How to Make Macaroni and Cheese Waffles

Confused? No, it’s not a breakfast food — and there’s no waffle batter, either. Macaroni and Cheese Waffles are in fact similar to deep-fried macaroni and cheese nuggets (only minus the deep-fried part and plus the cooked-in-a-waffle-maker part) with a layer of extra cheese sizzling in the center. Are you on board now? Find the crispy, crunchy, creamy recipe below.

After the mac and cheese “sandwich” cooked long enough to brown, it lifted straight out of the waffle iron, clean and easy, the cheese rivulets lifting straight up and hardening into lacy, crisp edges as they cooled slightly.

This really might be the best way to eat macaroni and cheese ever. The center stays gooey and cheesy, while the edges get crisp and browned.
