These 10 Waffle Iron Hacks Will Blow Your Mind

Check out these DELICIOUS waffle iron hacks to spice up your meals. Now everything can have that iconic checkered pressed pattern!

The waffle iron is a relatively underrated kitchen tool in my opinion. A decent amount of people have them, but they’re not necessarily used very often or to their full potential. It might seem like their purpose is very singular: waffles. However, if you’re imaginative or know where to to look, there are some very interesting, unique things you can make with a waffle iron! Here are 10 waffle iron hacks that will actually blow your mind.

1. Grilled cheese

Who says waffle iron hacks are only for breakfast foods? Oh yes, you can make grilled cheese in a waffle iron, and, honestly, it is A LOT easier than the traditional methods of cooking the gooey food. By using a waffle iron to cook your grilled cheese, you don’t have to worry about flipping it at all! This one is super easy and makes the process a lot quicker.

2. Corndogs

Because no one really wants to fool with the scorching grease normally required to make a corndog, here’s an amazing hack! Wrap a hot dog in bread, then roll it in pancake batter. Put it in your waffle iron until the batter is golden brown and you have a delicious and unique hot dog (with waffle stripes no less)!

3. Eggs

There’s no limit to the abilities of the waffle iron! If you want to add a decorative flare to your eggs, here’s the trick for you. Except it’s not even really a trick at all! You can do it with either scrambled or sunny side up eggs. If you scramble them, just pour them in the iron like you would any other batter and close it until it’s done! It actually even ends up looking like a normal waffle! If you want to do a sunny side up, just crack the egg over the iron (but don’t shut it, of course). Limit the amount of dishes you’ll have to clean later by just cooking everything in one waffle iron!
