My waffle iron

(20 Posts)

I don't use it. Because I never make waffles. I didn't think the whole 'yeah let's buy a waffle iron' thing through. I do this a lot.

So to save giving it away to someone else who will probably neglect it in the cupboard next to the equally neglected Brita filter jug, what can I use it for that doesn't involve a waffle recipe?

Preferably breakfasty things. My aim is to impress DS this morning with something unusual and fun. The toastie maker thread was amazing (I was THIS CLOSE to buying one).

Any ideas?

Ahh shit I posted this in AIBU didn't I?

Don't know but my DH made the most delicious waffles yesterday topped with a choice of maple syrup, chocolate sauce or maple syrup...

I bet you could do omelettes in them.

You are totally unreasonable to expect people to resolve your waffle iron dilemma. smile

You should exercise more self control and thinnk things through in future..Indeed on reflection, you should carry the waffle iron around with you all the time so that when next tempted to buy an equivalent, you have one in your handbag to remind you not to be so silly...

You can do amazing toasted sandwiches in them.
Yes omelets also work.

I'm definitely NBU. I decided this before I posted, so that's settled.

Omelettes eh... Hmm.

Mavis,
The smilie was supposed to be a hint.... after all you said shit you posted in AIBU...

But I do think if you are an impulsive buyer of tut, you should carry the iron in your handbag to stop you repeating yourself...

I REALLY want a waffle maker now!

Rhi envy

I know Professor, I was joking!

Those savoury waffles look amazing.

OohMavis Sat 06-Aug-16 08:25:18

I wonder if it would make a decent hash brown? And actually cook it all the way through?

Fourarmsv2 Sat 06-Aug-16 08:25:22

We're staying in a hotel with a waffle maker at breakfast. I'm quite excited! [sad oerson]
