness without burned edges, cooks super fast in the two-sided heat source, and leaves behind just the right amount of fat to waffle some eggs. Waffled Sweet Potato Gnocchi, Pressed Potato and Cheese Pierogi, and Waffled Meatballs all end up with dimples just right for trapping their delicious sauces. A waffle iron turns leftover mac ’n’ cheese into Revitalized Macaroni and Cheese, which is like a decadent version of a grilled cheese sandwich with its golden, buttery, slightly crisp exterior and soft, melty, cheesy interior.

Baker & Taylor
Shares recipes for dishes that can be prepared using a waffle iron, from traditional waffles to crispy sesame waffled kale, chicken parmesan with waffled vegetables, and waffled macaroni and cheese.

Seriously one of the most fun cookbooks I've ever looked at!
This is a great way to get your kids cooking, or to throw some fun into a boring weekday routine. Some classics that make sense like quesadillas and grilled cheese, and some crazy ideas like waffled soft-shell crab and tamale pie.
Check it out!

Not to be confused with the "Will it Waffle" youtube videos.

I tried the waffled stuffing recipe. Not too shabby!

Neat book! Not the most practical method of cooking if you have a normal kitchen but if you were in a dorm room this would open up lots of possibilities!
