Beyond Breakfast – New Ways to Make Waffles

Fun Waffle Recipes You’ll Love

If you think waffles were only meant for maple syrup, think again. There’s a world of possibilities for how to make waffles. These recipe ideas will show you how waffles can be a snack, dessert, or even a meal. Use your imagination and discover the delicious ways to make waffles work for your menu.

Bubble Waffle Nachos

Savory Snacks

Waffles are transformed into snacking favorites like nachos! Bubble Waffle Nachos are made using Old Fashioned Waffle Mix (#5018) and a combination of Nacho Cheese and Cheddar Cheese Popcorn Seasonings. Cut into triangles and serve up with chili and cheese. Plus, you can try other savory flavors like Ranch or BBQ to create your own unique snacking sensation.  

Pizza Bubble Waffles

Make It A Meal

Super hungry? Nothing satisfies like tacos or pizza! These two favorites take on a new life in a waffle form. Pizza Bubble Waffles are easy to make. Just pour a bottom layer of batter, then add toppings like cheese and pepperoni, then add a top layer of batter and bake. Serve with pizza sauce as a dip. Another hearty option is the Bubble Waffle Taco. You create the shell out of the waffle, then fill with your choice of taco ingredients.

Grilled Cheese Bubble Waffles

Kid-Friendly Picks

Having options for kids can make your location attractive to parents. Waffles are a fun way to give a twist to classics like grilled cheese and PB&J. To make the Grilled Cheese Bubble Waffles, just use bread and cheese like normal, but bake in a seasoned Puff Popper Baker, then cut into bite-sized poppers. The childhood classic, PB&J Waffles, is made in a similar fashion. Plus, you can cut into strips and serve with jelly for dipping.

Pumpkin Spice Waffles

Sweet Treats

For desserts, waffle dogs are convenient confections served up on a stick. They are made even more delicious when you make them in seasonal flavors like Red Velvet drizzled with white chocolate or Pumpkin Spice.

Or give your ice cream cones a new twist with Puff Popper Waffle Cones. Visually appealing and appetizing, they will bring fresh interest to customers.

Create your own gourmet waffles in flavors like Birthday Cake or Lemon Pound Cake. Or choose from a wide selection of flavors in our Signature Blends® line to invent custom creations your customers can’t find anywhere else.
