Frozen waffles can be more than just a vehicle for butter and maple syrup. When used to make grilled cheese or panini-style sandwiches, they really are the greatest invention since sliced bread. Using your choice of fillings or any of those below, assemble a sandwich, then follow the directions.

  • Bacon, avocado, and Cheddar
  • Peanut butter and jelly
  • Red onion, black olives, and Feta
  • Egg, spinach, and Swiss cheese
  • Smoked turkey, watercress, and Brie
  • Butter, banana, brown sugar, and cinnamon
  • Chocolate bars and marshmallows or Marshmallow Fluff
Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet over medium heat. Heat the sandwich, pressing occasionally and flipping once with a spatula, until the waffles turn crisp.
