If you thought your waffle maker could just make plain old waffles, think again! Get creative with these 8 fun waffle iron recipes.

How much storage space do you have in your kitchen? Do you have a spacious kitchen with loads of space for formal dishes and every appliance you could think of, or do you have a closet-sized kitchen with barely enough room for a microwave and coffee pot? I live in San Francisco, and “spacious” is not a word you usually think of when you are referring to houses here. We are packed in like sardines, and we have to make the most of every square foot. Our kitchen isn’t too bad after we remodeled it a few years ago, but space is still a luxury. I don’t have a food processor or blender because I don’t know where I would put them, and every dish and appliance in our house really needs to earn its keep.

Except the waffle maker.

Seriously, what was I thinking buying such a unitasker appliance? You know how many times we have eaten waffles in the two years I have owned this thing? Maybe four. Maybe. Yet there it is, squeezed between my essential mixing bowls and baking dishes, as if it is equally important. When you have a seemingly wasteful purchase hanging around your cabinets, there is only one thing to do: Use it. That baby is going to be getting fired up much more often now that I have these 8 creative waffle iron recipes! Potatoes, cornbread, sandwiches, and more will now have those beautiful criss-cross patterns we all know and love. Pull out your waffle maker and get cooking!
