Waffle Sandwiches So Good They'll Change Your Perspective On Mornings

Waffle sandwiches make so much sense it's stupid.

Waffles are one of our favorite foods. Light and fluffy buttermilk waffles, savory cheesy waffles or hearty whole wheat pumpkin waffles -- we'll take 'em however they come.

While butter and maple syrup are often all you need, waffles also go great with all kinds of fillings and accompaniments. Waffles are a unique palette for everything from fried chicken to ice cream; and we're currently swooning over waffles in sandwich form.

Waffle sandwiches just make sense. Why eat a hot, pressed panini sandwich out of bread when you could be eating one out of waffles? And why make a waffle without something sandwiched in the middle? Waffles make awesome breakfast sandwiches with eggs and bacon, but they also make excellent desserts, with things like Nutella and strawberries.

Waffle sandwiches are a gift in and of themselves, and also because they give us so many more ways to eat waffles. They're so easy, delicious and obvious, they could just change the way you think about food.
