Book Review: 150 Best Waffle Maker Recipes

I have enjoyed giving my 80s style waffle maker new life, cooking omelets, potato crisps and even crab cakes on the device.  I like the crispiness of the end products.  When I was asked to review this cook book, I didn't hesitate, knowing I'd find even more products to make.  

The authors, Marilyn Haugen and Jennifer Mackenzie have written several other cookbooks using other common kitchen appliances. The book "expands the usefulness of waffle makers beyond the traditional" with chapters featuring breakfast recipes and chapters on lunch, snacks and main dish entrees. The products are all quick cooking.

My favorite recipe is in the "Breakfast/Brunch" chapter for Cinnamon Rolls.

I modified the recipe to include 1/2 whole grain wheat flour and 12 Tablespoons added sugar versus the 20 Tablespoons in the book.  The result was still delicious.  The waffled rolls were not doughy.  The crispy cinnamon-brown sugar filling that oozed onto the grids was delicious.  

The cookbook has many versions of the classic breakfast waffle.  I loved the Multigrain Waffles, made with whole wheat and barley flours, oats, flaxseed and yogurt.

There are vegetarian and vegan recipes.  Here's my Veggie Quesadillas with black beans, corn and cheese, sandwiched in corn tortillas.

Also for lunch was the tuna melt sandwich featured at the top of the page.  

For the Veggie Tot recipe, I ground broccoli, brussel sprouts and zucchini to form these tasty dinner bites.

My favorite recipe of all was the one for Grilled Shrimp Skewer, featuring a delicious Honey Barbecue recipe.  I will try this one again!

Thank you Robert Rose for the complimentary review copy.  The above post and pictures are my own.  I received no other compensation for this review, other than the pleasure of creating meals and eating! 

Now home cooks can enjoy scrumptious restaurant-quality sweet and savory waffles.

To say that that waffles are enjoying a moment is an understatement. The Waffle House sells 145 waffles per minute — 877 million waffles and counting since they opened — and almost 10% of North Americans eat waffles at least once a week. But the really hot trend in waffles is taking the experience beyond breakfast to create savory sandwich-style meals. If the lineups outside waffles-only restaurants are any indication, waffles are here to stay.
Bestselling authors Marilyn and Jennifer have created 150 delightfully delicious and inspired waffle recipes, from delectable breakfast and brunch options to snacks, burgers and sandwiches to tantalizing desserts and treats.
