Time for another Tony Tries It… where I try something you might have seen online and let you know my thoughts about it. The first installment was Tator Tot Waffles.
For this next one I’m returning to the waffle iron to try out a recipe idea both my oldest daughter and I originally saw in our Facebook news feeds. We thought it looked interesting so today we decided to give it a try. Here’s a link to the inspiration for this post.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Oil spray to keep things from sticking to the waffle iron
A tube of refrigerator biscuits
Pepperoni, cooked sausage, or Canadian bacon.
The original recipe has you putting these together on the waffle iron. Rather than risk getting burned we put ours together on a cutting board and then used a pancake turner to transfer them to the hot waffle iron.
Instead of mini pepperoni we used full size turkey pepperoni slices and cut them in fourths.
My daughter pretty much did all the work and delegated the picture taking to me. Here’s one ready to cook.
And this is how it looked 3 – 4 minutes later.
That wasn’t “pretty” enough so my daughter decided to plate one up like you’d see on a cooking show. I’ll admit she made it look really good!
Tips and Take-Aways:
We all really enjoyed this and plan on making them again some time. Not sure if they exist, but garlic flavored biscuits would really add to the flavor. If not adding some garlic bread sprinkle would be good too.
My kids aren’t onion fans but I think adding a little minced onion to the toppings in the middle would be good and add flavor.
My oldest preferred to eat hers on a plate like you’d eat a normal waffle. I liked to quarter mine and dip the pieces in the extra sauce warmed up.
You could take this concept and adapt it to other things too. Like tuna melts or sloppy joes. They could be interesting.
All in all, we give this a big thumbs up for ease, taste, and fun. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
If you ever run across something you think I should try be sure and let me know. I might use it for an upcoming “Tony Tries It”.Pizza Waffles! Tips & Pics! Click To Tweet
