Waffled Leftover Mac & Cheese
The Skillet section of Lifehacker.com has a regular ‘waffling’ feature, where different foods are put in the waffle iron. The waffled mac & cheese got my attention. My first attempt turned out like this. Some of the edges get crispy. It can almost be a hand-held snack, but I recommend eating it over a plate, as some of the noodles will probably come loose.

The recipe: I tried waffling two different mac and cheese recipes; both from allrecipes.com. One was this stovetop recipe, and the other was this baked version. The Lifehacker article recommends baked mac & cheese for waffling. However, for flavor I preferred the stovetop version.
Then for something different, I tried this recipe that adds pesto and dried tomatoes. It was also tasty and waffled well. https://www.foodiecrush.com/stovetop-pesto-macaroni-and-cheese-with-corn-and-sun-dried-tomatoes/ The pictures below are of this recipe.
The waffling process was simple: Put a scoop of cold mac & cheese on the preheated waffle iron; smash the lid closed and let the sizzling begin. Three (3) minutes in the waffler produced the best result for me. On removal, the mac and cheese doesn’t stick to the waffle iron, but I did have to gently coax it out; same as with a regular waffle.
