Waffle Iron Recipes

What won’t waffle? Waffle irons were once considered single-purpose kitchen tools, but we now know they have a multitude of uses. Waffle iron recipes continue to surprise and delight, with these waffled smashed potatoes at the top of our list. Enjoy them alongside a (tofu) scramble or even as a dinner side dish. What will you waffle next? Pro tip: Pre-smash the potatoes just a bit with a potato masher, or your favorite collegiate mug would work well too. No one wants uneven waffled potatoes.
