Thank goodness for Pinterest! I reached into the very back of my cabinet the other day and caught a glimpse of my waffle iron. I think I've only used it once in the 4 years I've had it. I'm not too big on making fresh waffles so I thought I'd see if there were other foods to make on a waffle iron. I have a whole section on Pinterist now dedicated to foods on the waffle iron. The best thing about not making waffles on the waffle iron is the clean-up. No more gooey batter spilling out and no mess to clean.
Spray the waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray and turn up to med-high heat. Butter or spray the outside of the bread that will be directly on the heat. I used egg white, swiss and pickles in my panini, but you could put just about anything on it. When the bread is slightly brown and crisp, remove and serve.
