National Waffle Iron Day

It’s National Waffle Iron Day! Today is an important celebration for all the breakfast lovers of the world. Homemade waffles are one of the cornerstones of a delicious morning meal, and the waffle iron makes it all possible.

Waffle irons originated in Belgium during the 14th century. These early contraptions consisted of two metal plates hinged together. The plates were then attached to a long pole, which allowed the cook to hold the iron over an open fire. In 1869, a man named Cornelius Swarthout patented the first American waffle iron. This device was designed for cooking waffles over the burner of a wood or gas stove. Fifty years later, General Electric began producing the first electric waffle irons for everyday use.

To celebrate National Waffle Iron Day, whip up some waffle batter and have breakfast-for-dinner tonight! Top your homemade waffles with syrup, whipped cream, fruit, chocolate, or even fried chicken. Bon appétit!
