Waffle toppings you'll love. From savory to sweet and everything in between, these waffle toppings are perfect for breakfast, brunch, dinner, or even dessert!

Is there a limit to the number of waffle toppings you can put on a single waffle? We absolutely love waffles in our house and love trying different toppings, from savory to sweet and everything in between. So, here’s our list of savory and sweet waffle toppings.

What time of year do you enjoy waffles the most? When fall rolls around here in New England, we love eating warm waffles fresh off the waffle iron.

Then again, come spring when the maple syrup is running, we love making waffles and indulging then, too! I guess a big stack of waffles really is a year-round food after all.

Today we’re talking about waffle toppings though. From pouring to stacking, piling, and even sprinkling, there’s a topping for every waffle and every taste bud.
