40 Jaffle fillings | Ideas for nutritious, easy midweek dinners
We’ve gone jaffle CRAZY at the Families Magazine office – what’s your number one choice for jaffle fillings?
Jaffle fillings – the question that stopped a nation
Well, close enough.
For when the weather gets that little bit cooler. For when the tracky-dacks start coming out of the cupboard. For when (let’s be honest) you really can’t be bothered trying that hard. There’s just one phrase on everyone’s lips here at the office…
They’re a common ground. They’re a touchstone. They’re so delicious that you’re thinking about them right now, aren’t you? Crispy bread. Warm jaffle fillings. Steam coming out of the jaffle iron. Maybe a cup of hot tea with it… I feel like I’m writing a romance novel. Ode to jaffles.
We asked our amazing Facebook community what they thought the BEST jaffle fillings were and here’s what they said…
