Lunchbox perfection = these Grilled Cheese Wafflewiches! 💚😍
A while back, my daughter discovered not one, but 2 dusty waffle makers in the back of a rarely used cabinet in my kitchen. Embarrassing! 🤪 They were both wedding presents nearly 14 years ago. Has this happened to you? •
Since then, we’ve been waffling it up, and these Grilled Cheese Wafflewiches are what my kids love most. The recipe, created in partnership with @thefeedfeed
is a perfect combo of crispy, flavorful waffles and gooey, melty cheese. 🧡
I’ve posted the recipe below so save this post as a quick ref! 💛 You can also watch some BTS on Stories and tap @lalalunchbox

Savory Grilled Cheese Wafflewich
20 (3/4 ounce) slices of @landolakesktchn
Deli American cheese
1 cup flour
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons chopped chives
2 large eggs
1 cup buttermilk
4 tablespoons of unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 Preheat the waffle iron and the oven to 200 degrees F. In a medium sized bowl, mix all of the dry ingredients.
2 In a separate bowl, add the chives, buttermilk and eggs and whisk together until just combined. Whisk in the melted (and cooled) butter and grated parmesan.
3 Add the wet ingredients to the dry ones, making sure that everything is fully mixed. 4 When the waffle iron is hot, pour about 1/4 cup of batter to create each waffle (may change depending on your waffle iron). Close the waffle iron and cook for approximately 3 minutes, or until the steam stops spraying out of the sides. 5 Use a spatula to remove the waffle and repeat until the batter is finished. 6 Place the waffles on a rack and pop in the oven to stay warm and crispy.
7 Remove from oven. Heat the oven to broil.
8 Lay out the waffles on a cookie sheet. Place 2-3 slices of cheese on each waffle. Place under the broiler for approximately 1-2 minutes or until cheese has melted.
9 Press together and cut each wafflewich into 4 squares, or serve whole. .
