Who doesn’t love a nice warm waffle topped with fresh fruit, Chantilly cream, maple syrup, or melted chocolate? Since it first appeared in Belgium, this light, crispy, vanilla-flavoured pastry has become a worldwide favourite, and it’s constantly being reinvented. In fact, there’s a ton of original waffle recipes, from savoury pizza waffles to frozen dessert maple waffles.

Another version that is insanely popular these days is inspired from American delis: the chicken and waffles recipe—essentially a waffle served with fried chicken. Why not try this delicious, spectacular combo for your next brunch get-together? It’s sure to impress and satisfy even the biggest appetites!
