Level: Easy to Medium. Caution: Wafflemakers get HOT. Parent supervision for kids under 14.
If you enjoyed the raspberry nutella wafflewich (a cross between a sandwich & a waffle) we made a few months ago, then you’ll probably like this lunch version wafflewich. My friends Flora, Kiera and I made these delicious wafflewiches with cheese and fresh spinach! You can use almost any kind of cheese (mozarella, cheddar, goat, swiss), regular of gluten-free bread, and your favorite vegetable as long as it is thinly sliced. If you have any comments I’d love to hear them and please share any interesting wafflewich ideas you come up with in our comments section at the bottom of this post. Enjoy!
Yummy mozzarella, swiss and gruyere cheese plus spinach leaves
Sprinkle a thin layer of cheese & veggies on bread
This is a quick & easy snack or meal that kids can make. Adult supervision required. Use caution because parts of the waffle iron may be hot and can cause burns.

2 slices of soft bread (regular or gluten-free)

Place a slice of cheese onto the above slice of bread
Add some thinly sliced veggies or spinach leaves (one layer)
Place other piece of bread over the ingredients
When wafflemaker indicates it is ready, close lid* (*If bread is too thick for wafflemaker to close, just close it as far as you can and hold it there)
After two or three minutes check your wafflewich
Done when bread is slightly golden brown
Best when you use soft bread that is sliced thinly. Other veggies that would work well: thinly sliced bell peppers, basil, arugula, tomato.
