7 savory waffles you need to try

Who says waffles are just for breakfast, anyway? These crispy, savory waffles add fun to your plate any meal of the day.

Think of potato pancakes minus the greasy pan-frying. Add grated cheese, minced herbs, or crumbled bacon to the batter, and top with eggs to make them a full meal deal.

And the secret ingredient is...garbanzo beans! Loaded with fresh herbs and earthy spices, these truly savory waffles are great topped with tzatziki, tomatoes, cucumbers, and parsley.
