Dig Your Fork into International Waffle Day

March 25, 2014

Today is a holiday that all ages can enjoy at breakfast, lunch or dinner – International Waffle Day! Whether waffles are a regular part of your breakfast repertoire, or you are the type to order them at your favorite brunch spot, waffles exude a sense of warmth and comfort from their fluffy interior to the crisp exterior that shatters against your teeth upon the first bite.

Even though waffles are an obvious choice for breakfast, having them for lunch, dinner, dessert or even a snack is never out of the question.

As you consider your waffle celebration, you first have to decide: “savory or sweet?” Do you lean more towards Cheese ‘N Mushroom Waffle Wedges or a Strawberry-Topped Waffle with Sweet Cream Sauce full of ooey-gooey sweet goodness? For a quick afternoon snack, try a waffle warm from the toaster with your favorite nut butter.

Next, is a question that depends solely on the person and their individual tastes, but is still equally as important; the type of accompaniment to your waffle of choice. Are you more of a meat-side, fruit-side, egg-side or the diner that goes all out and gets whipped topping and ice cream? Whether you prefer sausage or bacon, an egg and cheese waffle sandwich is never a bad choice. For the fruit obsessed, we recommend Waffles With Fruit and Honey Sauce, which are versatile and adaptable to include any variety of fruit. For a kid-friendly lunch or dinner, these PB&J Waffle Sandwiches are sure to be a hit. When you’re looking for the perfect ice cream to waffle ratio for dessert, look no further than these Banana Split Waffles or Waffle Bananas Foster.

Don’t forget to head to the frozen food aisles when you’re looking to fulfill your International Waffle Day inspired fix. From the fruity Kellogg’s Special K Red Berries Waffles, to the sinfully sweet Eggo Chocolate Chip Waffles, make the freezer case your one-stop waffle destination! There you’ll also find whole grain and gluten-free waffle options to meet all of your dietary needs.

Or, if you have any leftover cottage cheese or ricotta cheese in your fridge, put your cooking skills to the test with Whole Grain Waffles with Fruit or Ricotta Cheese Waffles with Fruit.

After International Waffle Day comes to a close, we hope you embrace the endless possibilities that waffles bring to the plate. Create your own waffle day and throw a make-your-own waffle brunch party with friends and family.
