Liège Waffles

Liège waffles are a bit of a long haul, prep-wise, but they’re absolutely worth it. Pearl sugar caramelizes the crisp edges, while yeasted dough makes them lighter than regular waffles.

Waffle Iron Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Waffle iron grilled cheese sandwich means no standing at the skillet carefully tending grilled cheese in a skillet so it doesn’t burn. Nope. Just slap some cheese on buttered bread, toss it on this underutilized piece of kitchen equipment, and dinner is as good as done.
