5 Foods to Make in a Mini Waffle Maker

As a college student, it is natural to get tired of repetitive meals in the dining halls. A great cost-effective alternative to eating off campus is to make food in your dorm. A mini waffle maker is very small and easy to store, but can be used to make many foods other than waffles.

 

Cinnamon Rolls

 

This classic breakfast treat tastes delectable in waffle form. Making them in a waffle maker is much quicker than in the oven. With canned cinnamon roll dough, just pop one on a greased waffle maker, and press it for about two minutes, or until it is golden brown. Once they have cooled, top with icing and enjoy!

 

Scrambled Eggs

 

From time to time, you may find yourself missing the eggs your family cooked on Saturday mornings, or the breakfast sandwiches you could get at any time of the day at home. Luckily, scrambled eggs can be made into a waffle-shaped patty! Just whisk (you can use a fork!) an egg or two in a bowl, and wait for the edges to get crispy. You can even add spinach and tomatoes for an extra serving of vegetables, or turn it into a sandwich for breakfast on-the-go.

 

Apple Chips

 

If you are looking for a new healthy snack, look no further than one of the most popular fall fruits: apples! Thinly slice some apples, top them with some cinnamon, and grill them in the waffle iron for two minutes. You can eat these as a snack, to compliment a sandwich, throw on a salad, or even as a dessert. If you are an apple pie lover, you need to try this!

 

Grilled Cheese

 

This childhood favorite is an easy meal, only requiring two ingredients! Choose any bread and your favorite type of cheese, and simply press it in the waffle maker until crisp and melty. Served with a can of tomato soup, you can have a warm and tasty lunch ready in mere minutes.

 

Chocolate Chip Cookies

 

When you are in need of a homemade snack, chocolate chip cookies are a must. It can be hard to find the time and patience for a baking endeavor in college, so all you need to speed up the process is premade cookie dough and a waffle maker! Roll the dough into a ball, pinch it partially flat, and cook for 3 to 6 minutes. If you are feeling ambitious, Food Network has made a recipe particularly suited for waffle makers!
