And if you're like me, and don't cook a ton of waffles you'll be happy you have a new use for your appliance. Oh the possibilities, what else should I make on my waffle iron? I shared these on Instagram (do you follow tamil-recipes on Instagram?) last week and everyone went crazy! They are great as an appetizer, but I served them over lettuce and enjoyed them as a salad. They are so light you can have two over a bed of greens, or make a crabby patty served in a potato roll with some tartar. Enjoy!
