Last week I shared a cherry chocolate waffle dessert that was absolutely to-die-for and if you actually read through my run on sentences and such you wouldn’t have seen the mention of a KitchenAid Waffle Baker giveaway and a healthier way to eat Belgian waffles. Well, that day has arrived.
First, I want talk about the waffles. Technically it’s more of a breakfast sandwich but you still get that tender waffle just without the heavy syrup. Made with white whole wheat flour, these waffles give you the added benefit of using whole wheat without that assertive flavor you often find with a regular whole wheat. But I can’t take all the credit for this one because it was actually a fellow blogger that introduced me to the idea of waffles being more than just a base for gobs of butter and syrup with her chicken ‘n waffles sandwich.
So I took an ordinary Belgian Waffle and made a masterpiece out of it by sandwiching two waffle wedges around a loaded egg white omelet.
To make this delicious little breakfast sandwich you’ll need the help of the KitchenAid Pro Line Waffle Baker. And let me tell you, this is one kitchen appliance that you deserve to have. You may not need it, but if you love waffles, you deserve to have it because it makes the best homemade waffles I’ve ever had in my life.
The double-sided unit is designed to allow you to bake not one, but two 7-1/2″ diameter by 1-1/4″ thick grand Belgian waffles in less than five minutes.
On the top of the unit you’ll find a dial allows you to easily see when the baker is cool, pre-heating or ready to use. I find it particularly helpful when I’m done using the waffle baker to know when it’s cool enough to clean and put away.
The handle is quite large making it easy to grip and rotate quickly. It also remains cool to the touch during the baking process.
On the base of the waffle baker is a simple control panel that has a large timer display that glows blue while baking and turns red with an audible beep when the waffles are done.
While baking I noticed condensation forming on the outside of the unit which according to the manual is completely normal.
Once the timer is up, you open the unit to reveal a perfectly cooked waffle. After a dozen or so uses thus far, I’m impressed by how evenly the waffles brown every single time.
My only caution if you’re considering purchasing the KitchenAid Pro Line Waffle Baker is that it’s a heavy appliance (at 25lbs) and fairly large appliance that requires storage space when not being used. Since I find myself using it often, I gave it a home on my counter top next to Pink Lady.
Savory or Sweet, it’s up to you but I can’t decide, I love them both. The Whole Wheat Waffle Omelet can be made simply by using this white whole wheat waffle recipe and your favorite veggies in an egg white omelet. Alternatively, you can make the cherry chocolate waffle dessert recipe.
Oh! I mentioned a giveaway didn’t I? Well, here’s your chance to win the KitchenAid Pro Line Waffle Baker. Just wait for the entry form below to load and enter!
