Waffles are a timeless classic in the grand scheme of breakfast delicacies. No matter what you endeavor to pair with them, whether it be fried chicken or melty cheese, it always seems to work just right.

It’s okay if you don’t believe me now. Just wait until you see these twenty-two glorious waffle recipes.

Not to mention, they can appropriately be used as pillows to up the ante (although it is not recommended).
