College Cooking: Easy, Affordable, and Quick Waffle Sandwich

Food Fridays is back! I realized that I had these photos on my phone, and I thought I shouldn’t let them go to waste, especially because this is one of my absolute favorite lunches. I made this when I was living in the UK, so the brands will be UK brands, but you can find all of this stuff in the States.

This is a waffle sandwich with a cheesy filling on the inside. It is so easy to make! And it is delicious!

Here are the ingredients you will need:
-Toasting Waffles (I’m using McVities which aren’t frozen, but frozen will be fine, just warm them first. Don’t toast them all the way, just pop them in for a minute)
-White Cheddar Cheese (this is just the generic Sainsbury’s brand)
-Cream Cheese (or Philadelphia Cheese… whatever you call it is fine with me :P)
-Garlic Powder
-Black Pepper
-(optional) Sweet Chili Sauce for dipping

In a small bowl, you are going to add 1-2 tablespoons of cream cheese (depending on your taste) and 1-3 teaspoons of the white cheddar cheese (this is, again, to your tastes). I like more cream cheese than cheddar cheese, but you could mess with the ratio until you get it to your liking. You also add the garlic powder (I like a lot but add as much as you want) and some black pepper.

Mix it in really well! You want the cheddar cheese to be broken up and well combined.

Next, put half the filling on one waffle. Put the second half on the other. Make sure that you don’t dollop it on so that it is in a mound. You want it to fill the indents of the waffle and that’s it. Otherwise, you could end up getting the filling on your toaster, and then it would burn, and then your flatmates/roommates/parents would get mad. So be careful. πŸ˜›

So to warm up the sandwich and melt the cheese, turn the toaster on its side. CAREFULLY slide the waffles into the slots, ensuring not to get the cheese on the grates. Once they are in, you want to push down the lever and let them heat until they are to the desired toasting level. When they are done, turn the toaster off, and carefully remove the waffles. Again, try not to get the cheese filling on the metal in the slots.

Put your sandwich together, add some chili sauce for dipping, and enjoy! This is such a yummy lunch! If you try it, take a picture and send it to me on Twitter @sarasbeautyblog. Or let me know in the comments below.

    I made this and it was really good. I found some ‘European style’ waffles in my local grocery store and used those. They were about a third smaller than conventional American frozen waffles, which I liked for portion control. I am wondering if the waffles you used had a slightly sweet taste. Mine did. I liked it because I like sweet and savory foods mixed. It was unexpected but in a good way.

      I’m so glad you tried it and liked it. The waffles I used were also significantly smaller and less sweet. I think American frozen waffles are much sweeter than the European ones. I’m so, so glad you liked it! πŸ˜€
