What’s not to love about a waffle? It’s sweet, fluffy and is perfectly designed to hold as much syrup, whipped cream and assorted toppings as your heart desires.
Waffles are great for every meal, whether it’s smothered in syrup for breakfast, in a sandwich for lunch, or paired with fried chicken for dinner.
