I hope you’ve already eaten, because after you see this you’re going to want to gorge yourself with all the fluffy waffles you can get your little mitts on. I can hear you now, “Siri, where is the nearest waffle house??”
For those of you who don’t know why we’re going on about waffles, yesterday, August 5th, was National Waffle Day! Yes, we know there are so many weird food holidays, but if you love food as much as we do, you’ll take any excuse to eat something special… And, by special we mean a food that is typically regarded as “unhealthy”.
Unhealthy or not, the waffle is a beautiful thing. Sweet? Savory? With so many variations to enjoy, you can’t say no to the waffle.
Here are some delicious (and sometimes weird) waffles to try:
These hash brown waffles are the perfect accompaniment to any savory brunch dish. I need these in my life.

Brownie batter made into waffles is as simple and delicious as it gets. Pure chocolate bliss.
A classic chicken and waffles recipe that’ll take you back to the South. Even if you’ve never been to the South, you’ll want to go after trying this sweet and savory combination.
If you know anything about food, you know that you can make anything red velvet flavor. Cookies, pancakes, cake, cupcakes, whoopie pies… Waffles are not exempt from this list.
There is always a place for Nutella in our hearts, especially when they are sandwiched between two waffles.
Another savory waffle recipe, this turns your average cornbread into a plate by shaping it in a waffle iron. Top with all the beans, beef, and cheese your heart deesires.
This is the stuff that haunts our dreams. Peanut butter and chocolate atop a stack of waffles. Brb, eating my feelings because I can’t have these right now.
I could probably look through 100 million pictures of waffles and not get sick of it, but I think I need to get back to work.
However, I think Amy Poehler once said…
