Sandwich Waffles

Looking for something fun and so simple? These Sandwich Waffles by Maria Emmerich @ MariaMindBodyHealth are so easy to make and taste so good! Basically, the waffle is your bread, meat, and cheese all rolled into one.

I will admit that my husband was a little skeptical when I told him what was for dinner last night, but these turned out great and he really enjoyed them.

I'm thinking of keeping some of these on hand for snacking or traveling or even breakfast on the go!

Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

Image
This casserole was sooo good! I totally forgot to take a picture of it after it came out of the oven all ooey gooey :-(   But here is a pic of the leftovers. Believe it or not, I actually made a double batch in a 9x13 dish for only 4 of us. I was thinking that there would be plenty leftover for some great lunches. LOL.... everyone had huge seconds and this is all that is left! I think I've mentioned before how much I love casseroles. My mother always made a wonderful traditional Chicken Cordon Bleu. But, because I'm a 'lazy' cook, I hate pounding out the chicken and trying to roll it with the ham & cheese. I love bite size because I don't want to use a knife if I don't have to. So, I created this amazing casserole. Try it out and let me know what you think!
