Yes, I did it – and it worked!  

Cornbread Dressing Waffles? Really?

It’s literally as easy as putting your leftover dressing in a waffle iron and letting it do its thing. They do take a little longer than traditional waffles to crisp up, so keep that in mind.

Make sure you grease it thoroughly, and watch it.

The gravy is savory and bacon-y, but it has just enough maple syrup to give it that sweet component to counter the salty.

And – the cayenne rounds it all out.

Bacon and a little heat make everything so good.

I think almost everything should have a little kick to it. But you knew that.
