October is a great month for game days and nights. With baseball playoffs including the World Series, the heart of the football season, and the start of the basketball and hockey seasons, it is possibly the best month for sports lovers.
But it is does make you wonder: how can you keep up with the food demand needed to enjoy so many games? Also, with so many games to follow, you want to be in front of the action more than in the kitchen.
This challenge is similar to what food trucks in Philadelphia and others face: in catering for our customers, we have to make sure that we balance taste, speed, and quality, so our customers are fully satisfied.
Waffle makers can be quick solutions for much more than waffles. In looking to feed hungry fans, you should consider making more serious use of yours. Here are some easy ideas to consider and shouldn’t take you away from the game for very long.
Waffle Iron Mozzarella Sticks
If you like mozzarella sticks, a waffle iron makes them super easy. Prepare them the same way, with the same exterior bread crumb coating, and press them in the waffle iron until golden brown. If you like, you can also do the same thing with thicker slices of cheese, which you can then slice into smaller pieces.
Waffle Iron Zucchini Fritters
This may be a little more work, but zucchini fritters are delicious. Shredding the zucchini is a time investment if you do it by hand, but you can always use a shredded. Make up the batter with some cheese and other spices for great taste.
With a couple of tortilla shells and pepper jack cheese, you pretty much have the makings for a simple quesadilla. Consider adding vegetables that cook quickly and easily, like spinach and peppers, as well as some spice like chili or jalapeno sauce.
Waffle Iron Crab Cake
Make them the same way you would regularly crab cakes, except place the batter into a waffle iron.
Waffle Iron Pizza
Yes, pizza, although it may look more like a pizza pocket. Just get pizza dough and make up a pizza the way you ordinarily would. Then cover the top with another layer of dough before moving it into the waffle iron. For pepperoni pizza, this method is delicious.
Waffle Maker Brownies
What’s game day (or night) without dessert? Just whip up a simple brownie mixture, but use the waffle maker to cook them. They are fantastic!
I hope these ideas keep your game days and nights delicious!
