Sweet or savory, waffles are the perfect canvas for a variety of flavors!

1. Cookies & Cream Waffles

We’re making it possible to eat Oreos™ for breakfast by crushing them up, mixing them into waffle batter and then topping with whipped cream and another sprinkling of Oreos™. You’re welcome!

2. Nutella Crunch Waffles

The line between breakfast and dessert just got a lot more blurry thanks to these dark, chocolaty Nutella™ waffles. And we’re not one bit upset about it.

3. Mac and Cheese Waffles

Is it breakfast, or is it lunch? That’s up to you. We highly recommend sandwiching creamy mac and cheese between waffles to create the tallest stack of carbs you’ll ever see—or eat.

4. Cinnamon Sugar Waffle Pretzels

Turn a tube of refrigerated biscuit dough into pretzels—waffle pretzels! They taste just like a cinnamon sugar food court pretzel; no trip to the mall required.

5. Cornbread Chili Waffles

It’s chili with cornbread like you’ve never seen it before! Turn cornbread mix into waffles and top with ultra-convenient store-bought chili for a dinner that’s just crazy enough to work.

6.  Brownie Batter Waffles

Topped with whipped cream and strawberries, these babies definitely verge into dessert territory. So why not go all-in and serve them à la mode with a scoop of ice cream?

7. Parmesan-Pesto Waffles

This recipe is a BFD (breakfast for dinner). Savory Parmesan and pesto go right in the batter, and then, of course, you put an egg on it.

8. Easy Cinnamon Roll Waffles

When life gives you cinnamon rolls, why not make cinnamon roll waffles? It’s the OG waffle-iron hack and we still can’t get enough of it. Hello, easiest morning treat-to-self ever.

9. All-in-One Bacon and Cheddar Waffles

Add bacon and cheddar to ordinary waffles and you've got yourself a breakfast so crazy delicious you might be tempted to eat it for dinner, too. And we fully support that decision.

10. Rocky Road Brownie Waffles

Rocky Road Waffles

A breakfast staple turned into a decadent dessert, or a decadent dessert turned into a new breakfast staple? Either way: yes, please!

11. Potato Dill Waffles

You’re not a true waffle aficionado until you've tried waffles stuffed with hash browns. Pro tip: load them up with crispy bacon and a fried egg for an all-out hash brown waffle experience.

12. The Wonut (Waffle Donut)


Wonuts, wherein two breakfast favorites—waffles and donuts—become one decadent wonder. Best of all, you can top ‘em with even more sweetness (looking at you, Nutella™).

13. Cheese-Stuffed 3-Cheese and Chorizo Savory Waffles

Cheddar, Monterey Jack and fontina, are all present and accounted for in these loaded chorizo dinner waffles, so when we say they’re easy, and cheesy, you know we mean it.

14. Chocolate Bacon Waffles

These sweet and savoring darlings are crispy on the outside and loaded with bacon and chocolate on the inside. Which means every bite is perfectly engineered to please.

15. Chicken and Waffle Wings

We’re taking the classic chicken and waffles mash-up one step further with this clever twist. Dip chicken wings in waffle batter, cook on a waffle iron and wait for everyone’s jaws to drop.

16. Black Forest Cherry Waffle Cake

Chocolate and cherries and waffles and cake: all of our favorite things, all in one bite. The fact that it comes together in just 30 minutes only makes us love it more (if that’s even possible).
