Food Hacks Spring Recap

Waffled Napoleons
Waffled Napoleons - With the new "waffling" trend that has emerged thanks to the popularity of food hacks, people have been experimenting with waffling all kinds of different foods. Though I've had great luck experimenting with waffling foods like hash browns and sandwiches, my hands-down favourite thing to waffle is puff pastry. In just 8-minutes in the iron the raw puff pastry turns golden, buttery, and wonderfully crisp! I love serving my waffled puff pastry as the classic French dessert the Napoleon, with a layer of creamy vanilla pudding, fresh raspberries, and a dusting of icing sugar. 
Bacon Mac & Cheese Sliders
Bacon Mac & Cheese Sliders - A mini muffin tin is my super-tool of choice for forming perfect and uniform sliders in only a few minutes! No slider buns? No problem! I like to use the rim of a glass as a cookie cutter to cut circles of bread the exact same size as my sliders to act as buns. Top these babies off with some leftover mac & cheese, and you've got yourself a new weeknight favourite! 
Spaghetti Squash-Crusted Quiche
Spaghetti Squash-Crusted Quiche - Making pie crust from scratch can be a pain. Skip the mixing, rolling, and mending my pressing roasted spaghetti squash into the pie plate! Not only is this crust insanely simple to prepare, it's also delicious and adds another layer of flavour and texture to the overall dish. 
Instant Ramen Stir-Fry
Instant Ramen Stir-Fry - What's your go-to snack or small meal when you're in a hurry? I like to turn to my Instant Ramen Stir-Fry thanks to it's ease of preparation and simple ingredients that are always in my fridge! Instant ramen noodles are a wonderful option because they're inexpensive, take two minutes to soften, are satisfying, and lastly allow you to make a single portion without waste.
Turkish Meatballs
Turkish Meatballs - Why take the time to form and roll meatballs by hand, when it's so much easier to use a quick-release ice cream scoop! A quick-release ice cream scoop allows you to cut down on mess, keeping your hands a whole lot cleaner, as well as keeping the meatballs nice and tender because you haven't overworked the meat. These Turkish-inspired meatballs get their flavour from cumin, mint, and a hit of Kraft Creamy Cucumber Dressing both inside the meat and drizzled on top. 
Wonton Mozzarella Sticks
Wonton Mozzarella Sticks - Bring your favourite pub food favourite home with ease thanks to my handy food hack! Wonton wrappers and string cheese are the key ingredients to making simple and deliciously-cheesy mozzarella sticks at home. Love these as a last-minute special snack or as an appetizer for entertaining.
