Waffles aren’t just for breakfast anymore. Waffle sandwiches are
popping up everywhere, from high end restaurants to trendy street
vendors. They’re even creating a buzz at Disneyland!
Studio 5 Contributor Emily Bradley shares her favorite ways to stack
and stuff tasty flavors to create homemade waffle sandwiches.
Turkey Avocado Waffle Sandwich
Boar’s Head Sausalito Turkey, thinly sliced
Boar’s Head Swiss Cheese
Chive and Onion Cream Cheese
Two toasted waffles right out of the waffle iron
1. Mash avocado in a bowl then spread on one waffle – fill every groove!
2. Spread the other waffle with the cream cheese (again, fill up every groove!)
3. Place the Swiss cheese over the avocado and broil both waffles until the
cheese is melted and both sides look toasted.
4. Arrange the turkey on top of the melted Swiss cheese, top with a sliced
tomato (grind a little pepper on top)
5. Squish waffles together and devour your waffle sandwich!
*This is my go-to sandwich combination that always gets raving reviews. It’s delicious
on French bread or crusty rolls, however the waffles are extra tasty, since they hold the
yummy pockets of avocado and cream cheese so well. Try it… you’ll love it! (Boar’s
Head deli meats and cheeses are available at Harmon’s and Smiths.)
Banana Nutella Cream Waffle Sandwich
Russian Cream (recipe follows)
Two toasted waffles
1. Slice bananas and sauté on each side in a little bit of butter.
2. Spread a generous amount of nutella on one waffle, filling in every groove.
Cover with warm bananas.
3. Spoon a generous amount of Russian Cream on the other waffle.
4. Sandwich together and savor each bite over and over until you’re licking your
fingers and making another one.
*Eggo has a new “thick & fluffy” toaster waffle in the shape of an octagon that works
perfectly with this recipe if you don’t have time to make the real deal. (I found mine at
Harmon’s.) This makes a decadent treat for your favorite Valentine! (You might find a
year round excuse to make this yummy waffle sandwich!)
1 pint of whipping cream
1 C granulated sugar
1 packet knox gelatine
1 1/2 tsp vanilla or almond flavoring, or a combination of both
30 oz of sour cream
1. Heat cream and sugar until sugar is dissolved (do not boil)
2. Sprinkle gelatin in 6 ounces of cool water and heat until dissolved.
3. Add gelatin mixture to cream and whisk well.
4. When cooled slightly, add flavoring and sour cream. Whisk until well blended.
5. Chill until set.
*This is DELICIOUS and elegant served in tall glasses with fresh berries. I thought I would
try it on a waffle combination and it’s INCREDIBLE! I have yet to find any sweet treat that
Russian Cream doesn’t make a little bit better… or a lot!
2 eggs, divided
2 cups buttermilk
¼ cup oil

I found everything you will need for perfect Valentine packaging supplies at
Orson Gygi! They carry decorative bags that easily wrap up toasty waffle sandwiches
and darling little trays perfect for delivering a deluxe lunch. Tie each packaged sandwich
with twine and serve with a glass of milk (complete with a paper straw) – your Valentine
will feel especially loved. (And your chances of getting Valentine’s Day flowers drastically
