I love having sandwiches for lunch…lunch meat and lettuce, egg salad, tuna salad, etc. Since starting THM last year, I have been using the Bread in a Mug recipe and cooking it in a small Pyrex bowl in the microwave. I pop it out and let it cool, then slice it in two to make two “slices” of bread.
While this worked “ok”, I had a hard time actually eating the sandwich with my hands. I usually ended up eating it with a fork because the bread was pretty fragile. Yes, it still tasted great, but I was missing eating a sandwich the normal way!
Enter…waffle bread! What gave me the idea is that I use an adjusted version of the Bread in a Mug recipe to make waffles (adding in some vanilla, sweetener, and cinnamon), and then baking it in the waffle iron. They are SO good too! But then I wondered if I could just make the regular Bread in a Mug recipe, bake it in the waffle iron and use that to make sandwiches!
Guess what…it worked beautifully! I think having the bread cooked on all sides like it does in the waffle iron helps to make the bread more sturdy.
Here is how I did it…
My waffle iron makes 4 small waffles, so I mixed up the Bread in a Mug recipe (in the THM book!) and spread the batter over 2 squares to make two waffles (each being about the size of a slice of bread). It worked great! I let them cool a bit before I assembled my sandwich.
I added some mayo and mustard, FF turkey lunch meat and some lettuce. It was REALLY good! (See picture above!) And..I was able to eat it with my hands!
I bet you could make up a bunch of these waffle breads and keep them in the frig for a quick sandwich. I also think they would be good with some maple extract added and maybe some sweetener, then fill with eggs and bacon for a yummy breakfast sandwich.
THM Note: The Waffle Bread should be eaten in an “S” setting.
P.S. Stay tuned…next week I will be sharing a yummy Brownie recipe I came up with using my famous Fuel Pull Chocolate Cake recipe and a yummy frosting that even keeps it fuel pull!
