Last year I was obsessed with buying a waffle iron, and like my brand new ice cream maker, it sat in my basement for months till I started making waffles and literally wanted to throw everything into my waffle iron. When I was thinking of new recipe ideas for my Easy Weeknight Meals and Back to School episodes I came up with this idea of turning a savory waffle into a grilled cheese sandwich called the Waffwich. Turns out, this wasn’t such a unique idea, but it’s still pretty damn good.

This is a great quick dinner served with ketchup and a side salad but is also perfect for those school lunch boxes. I added Turkey to my Waffwich’s because of my carnivore high schooler but it’s just as delicious with plain cheese. I chose to make my Waffwich straight in my waffle iron, but if you’d like to pile it up higher with fillings, you could just make the savoury waffles and stack them in the oven to allow the cheese to melt.

My waffle iron is round and you can break the waffle into easy quarters, this recipe also would be great as a snack for a kids’s party and a little quarter open face with filling and a dollop of mustard would make a very sophisticated canape. Enjoy
