It’s International Waffle Day

Waffles are the perfect morning (or anytime) meal. Crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside, you can top a waffle with almost anything!

On International Waffle Day, head directly to your favorite dining spot or whip up a batch at home. Heck- you can even toast them straight from the freezer! Pile on the berries, whipped cream, chocolate, and powdered sugar for a sweet treat. Or, enjoy a savory delight with a little fried chicken and gravy.

No matter how you garnish them, celebrate the day with a yummy stack of goodness!
