Waffleize or Wafflize

To “waffleize” or “wafflize” something is to put it on a waffle. “16 welcome ways to waffle-ize all size appetites” was the title of a pamphlet that appears to have been printed in the 1920s. “The joy comes in being able to waffleize all sorts of things—corn bread, French toast, fried mush, muffin batter, shortcake, and even omelets” was cited in print in 1931.

A blog called Waffleizer was started in January 2010. “A cheese you can wafflize” was cited on the Food Republic blog on May 2, 2013.

Waffleize It!
Written by The Proofmeister on January 11th, 2010
Here is a great new blog called the Waffleizer I think that the correct spelling should actually be wafflizer… but maybe that domain was taking?

The mission statement is: Waffleizer’s goal is to answer the question “Will it waffle?” Preach on brothers!

Will it Waffleize?
Found a blog on “waffelizing” food. It started in January. Sounds cool since I love cooking on my George Foreman grill so much, only this is in waffle shapes! I wonder what a pork steak looks like on a waffle iron.

Leave it to DudeFoods, home of the butter-stuffed mashed potato bite, to create a waffle made entirely of cheese. Well it’s not exactly made out of cheese, it was cheese to begin with. A very special cheese. A cheese you can wafflize.
