I do not know what possessed me to get this cookbook other than the fact that I own a waffle maker. Anyway, I'm glad that my whim's led me to this awesome book. Just as it sounds, this book includes recipes that are all made in a waffle iron, and it's more than fancy waffles. Separated into sections by type of meal: Breakfast and Brunch, Main Courses, Snacks, Sides and Small Bites and Desserts, there is plenty more to make than plain waffles.

There are simpler recipes such as Crispy Waffled Bacon and Eggs where the waffle iron just acts as a containment system for the grease, there are also more complicated and delicious recipes such as Waffled Chocolate-Stuffed French Toast. I tried this recipe...it's totally worth it. Plus there are suggestions for other delicious things to stuff your French toast with. For the main course, I had to try the Green Chili Waffled Quesadillas. I threw in some of my own stuff for the filling, but the effect of the waffle iron definitely made the quesadilla have a good texture and melted the cheese evenly. Some of the main courses caught me off guard; I don't think I'm ready to try Waffled Filet Mignon or waffled Spaghetti and Meatballs yet!

If you are looking for something different, like keeping down the kitchen mess and love your waffle iron...this is the book for you.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0761176462, Paperback)

How many great ideas begin with a nagging thought in the middle of the night that should disappear by morning, but doesn’t? For Daniel Shumski, it was: Will it waffle? Hundreds of hours, countless messes, and 53 perfected recipes later, that answer is a resounding: Yes, it will! Steak? Yes! Pizza? Yes! Apple pie? Emphatically yes.

And that’s the beauty of being a waffle iron chef—waffling food other than waffles is not just a novelty but an innovation that leads to a great end product, all while giving the cook the bonus pleasure of doing something cool, fun, and vaguely nerdy (or giving a reluctant eater—your child, say—a great reason to dig in). Waffled bacon reaches perfect crispness without burned edges, cooks super fast in the two-sided heat source, and leaves behind just the right amount of fat to waffle some eggs. Waffled Sweet Potato Gnocchi, Pressed Potato and Cheese Pierogi, and Waffled Meatballs all end up with dimples just right for trapping their delicious sauces. A waffle iron turns leftover mac ’n’ cheese into Revitalized Macaroni and Cheese, which is like a decadent version of a grilled cheese sandwich with its golden, buttery, slightly crisp exterior and soft, melty, cheesy interior.

How often do you use your waffler? Shumski shows you creative ways to think about your food, from waffled bacon and eggs to waffled tuna salad, and waffled s'mores!
