I am so excited to partner with Bob Evans to create this reimagined family favorite recipe since everyone in my family loves Bob Evans Macaroni and Cheese!

How To Make Mac and Cheese Waffles

Making this deliciously different dinner could not be more simple!

  1. Preheat the waffle iron.
  2. Combine Bob Evans mac and cheese, flour and shredded cheese. Mix until well combined.
  3. Grease waffle iron with oil and scoop mixture onto center of the iron. The amount depends on the size of your waffle iron.
  4. Cook until crispy and golden brown.

My Favorite Mac and Cheese Waffle Toppings

There are so many ways to dress up these waffles! Here are a few suggestions from my kitchen to yours!

  • Sour cream
  • Ketchup
  • Ranch Dressing
  • Salsa
  • Guacamole

While Mac and Cheese Waffles can be enjoyed by themselves, they are perfect paired with Tomato Soup, Corn Chowder, Turkey Soup, Chili, or to make a leftover Meatloaf waffle sandwich.

How To Store Leftovers

Mac and Cheese Waffles are perfect for last minute dinners are stored and frozen very easily! Make a batch and once they are fully cooled, place a few in a zippered bag labeled with the date or in an airtight container in the fridge for a grab-and-go after school snack (or a quick bite on the way to practice)!

To thaw mac and cheese waffles, reheat them in the microwave wrapped in a paper towel to make them crispy again. Better yet, simply pop them in the toaster or toaster oven and they will look and taste good as new again!

    These are outstanding!
    Wow! Had some at Tupelo honey and they were not good at all. I may send them this recipe!!
    So easy! So good! Be sure to spray your waffle iron well! We had these with hot dogs. Now macaroni and cheese is finger food!

    So happy to have found this recipe since I am wearing out my mini waffle maker. I either use the premade mac as in the recipe or leftovers. When dining out, I substitute a side to bring home all kinds of mac and cheese (bacon, lobster etc) and whip up with these easy kitchen staples. It’s a perfect side or snack any time of the day

  3. I would prefer to use my own version of mac and cheese,,, I’m sure Bob Evans mac and cheese is good but budget wise I make my own… so how much leftover mac and cheese can I use… I do not know how much is in Bob Evans packaging
