Crab Cake Waffles Recipe – 2 Smart Points

Crab Cake Waffles

Lately, there’s been a serious waffled food trend happening on Instagram. Apparently, it’s pretty easy to cook a lot of different foods on a waffle iron! This is great because it allows your food to cook quicker and more evenly, and you use a lot less oil than you would if you pan fried the food. Case it point: crab cakes. Cooking my crab cakes in my waffle iron was not only fun and easy, but they were definitely lighter from not having to pan fry them. And they were delicious! All the flavors were working together in a synchronized harmony, and the perfectly crisped crab cake was a joy to eat. My kids even tried them, thanks to the waffle shape. Now that my crab cake waffles were such a success, I’m excited to try some other foods in the waffle iron. Stay tuned!
