Happy Shrove Tuesday!! Or Happy Pancake Day!!! This is the day before Ash Wednesday and the day for eating up the forbidden foods before the lenten fasting begins. Pancakes are traditionally eaten as they are made out of the main foods available, sugar, fat, flour and eggs. Traditionally these were restricted foods during the fasting associated with Lent.
No today’s post isn’t about pancakes but the waffle. Not a sweet sugary waffle but a waffle-wich. In December I did a post on Waffle-chiladas. In that post was the recipe for the Jalapeno Cornbread Waffles. The waffles are made with the forbidden foods, the sugar, fat, flour and eggs. With that in mind I thought it would be the perfect day to share the Waffle-wich. I typically have these delicious savory waffles in the freezer. They make a nice base for meat gravies, creamed mushrooms, chicken ala king and of course the Waffle-chilada. They are also wonderful as a base for the Waffle-wich.
According to Wikipedia a sandwich is a food item consisting of 2 or more slices of bread with 1 or more fillings between them. The Waffle-Wich certainly qualifies.
