18 Wildly Wonderful Recipes You Can Make With Frozen Waffles

Life is like a box of frozen waffles: DELICIOUS.

Oh, you thought frozen waffles were reserved for rushed mornings, for tossing in the toaster and maybe drizzling with a bit of store-bought syrup, did you? Ha! Not so.

While homemade waffles emanate that "made with love" vibe, sometimes you don't have to act in such grandiose ways to craft a culinary marvel.

The frozen waffle, you see, is a crucial freezer staple. It's like a cheap, blank canvas begging for your artistry. It lends itself to wildly wonderful and wacky concoctions that can happen quickly. Surely, it's much less of a hassle to defrost a frozen waffle and make magic than it is to get out the waffle iron, the mixer, the flour and mix it all from scratch.

Since you won't have to exert any energy whipping up a waffle, you can put that excess brain power to use: You'll think, hmm, perhaps I'll make a bacon casserole from this box of frozen waffles. Or, gee, I really have the urge to spear these little waffles onto kebab sticks. The world is your frozen waffle ... now get to it:
