9 savory waffles ideas to try
1. Surprising Chicken Waffles
Have you ever tried salty waffles? Check this out! We made surprise-waffles! When you’d expect less, you’ll find a fried chicken bite. Cooking is funnier when you try something new, so we give them heart shape and put them on skewers, like lollipops!
2. Cheesy Prosciutto and Salami Waffles
Normally, when someone says “waffles”, you think about sweet treats, right? Not necessarily. These are seriously decadent waffle sandwiches. They are hot, meaty, and cheesy and for the best result, our advice is to prepare your own waffle dough. Get started.
3. Spinach Oatmeal Waffles
Here is an excellent option for a healthy breakfast! These waffles are made from a mix of spinach, oats, and greek yogurt. There’s no flour in the mix, and they can be topped with sweet and salty ingredients. And another good thing about them is that they can be made in just 10-15 minutes.
4. Cauliflower Waffles
Waffles may be a perfect treat for some, but not when you’re on a gluten-free diet. So, we’ve made these ones, with cauliflower as its main ingredient, along with some mozzarella and parmesan. They became some of our favorite salty waffles, especially when topped with some delicious toppings. Like bacon, avocado, even fried egg.
5. Chicken-Topped Hummus Waffles
Hummus waffles? We assure you there’s nothing wrong with your sight! And, it’s a dish that really brings the best out of two worlds. You just lay the hummus on the heated waffle iron and they’re good to go. And, if you want one more tip, they’re great topped with some crispy and spicy fried chicken!
6. Cheesy Tater Tot Waffle With Bacon
These guys are mega-delicious and there’s nothing easier than to assemble them. The crispy tots and bacon backed up by the bell pepper dices are being engulfed by the melted cheddar. The sky is the limit as to what and how many ingredients you toss between the two potato waffles. Enjoy your breakfast!
7. Salty Waffles, Two Ways
This may not be the lightest snack you will serve, but sure is delicious! Plus, if you have a waffle iron, you get to use it on something else other than regular sweet waffles. We have prepared two versions of salty waffles, one with salami and mozzarella, and the second one with ground beef and parmesan. Try them both and see which one is your favorite!
8. Waffles With Mushrooms
Be they sweet or savory, waffles are always a good idea. You can enjoy them at any time of the day as dessert, starter or even main course. This time, just add in the batter some fried mushrooms and mozzarella.
