Literally the best Back to School dinner I can imagine. It's easy, it's kid-friendly, it's delicious. Calzone Waffles are also great because they are road-friendly. When you pick your kids up after school and race to gymnastics or soccer or piano lessons, then to the next pick up or drop off, then to the game, it's nice to have a dinner that you can eat in the car.
Not that I encourage that. I'd rather have you sit at a picnic table all together at the soccer field and spend 10 minutes chatting about the day while you eat the waffles - but some nights you can't be picky.
These are also easy to customize what's in them. Cheese only for the really picky ones, pepperoni, sausage, or kalamata olives for the rest of us. Have fresh basil on hand? Throw it in. How about a little gooey cheese? Pop it in there.
Also - the leftovers make the best lunch the next day. It's like epically good cold pizza.
