There are simpler recipes such as Crispy Waffled Bacon and Eggs where the waffle iron just acts as a containment system for the grease, there are also more complicated and delicious recipes such as Waffled Chocolate-Stuffed French Toast. I tried this recipe...it's totally worth it. Plus there are suggestions for other delicious things to stuff your French toast with. For the main course, I had to try the Green Chili Waffled Quesadillas. I threw in some of my own stuff for the filling, but the effect of the waffle iron definitely made the quesadilla have a good texture and melted the cheese evenly. Some of the main courses caught me off guard; I don't think I'm ready to try Waffled Filet Mignon or waffled Spaghetti and Meatballs yet!
If you are looking for something different, like keeping down the kitchen mess and love your waffle iron...this is the book for you.

About those recipes, though... While I'll probably never scramble eggs in my waffle iron, I came away with a number of great recipes (you MUST try the brioche - it's SO easy and a delicious component of several items) and inspiration. There's even a section with tips and advice on how to get your own recipes going - what generally works, what doesn't. You can follow Shumski's recipes, or take them to a whole other level.
For example, Shumski's idea to make a grilled cheese sandwich in the waffle iron is sheer brilliance by itself, but particularly so if you like to layer it with bacon or tomato. For those of you who do, you know the anguish of trying to flip a loaded sandwich once it's been grilled to perfection on the first side, only to have it all come apart mid flip. In your waffle iron, of course, there's no flipping involved. Problem solved. Bonus: Your sandwiches cook in half the time since both sides cook at once. Double bonus: If you're using a Belgian waffle maker, your sandwich (if you center it, albeit against Shumski's advice - he suggests placing it as far away from the hinge as possible so as to get better leverage for closing it in, but my waffle iron, the Oster CKSTWFBF21, closes very nicely with the sandwich in the middle) will be cut into four sections, perfect for sharing right out of the waffle iron.
Sandwiches, of course, are only a small part of Will it Waffle? Shumski will have you preparing any number of dishes, from desserts to main courses (think ravioli, macaroni and cheese, stuffed chicken breasts, tamale pie - SO yummy!), all in half the time it takes to cook the same dishes in a pan or in the oven (hint: chocolate chip cookies). I've tried about ten recipes so far and, although there are probably many I'll never get to, I've already discovered several that have quickly become staples at my house. I hate to name drop, but the chocolate-stuffed French toast is insane.
My whole family is in on this, too, as Shumski's book is perfect for seasoned and aspiring waffle iron chefs alike. My kids, including my 14 year-old son, have been having a great time in the kitchen with Will it Waffle? and our new waffle iron. Triple bonus!
So, I found this book, that is perfect for a teen that wants to experiment with food, be creative and lastly, be able to eat such food. Lots of wacky ideas, that are producing eatable dishes...what else can you ask for? The fun aspect of this way of cooking makes it a great activity for young people starting to wander into culinary territory....Thanks
