There used to be this odd little anachronistic burger joint in Montana, straight out of the 1950s or so, that made a mean “flying saucer” burger. The “flying saucer” burger was, essentially, just a typical burger, cheese, ketchup, mustard, onion, pressed between two round pieces of bread that were sealed at the edges and toasted. It was quite delicious and I was very sad to see the place close down in recent years. Funny how a simple little change to the bread can really make something taste incredible.


The interwebs are telling me this is a “Cuban Style Sandwich,” but it also looks a lot like the burgers from Montana. Image from:


That brings me to waffling.

No, not the kind where you can’t make up your mind. This kind of waffling is bold, decisive. Delicious.

Whatever kind of sandwich you can make, you can waffle.

Just prepare your sandwich, heat up your waffle maker, spray it with non-stick cooking spray, place your sandwich in it and SQUISH. Squish hard! And then wait a few minutes (slightly longer than your average, everyday waffle would take), and BOOM.

You’ve just waffled your sandwich and it is delicious. Don’t you feel smart and attractive?

Try it with:

– Peanut butter and jelly
– Roast beef and cheddar
– Turkey and provolone
– All of the cheeses ever

The sky is your waffley limit. Enjoy your new found fabulous, toasty, squishy, delicious method for heating up sammiches. Yum!

P.S. You can also use waffles to make your sandwiches. Or pizza. Or a lot of things really.
