A couple of months ago I went to see a cooking demo, at the Sydney Opera House, with Jamie Oliver as part of his Food Revolution Tour. One of the recipes he made was pancakes cooked two ways: the traditional way and then the same batter cooked in a waffle iron. This got me thinking… I do love waffles but I am not going to go and buy another piece of electric kitchen kit. My kitchen is full to the brim with kitchen gadgets and I thought to myself why not make waffles in my sandwich press. 

Turns out… you can make waffles in your sandwich press and they are quick, easy and awesome!
