National Waffle Day
August 24, 2020
National Waffle Day In honor of this anniversary, National Waffle Day is observed each year on August 24th. A waffle is a dish made from leavened batter or dough that is cooked between two plates that are patterned to give a characteristic size, shape, and surface impression. There are many variations based on the type of waffle iron and recipe used.
NATIONAL WAFFLE DAY ACTIVITIES
1. Eat Waffles at Every Meal
Waffles aren’t just breakfast items — you can enjoy them throughout the day. Try planning your entire day around the waffle: waffles with syrup for breakfast, chicken and waffles for lunch, a Belgian waffle for your afternoon snack, and a Philly Cheesesteak wafflewich for dinner. Want to make it easy? Park yourself in between a Waffle House and a Denny’s and make it happen! Denny’s has over 1,600 restaurants, and Waffle House tops 2,000, so that shouldn’t be too hard!
2. Buy That Waffle Iron
We know — you don’t need that waffle iron. But today is an excuse to finally give in and buy yourself one. You know you’ve been looking at it for months, anyway.
3. Host a Waffle Party
Now that you’re in possession of a shiny new waffle iron, it’s time to put it to good use. Get out the butter and syrup, invite your friends over, and fry up a heap of fresh waffles. Be sure to give your guests options — jam, chocolate syrup, powdered sugar, and peanut butter are musts.
