Sous Chef Sunday: Waffle Iron Pepperoni Pizza Pockets

Do you have a waffle iron? Doesn’t it make delicious, fluffy, just perfect waffles?

Did you know you can use your waffle iron to make some other, more surprising, dishes?

For years I assumed (see that’s what I get bc we all know what they say when you assume something) that mine was only for making waffles. DOH!

In my defense, the box wasn’t really helpful either since it only had pictures of gourmet waffles and no helpful hints or recipe tips for anything else. And I was a newly out-in-the-world newly wed anyway, what did I know?

Well fast forward to now, and our waffle iron gets it’s own prime-time counter-top space. We use it to make cookies, we use it to make cinnamon roll waffles, and we’ve even used it to make cornbread waffles to serve with our chili (recipe coming soon).

But this, THIS is the sons’ favorite waffle iron recipe- waffle iron pepperoni pizza pockets. Let that sink in for a sec.

Golden brown biscuit outside, melted mozzarella inside. It’s waffle pizza perfection.

They make a great lunch, an easy afternoon snack, and they make an even better quick, no fuss dinner on fend -for-yourself nights, aka Fridays.

Sorry, but come the end of the week this Momma needs a break and I’m not ashamed to admit it, or to take it. #sorrynotsorry The sons WILL survive, even though they don’t believe me.

So, we’ve got an easy, 5 minute meal, but that’s not all.

Like so many of our other favorite recipes, these are easily customizable.

Don’t like pepperoni or have other favorite toppings too? Throw some crumbled bacon or cooked sausage in the middle.

Is a supreme your thing? Throw some veggies in there and enjoy.

You can even spice em up a little by adding a dash of Italian seasoning. You get the idea.

Pizza Pocket Waffles

HELLO, crispy savory waffles fortified with pepperoni and mozzarella. I see that warm marinara topping. Look at you, you saucy little thang!
