A few years ago I discovered that you can cook bacon in your best belgian waffle maker 2016 maker, and I’ve been intrigued by waffle maker recipes ever since! Who knew a simple waffle maker could be so versatile!? I’ve tried out several different recipes since then (with varying degrees of success), and I’m looking forward to sharing those with you today.
Why make foods in a waffle maker? Well I’m glad you asked! ;-) Since waffle makers apply heat to both sides of a food at the same time, so you can often cook them faster than you’d normally be able to. Another reason why you might want to cook with a waffle maker is that it can be easier to clean up than standard methods. (Especially if you have one with removable plates!) And finally, cooking foods in a waffle maker is just plain FUN. And sometimes that’s all the reason you need! :-) So without further ado, here are 15 foods you can (and should!) make in your waffle maker.
1. Brownies
Making brownies is definitely among my favorite ways to use my waffle maker! The key to success is adding one additional egg to your prepared brownie batter. Then just pour it into your preheated waffle maker, and cook!

2. Pizza
You can make quick and tasty right in your waffle maker! Use your favorite homemade pizza dough, or buy a tube of prepared dough in the refrigerated section at the store.

Start with a hot waffle iron. Spread your pizza dough out on the iron and close the lid. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, then flip (if desired) and cook for another 2 minutes or so. Lift the lid, then add pizza sauce, cheese, and your toppings of choice. Hold the lid slightly open until the cheese melts, then dig in!
