Waffle Iron Fun!

I saw some cute ideas on Pinterest for using waffle irons.  I just had to try this one today for a special something sweet for my valentine.

I bought a can of refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing included.  You're supposed to bake them in the oven for about 20 minutes

 I set the waffle iron on medium (#4 on my Waring waffle iron).  The squished the lid down to cook.

Voila!  Two minutes!  The brown marks are the cinnamon filling.  This is a non stick iron, but the places where the cinnamon filling contacted the grill stuck just a little bit- but not a big deal.

Squeeze on the frosting- YUM!

This was fun, but I have to admit that I prefer them fluffy and puffy baked in the oven.  Not bad, though.   They would be GREAT filled with ice cream to make an ice cream sandwich!

I also saw on Pinterest that you can bake cookies or  brownie batter on a waffle iron.  The next time I bake cookies or brownies (in the oven), I'll hold out a little to try on the waffle iron.

The idea I can't wait to try is putting frozen hash brown potato shreds on the waffle iron.  It's supposed to crisp them up quickly and without all the oil you have to use when you fry them.

Hmmmmm..... what else can I make on a waffle iron.......
