Waffles are indeed a tasty treat that make your taste buds sing with every bite. They are made even more perfect when dressed with toppings. The toppings usually give the waffle its distinct flavor and goodness.

There are over a hundred different kinds of waffle toppings. Most of these toppings are made with a combination of one or more ingredients such as cream and fruit, mayo and ham or chocolate syrup and peanut butter. Whether you want your breakfast waffle sweet or savory, there is surely a waffle topping that will suit your food preferences.

Cheese waffles are perfect for brunch or at an afternoon party. It is the ideal company for refreshing drinks like orange juice or smoothies. Kids will also enjoy a serving of this yummy treat!
