Wedge Salad Waffles Recipe

Wedge Salad Waffles

Prep Time 30 minutes Cook Time 30 minutes refrigeration time

I've never had a savory waffle before (which is maybe a little shameful because I live in the south - how have I not had chicken and waffles yet?) but when I was making a batch of waffles for the freezer, I remembered we'd had cobb salads the night before, so I tossed together some of the ingredients and dressing on top of the waffles and. It was amazing. 

The slight sweetness of the waffles contrasted with the savory toppings, and the waffle holes held all the bacon bits, crumbled blue cheese, and other bits in place. Perfect!
