Did you know that today is International Waffle Day? I love a good “food based” holiday. Any excuse to eat a food I love works for me. I am just head over heels in love with National Peanut Butter Day.

Anyways, International Waffle Day started as a kick off of spring in Sweden and due to international love of this breakfast food, it has become a worldwide celebratory day. But did you know that waffles aren’t only for breakfast?

Today (March 25th) is International Waffle Day and I have compiled a list of waffle ideas to eat all day long. Who knew waffles could be more than just a breakfast food?

I’ve got a great recipe for homemade waffles as well as some ideas on how you can serve them for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert.

Using the above recipe, you can create these marvelous meals.

Waffles for Breakfast

A thin layer or Nutella with thinly sliced fresh fruit on top

or whipped cream and a drizzle of maple syrup.

Waffles for Lunch*

Make a grilled cheese by putting a layer of your favorite cheese between two waffles and maybe some tomato slices as well

or make a waffle Monty Cristo.

Waffles for Dinner*

Chop up some sausage for on top and layer with gravy

or make a pizza using your waffle as the crust – the best part is everyone can make their own with the toppings they want.

Waffles for Dessert

A big scoop of your favorite ice cream drizzled with caramel or chocolate syrup

or layer with mini marshmallows and chocolate chips for a delicious s’more.

* You may want to reduce the amount of sugar and/or increase the amount of salt for the lunch and dinner meals to make it a savory waffle. You can also play around with the amount of vanilla.

Need some more inspiration?  My friend Angi over at Schneider Peeps is letting me share her recipe for whole wheat waffles that not only taste fabulous, but freeze well in case you need a late-night waffle fix.

  1. Hey now, I appreciate you sharing this recipe. I have this very cool waffle maker, but I have been disappointed in the waffles themselves. Maybe the warm milk is the answer. Love your enthusiasm, Jessica. You brighten my day!
