Do you like croissants? Do you like waffles? Then you need these easy croissant waffles. This croissant sandwich takes leftover croissants 10 times better. Plus, they’re freezer-friendly, too!
I love brunch and today, I’ll show you how to get these buttery, flaky croissants to another level! It all started when I bought a box of croissants from Costco and had lots of leftovers croissants. Guilty! And since I try not to waste any food, I made those leftover croissants to waffle. Croissant waffles. Or croffles!
How to make croissant waffles?
There are two ways to make these:
- Semi-homemade: using puff pastry dough or premade croissant dough
- With leftovers croissants
It depends on how you want to make croffles; however, you will need
- Premade croissant dough or croissants
- Filling such as chocolate, cheese, and more
Tools you need to make croffles
Waffle maker. That’s it! When it comes to waffle makers, there are several things that you need to consider.
- Nonstick tray. Almost all new waffle makers are nonstick; however, always double check
- Cleaning. Be sure to check the manufacturer’s cleaning instructions before you commit to buy. I found mine is a little bit tough to clean and need chopstick to help cleaning the corners
- Shape and size. This will determine the thickness of each waffle and how long it takes to make one. I use a personal waffle maker and it takes sometime to make these croissant waffles
What can I add to croffles?
You can try either sweet or savory for the filling. You can spread Nutella, peanut butter, chocolate sprinkle, or even coated croffles in melted matcha chocolate. And if you like something simple, try dusting them with confectioners sugar.
If you prefer savory, add cheese or spam. They always make a good combo!
What goes well with croffles?
Are croffles freezer-friendly?
They are! I often make a big batch because they freeze well and make a good breakfast or snack on the go. All you need is to microwave it for 30 seconds (or until hot) when you’re about to enjoy it.
The next time you have leftover croissants, don’t toss them right away. You can either turn them into these croissant waffles or bread pudding. Either way, you’ll have a good breakfast the next day.
