Crescent Waffles

If you’re alive and active on the internet in the 21st century, you may be familiar with the phenomenon that is putting anything you can think of into a waffle iron and hoping for the best. I’ve seen such experiments as waffle omelets, cinnamon rolls, brownies, cake batter and tater tots. We ‘millenials’ are so creative, am I right?

Saturday I was strolling the aisles of the grocery store, as a normal food blogger does on a perfectly sunny weekend afternoon, and I stopped in front of a section I normally walk past without so much as a glance: the dough section. I doubt that’s what it’s called, but that’s what I call it. You know, the section full of cookie dough, cinnamon roll dough, just general pre-made, packaged dough.

I looked at the cylindrical crescent roll dough package and thought… WAFFLES. Crescent waffles, that is. Of course, because that is a normal persons immediate thought, right?

This isn’t something that I would normally go for, don’t get me wrong. I’ve actually never used crescent roll dough for what it’s meant for… crescent rolls. But for the sake of food experimentation and quick, creative eats, one must sacrifice one’s routine.

But seriously… why not?

They were so easy and fun to make, and were definitely a crowd-pleaser. If my dad approves, I chalk it up as a W. I made two batches. The first was drizzled with Nutella, sprinkled with cinnamon and tossed with banana slices. The second was a little more simple: honey and cashews. If you’re going with the latter, I would advise you chop the cashews for an easier bite.
