4 Recipes In Honor of #InternationalWaffleDay

It's International Waffle Day.  So, there's no better time to think about... waffles. And, lest you think they're just for breakfast, we'd like to help to change your mind.

If you're a fan, you definitely want to check out these recipes.

Cornmeal Waffles
Let's start off with the basics -- a good solid waffle. These cornmeal waffles are light. And crisp. And flavorful. And the cornmeal gives them just the right amount of "oomph" to push them right past "good" and so far into "fabulous" that we have to just take a moment, right now, to reflect.

Fried Chicken & Waffle Sandwich
This beauty was inspired by a sandwich we sampled at Roots Restaurant & Cellar in Milwaukee. We took hot sauce-infused cornmeal waffles and sidled them up right against pieces of fried chicken, which we topped with finely shredded kale tossed with a deliciously refreshing dill ranch dressing. Another waffle on top, and all of a sudden we had a pretty spectacular waffle sandwich.

When you combine leftover fried chicken with waffles and mushroom milk gravy, it's a match made in heaven. 

Waffle Brownie Sundaes
Yeah. Waffles for dessert. It's a thing. And it's one of the best things you've ever tried.These unique brownies take just minutes to prepare in your waffle iron, and they’re perfect served up fresh and warm with a dollop of ice cream and any number of your favorite sundae toppings.
