YSK: Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuit mix makes fantastic waffles. ( lemmy.world )

I promise I'm not shilling for any of these companies.

I use the gluten free mix because of Celiac. We doubled the water and cheese and used it as batter in our stuffed waffle maker, filled with soft set scrambled eggs and more cheddar cheese. We used a heaping 1/2 cup of batter each for the top and bottom filling. The batter rises pretty quickly once it hits the cooking surface, so we'd press it back down as we were adding the fillings. It takes about 10 minutes to cook.

The mix comes with a herbed butter mix. After the waffle is cooked, we opened the maker, slathered each side of the waffle in the herbed butter, and closed it up again for about thirty seconds to let it cook in.

It's a perfect 5/7, highly recommended.

yeah, but when the sun's coronal mass ejection causes civilization to collapse, americans will be able to eat americans for a long time...

Is there a recipe so I don't have to buy the mix and can just use basic ingedients?

When I make them I do bisquick biscuits with a handful of shredded cheddar. A little melted butter and italian seasoning tops it off.

This is the second time I’ve seen cheddar bay waffles recommended. Fuck it! I have a box of this in the cupboard and a pizzelle maker. I’ll report back next weekend.

Willie ,

Wow... this isn't even the first time I've seen this recommended. That's really funny.

I've made these copycats with bisquick ( allrecipes) and its pretty good. I bet it'd work in my waffle maker.

this time it's to sell a waffle iron

If it's 5/7, is it really perfect...? 🤔

Also, I'm sure it's delicious, but I couldn't stop thinking about the calories. This must be half a day's calories in one delicious meal!

Yes, absolutely it's perfect.

No matter how long you've been on the Internet, there's always more to learn.

You're spot on. I only eat one meal a day and this was Sunday brunch. It's about 800 calories per waffle, nearly 1000 if you add sausage.

Telorand ,

Well, if you're going to do OMAD, seems like a tasty way to do it!

skydivekingair ,

Yeah but tell me more about this stuffed waffle maker. I have never heard of these and as I type I realize I sound like the shill part two.. still curious though, does it make like a waffle sandwich?

i am intrigued as well. definitely gonna look this up. i'm already coming up with ideas, like using pizza dough for 'batter' and toppings, cheese and sauce for 'filling'.......

SoleInvictus OP ,
@SoleInvictus@lemmy.world avatar

We've tried dough but it can be a little tricky. You need enough dough that it'll press together when you close the unit, but not so much that it squeezes the fillings out. It's a pretty narrow volume window. We've made pizza waffles using standard waffle batter with added fresh basil and Parmesan and mozzarella cheese plus pizza toppings in the middle and that worked great.

kaitco ,

Dang man! What other good ideas have you got??

It basically makes a thick waffle, thick enough where it has room to encapsulate fillings too. The maker is like your standard waffle maker but there's a removable spacer with a handle between the sides. For these waffles, you put in about half a cup of batter, add your fillings, then add another half cup on top of it. Then you close the maker and flip it over.

After it cooks, you use the removable spacer to remove the waffle and release it onto a plate. I attached a picture I snagged off the Internet so you can see what I'm talking about.

We've had ours for a couple of years. I got it as a drunken impulse buy, so drunk me surprised sober me when it showed up. It has been pretty awesome. One of my favorites is plain waffle batter filled with fruit pie filling, topped with maple syrup and whipped cream.

I’m just having trouble picturing how the spacer works without ripping the waffle apart when removed. Is it like a rod? Cause I’m picturing a ping pong paddle type spacer but that wouldn’t pull out, or are the waffle top and bottom not cooked together?

Lenny , (edited )

Based on the picture it looks like the spacer is just a ring around the middle, and the top and bottom seal the whole thing up when you close it. As long as you’ve sprayed non-stick spay on all the parts you should be able to pop the top and then lift the ring out and extract the entire giant waffle in one go. Then, I’m guessing, the ring can expand near the handles to release the waffle, and then you lift it away.

I’m pretty sure that middle bit is like a springform pan. The handle is not solid - you squeeze it to make it sit in the waffle maker but when you remove it, it opens a bit to release. I have no room for this in my kitchen but am intensely intrigued. I might buy a new house so I can get a bigger kitchen and have a place for this.

SoleInvictus OP , (edited )

It's like overzeetop said, it's a ring with a split on one end and a springed handle on the other. It slides into grooves on the top and bottom sides of the griddle.

When the waffle is done, you gently squeeze it to get it out of the groove, in the progress gripping onto the waffle, then the ring portion will separate slightly when you let go. It's non-stick so the waffle typically just falls out.

I took a picture of mine. Don't judge, we haven't run the dishwasher yet.

It does make a waffle sandwich. They aren't bad.

But, it takes about 10 minutes to cook, then 5 minutes to get hot enough to make another. So if you're just making it for yourself, it's fine. But if you're wanting to make them for like more than 2 people, it's a problem.

We were so preoccupied with whether or not we could that we didn't stop to think if we should.
