From grilled cheeses to waffled quesadillas, your trusty waffle maker can be used to make a plethora of fun dishes apart from waffles. And here’s another recipe idea to throw into the mix: Egg foo young.

A twist on the classic Chinese-style omelette, this makes for a fun kitchen project to embark on with the kids. It’s also great as a snack or quick mid-week meal with rice or porridge if you’re short on time. Plus, the recipe can be tweaked in any way you like, whether to add more of the ingredients you prefer or to throw in your own favourite fillings instead.
