Grain-Free Waffle (Sandwich Bread) Recipe

Chef Dawn Ludwig
We’re omitting the vanilla in this recipe to prepare savory sandwiches. Feel free to include the vanilla if you’d like a sweet and savory combination, perhaps in a breakfast sandwich. Makes about 8 (6-inch) waffles, enough for 8 sandwiches.
