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!
Anyways, buy Daniel's book, there are other good recipes in it but I'm stuck in a rut and make mostly the overnight yeast risen waffles. I should mention I've tried over a dozen of his recipes so far and all of them have turned out good, so this book is no one hit wonder, there are plenty of good recipes for you to try. It's also written expertly IMO, expertly in that it is easy to read and comprehend. Seriously, you need to buy this recipe book if you love to make and eat waffles
If you're looking for a good waffle maker to buy, this https://www.amazon.com/Oster-CKSTWF2000-Belgian-Waffle-Stainless/dp/B00A1MEP6M/ref=sr_1_3?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1514525948&sr=1-3&keywords=waffle+maker is the waffle maker I purchased recently and I highly recommend it. It's economical and makes waffles easily, that wont stick to the griddles. I will spray a cooking oil on it periodically and never have experienced sticking waffles
In the past I have thought of buying an expensive heavy grid waffle maker yet the one I mention above, is all I need and therefore, I have no desire to upgrade, it's just not necessary
