Leslie Knope once said, “We need to remember what’s important in life: friends, waffles, work. Or waffles friends, work,” and, since it is National Waffle Day, that’s a sentiment we can get behind! Usually waffles bring to mind images of maple syrup and pats of butter, but this year we’re venturing into the savory side of waffle territory. With recipes from cornbread waffles with chili to ginger-sesame waffles with Indonesian fried chicken, your culinary adventure in celebration of National Waffle Day awaits!

From the website: “Okay, so #pizzaforpresident, right? Pizza is king and we all know it. But wait, waffles are also king… how do we merge these superpowers into one major alliance for the senses? That’s correct: with pepperoni pizza waffles. Waffles stuffed full of nasty, cheesy pizza-ness. You knew you wanted it before you even knew it existed, didn’t you?”
