  4. Kristin says:

    I only saw part of your post before as I was pretty busy, but I remembered the main idea (making foods in a waffle iron) and made french toast in my waffle iron the next morning for breakfast. I think that the waffle iron version of french toast was the best I have EVER had!!! Your ideas are great too-can’t wait to try more!!!

  5. Erica says:

    I HATE eggs, but have been trying to hide them in stuff. For the hash browns, do you think it would still work if I put the whole egg in it rather than on top?

  6. Cassie says:
