Expert Tips

Reduce calories by using Bisquick Heart Smart® mix and low-fat milk.

Bake the waffles ahead and reheat in a 350°F oven for 10 minutes or until crisp, then proceed with step 3.

Your yield may vary, depending on the size of your waffle maker. If it’s square or rectangular in shape rather than round, you can stack 2 small waffle squares together to make these sandwiches.
