Ideas for Dorm Cooking–from Good Housekeeping
I ran across this in a back issue of GH. The article was aimed at people who are embarrassed to have a gadget that only gets used a few Sundays a year, but if you are cooking in your dorm or need to bake something without an oven, this might be a poor skill for you. In paraphrase: Check instructions for waffle iron and grease if required. Then you can make: *Panini; put in iron, close until bread is browned and cheese has melted. *Tuna melts; ditto. *Brownies; put 1/2 cup batter in each section of waffle iron, close, and cook about 4 min., or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. *Corn bread; ditto. *Burgers (beef, turkey, etc.--and I suspect also fish cakes although the article didn't say); put 1/4 lb. meat in each section, close, cook until no longer pink in the middle, about 5-7 min. Personally, I would watch the waffle iron very closely the first time I did this in case the meat turned out to be a bit too juicy. Hope this helps somebody!
