Sure, the process is a bit more involved than taking leftovers and waffling them but the end result looks pretty friggin worth it. After some trial and error with simply adding macaroni and cheese to waffle batter, then trying to make a grilled cheese with macaroni and cheese in the middle, the perfect method was achieved.
This time I tried doing for macaroni and cheese what KFC did for the chicken sandwich with their Double Down: replace the bread with the filling.
Can you say GENIUS? Using the macaroni as the bread and filling the slices with some shredded cheese resulted in the ooey-gooey cheesy waffle that creator J. Kenji Lopez-Alt was looking for.
Now that the ultimate waffle has been achieved what the hell else can we waffle?
