Waffles are an underrated sandwich vehicle, but I'm a big fan of salty-sweet waffle sandwiches. So when I heard about a cafe in San Francisco earning props for its waffle creations, I put it on the sand wist list. When I finally made it to Dash Cafe, the waffle sandwiches underwhelmed me, but maybe I caught them on a bad day. At least the Belgian-style waffles showed promise; click through to see.
Apparently it's sandwich truck week at Between the Bread, with news that a new waffle sandwich truck called Brass Knuckle will be hitting the streets of San Francisco in January. I am a big fan of the waffle sandwich, but I didn't realize it was really a thing that other people ate. (Well, besides the RZA.)
The menu sounds interesting, but most of the items — spicy fried chicken salad and slaw on a lemon waffle; beets, eggplant, and blue cheese on a parsley garlic waffle — sound a little complicated for me. What I love most about waffle sandwiches is the sweet/salty combo, so I'll have to taste these to really decide. Do you like waffle sandwiches?
I think waffle sandwiches are divine, and at least one member of the Wu-Tang clan agrees.
In a recent interview with Time Out New York, rapper the RZA describes his signature burger, which sounds remarkably similar to my recent waffle creation:
A RZA burger is a veggie patty with a fried egg, cheese, lettuce, pickles and all that, smashed between two delicious waffles. Spread mustard and mayo on it with a little butter and put that shit together. Trust me, son, that shit needs to be in stores.
The blogger behind Eudaimonia recently re-created the recipe, pictured above, with a garden burger, a fried egg, cheese, caramelized onions, and a leftover chile relleño from Chevy’s. My mouth is watering, making me think I've been remiss is not putting veggie burgers on waffles. The leftover chile relleño is similarly brilliant. Would you eat it?
I've said before that Andrew makes a mean egg sandwich. After his last egg and kale sandwich home run, he continued our kale obsession for this sweet and savory waffle 'wich.
Composed of maple-smoked bacon, kale cooked with sauteed onions, perfectly waffle-shaped eggs, and slightly sweet whole wheat waffles, these sammies made for a scrumptious breakfast for dinner dish.
If you've never made a waffle sandwich, you are seriously missing out. Take a walk down waffle lane with even more photos.
