Did you know that you can waffle just about anything? This Turkey Club Waffle Sandwich happens when you layer sandwich goodness inside a croissant and then put it into your waffle iron. This is such a fun way to change up lunch and dinner sandwiches.
Does anyone else have a picky eater that lives with them? We used to say what great eaters we have, and that we were blessed that all of our kids would eat just about anything.
Lately our youngest seems to be developing into a picky eater. He really did eat most things as a toddler and little boy. Now that he is heading toward those teen years, he doesn't want to eat most meats. In fact, that boy could live on mac and cheese and homemade brownies. Oh, and string cheese too. We don't buy it that often though because he devours them.
He used to eat hot dogs and chicken without any problems at all. Then one day he decided that he was done with it and wanted to eat just veggies. Well, now how can you argue with a kid that wants to eat veggies?
So, most days he gets more than enough of his veggies, although we stretch him and make him eat a few bites of whatever meat we are having for dinner. Sound familiar to you, mom? Yeah, I used to be the exact same way growing up. In fact, to this day I am not a huge meat eater. So, I don't force him to eat much meat, although he is tiny so we encourage him to try different meats because he needs the protein.
A few weeks ago we picked up some ham and turkey from Sam's Club along with some ready-made crescent rolls. Can you believe our shock and amazement when the picky eater made a turkey sandwich on a roll and declared it good?!?!?!
I don't know what changed his mind about turkey, but I'm not going to question it at all because this week he is eating a meat. You better believe I bought another container of turkey and box of crescent rolls the next week. Although I can just see him over-eating this sandwich, and deciding he doesn't like it next month. Guess we can fight that battle when it comes time, right?
So with all these crescent rolls sitting on my counter, I started wondering what else I could do with them. It just so happened that the griddle was sitting out, and I thought that a grilled crescent roll could be a good thing.
Then I saw the waffle plates and a lightbulb went off! A waffled sandwich sounded 100 times better than a plain grilled sandwich for lunch that day!
I piled cheese, ham, turkey, bacon, tomato, and avocado inside a crescent roll and plopped it into my hot griddle. A few minutes later I had an awesome sandwich staring back at me. How fun is this waffle sandwich?!?!?
I totally want to waffle everything right now. Who's with me??

I empathize with your son...I wish I could live on mac and cheese and homemade brownies! 🙂 These waffle sandwiches look like they could sway any picky eater! Yummy!
Yeah, I wish my body would be ok with comfort foods like that too...sadly I have passed that window of eating what I want when I want. Although I will always make room for sandwiches like this!

My son used to be such a great eater too and now he is getting pickier by the day. These waffle sandwiches look are so fun! Such a creative idea and I know my son would love them too 🙂
Yeah, our son has definitely been getting pickier the older he gets. Some days it is hard to get him to eat much beyond mac and cheese, but sometimes you just have to pick your battles, right?

Tessa is our non meat eater. I've given up trying at this point, haha. She adds protein in her diet through smoothies and dairy. And like your little guy, she eats plenty of veggies (and tons of fruit). However, one of her favorite "meat" meals is a turkey club. Go figure. She would love this!!
Aren't they funny with what meats they will allow in their diets? That is too funny that a club is ok with both our picky eaters.

I have been having way too much fun putting different things in my waffle machine. It's true you can waffle just about anything. LOL!
