Here's another one.  Mac n cheese waffles.  Add a cup of shredded cheddar to some cold left over mac n cheese, mix it up and add other things too like crispy bacon or sausage or chopped jalapeno or onion or anything that sounds good, I put green tabasco in mine along with the bacon.  Take a big spoonful, form into a ball and put it in the waffle iron, smash it down and cook until crispy.  Kids love this, husbands do too. You will be a hit with the family...  I would not let my kids have any of this until they ate a salad.  I know, mean mom, but forgiven after the waffles are eaten.
