Waffles side dish and serving ideas.



Waffles may be one of the most versatile foods out there. Their sweet side is of course widely known, commonly found topped with sliced strawberries and whipped cream, topped with soft melting butter and sticky maple syrup, or just simply sprinkled with powdered sugar. It is their savory (wild) side that makes waffles so wonderfully adaptable, for example, who could turn down a cornbread waffle topped with a spicy chili and one bite of the salty-sweet Southern dish of fried chicken and waffles would convince even the most reluctant of believers. Whether you like them salty or sweet one thing is for sure the waffle, with its nooks to hold in all that flavored goodness, is ready to be transformed into a delicious meal and dessert.

International Waffle Day is celebrated on March 25th. In the USA there is also a National Waffle Day on August 24th.
