New Twist on an old Fave


About a week ago I saw a recipie for a grilled cheese sandwich made in a waffle iron. I thought this would be so cute and fun to make for the kids so we tried it out yesterday. I, for the life of me, can not remember where I saw this idea. I have searched through my blogs I read, through my Kraft food magazines, and even google and can't come up with anything. So sorry, I can't give credit where credit is due!
*This happens to be my son's lunch plate. It is such an argument to get him to eat his veggies. We compromise with him eating 4 at each meal.
The recipie stated that you can use whole wheat bread and probably sneak it past the kids since they will be grilled. You also don't need to use any butter on the bread which is another health bonus.

I also made this once for the fam a few days earlier before making it for the daycare. When I made this for our dinner, we threw in some ham and had hot ham and cheese done this way.
Delish and Oh So Easy!

  1. It seems like I saw this recently too-couldn't tell you where, though. I thought it was a really neat idea, but wasn't sure if it would work with our Belgian waffle iron?

  4. My parents (who are colombian) would make our sandwiches like this when we were kids! I guess its something that many people have thought of! I used to think that it was a sandwich toaster.. it was never used to make waffles ever!

  5. Sounds easy enough! It would be fun to come up with a silly name for these sandwiches because of the waffle print on them.

  15. We used to play an eating veggies game at the table... I would ask my kids how old they are (they lOved to tell me everytime) and then I would tell them to eat the same number of veggies as they are old. Hope that makes sense... by the way they are both teens now and it doesn't have the same effect anymore, imagine that, LOL! Thanks for sharing the waffle sandwich.
