Waffle day is always on the 25th of March (a tradition that started in Sweden). This year it happens to be on easter but that will not prevent me from eating these awesome frasvåfflor (Swedish waffles). In our house the waffle iron has only been used in the month of March and mostly just 1 day a year. It does not have to be like that anymore since you can actually make a lot of delicious dinner recipes using a waffle iron!
Puff pastry with avocado, bacon and cheese
This recipe was really quick in case you have sheets of frozen puff pastry! I guess the variations are endless in case you have puff pastry at hand!
Mashed potato and avocado waffles
These requires a little more time, but fairly ok if you already have some leftover mashed potatoes. Recipe for mashed potato and avocado waffles
Even if it sounds good I would not recommend doing an omelette/frittata in the waffle iron. Lessons learned: it can only hold 1 egg and it is a mess cleaning up after it.
