Since getting my new waffle iron/griddle/Panini press, I have been dying to find fun ways to use it. The very first thing I made (RIGHT when I got it home from the store!) were these Easy~Peasy Cinnamon Roll Waffles, and they were sooooo yummy! I've made them several more times since. I usually only make them so can have a 'taste', and give the rest to my hubby, since I'm trying to stay away from sugar and carbs.
Anyway………..I've been jonesin' for some type a steak sandwich for a while, and thought last Saturday night might be the perfect time to try something.
New York Steak (thin cut), Arugula, Pepper Jack Cheese and Chipotle Mayo. I also used Sourdough Bread, but forgot to include that in the photo – doi!
I just seasoned the steak with salt and pepper before placing on the grill
While the steaks grilled, I smeared the bread with Chipotle Mayo and topped that with some Arugula. Have you ever tried the flavored Mayo? The Chipotle has a FABULOUS kick to it. Love it!
Then I placed the grilled steak on the Arugula and added sliced Jalapeno Jack cheese to the other slice of bread. Can you see my ½ sandwich there in the middle? LOL! I really wanted a WHOLE one. Oh well.
Then I put the sandwich back on the Panini grill for a little bit – look at the gooey cheese!
Do you Pin? If not, you should. Pinterest is a FABULOUS place! Simply FABULOUS! I've seen this (many variations!) recipe on Pinterest many times, from so many different people. So, this is nothing new, not rocket science, but it is truly something delicious and amazing
CINNAMON ROLL WAFFLES!
The cast of characters:
Pillsbury Grands Cinnamon Rolls, Syrup and a Waffle Iron, Panini Press or similar
Place two Cinnamon Rolls on the griddle, and close the Griddle
Yeah, it's that easy!
Don't they look scrumptious? You can drizzle on some cream cheese frosting, or just serve them with syrup. Either way, they taste soooo good!
How FABULOUS does this salad look? Something very similar to this, was my lunch today! Oh my, DELISH! I made it for dinner last night, and brought the leftovers to work with me today! I didn't have a recipe, so I just winged it!
One bag of mixed greens (mine had carrots, snap peas and radishe)
Fresh Strawberries, cut into halves (or quarters, whatever you prefer)
Can of pineapple chunks (or fresh pineapple)
Can of Mandarin Oranges
Toasted almond slivers
Mix the above ingredients together and top with creamy poppyseed dressing!
SOOOOOOO good and fresh!
Let me know if you try it, and if you do…what you think!
My daughter has 2 days (and a few hours!) of school left, before she graduates. Oh my! I cannot believe my baby is done with high school! I am freaking out, just a bit!
