Lunch and Dinner Waffle Recipes

Waffles aren’t just for breakfast any more. They can be enjoyed throughout the entire day for lunch or dinner. The following recipes are offered as options to replace the usual sliced bread normally used to make sandwiches.

Besides using these waffles for sandwiches you can also eat them with salad toppings to suit individual tastes. Waffle sandwiches are made the same way as you would make a traditional sandwich with sliced bread.

What to put into a waffle sandwich?

Favorite waffle sandwich fillings are: - peanut butter and bananas,
- peanut buter and deli meats, such as turkey, ham, chicken, beef and cold cuts,
- deli salads, like tuna, chicken, turkey or shrimp salad,
- also add onions, lettuce, tomatoes, olives, peppers or pickles,
- you can also add mayo,
- mustard,
- ketchup,
- or whatever other condiment choices you and your family like.

Oh, this is not a list of everything that you should put into one waffle sandwich. Just pick things that you like and use them. Leave the rest outside of your waffle sandwich:).

Since the waffles have a different taste and texture than regular sliced bread, you may want to experiment a bit to determine which condiments and other add-ons work best.

Now to the recipes. First you will find a few waffle recipes suited for making sandwiches and then there will be a few recipes for salads that go great with waffles. Enjoy!

Just like sliced sandwich bread, waffle sandwiches can be made with a variety of different types of waffles. This basic traditional waffle recipe is great for any meal. It is easy to dress up without overpowering the taste of sandwich fillings or toppings.

Plain waffle recipe ingredients
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 3/4 cups milk
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil

5. Pour batter onto waffle iron and cook until golden brown.


This might seem like it's a recipe for beer lovers but actually beer is here for the fluffiness not for the taste. You can taste it a little bit though. So if you think you wouldn't like the beer taste in your waffles try something else (you can try and replace beer with sparkling mineral water).

Beer waffle recipe ingredients
- 2 cups self-rising flour
- 1 can or bottle of beer [12 ounces]
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1/4 cup milk

Instructions 1. Preheat waffle iron and coat with oil or non-stick cooking spray if necessary.

2. Combine flour, beer, butter, milk, egg yolks, honey, and vanilla in a large bowl and stir until smooth.

3. Set the batter aside.

4. Beat egg whites in a separate bowl until stiff peaks form.

5. Fold egg whites into batter.

6. Pour onto the waffle iron and cook until crisp.


This versatile waffle is great any time of day. Top it with butter and syrup and it’s ideal for breakfast. However, when you leave off the customary breakfast toppings and serve sour cream waffles for lunch or dinner, you will be amazed at how easily they make the transition from morning to mid-day or evening.

Sour cream waffle recipe ingredients
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
- 1/4 teaspoon white vinegar
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs, beaten

1. In a bowl, whisk all wet ingredients – water, sour cream, yogurt, and vinegar.

2. Sift dry ingredients – flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt – in a large bowl.

3. Beat eggs and stir into sour cream mixture.

4. Blend into flour mixture and stir by until smooth.

5. Cook on a lightly greased waffle iron until golden brown.

This is the end of lunch and dinner waffle recipes. Now for some salads that go great with them.

Although we don't like to admit it, there are times when you need to eat something other than waffles. Here you can find a link to Amazon which is a great place to buy your first or your new waffle maker. Then you have other sites that also offer great recipes and we like to visit them sometimes when we are in a mood for something other that waffles. Which is not very often :). Enjoy!
