Tools you’ll need
Step 1: Plug in Dash Mini Waffle Maker and wait for indicator light to go off to show that it’s ready to use.
Step 2: Spray both top and bottom plates with nonstick spray. You will need to do this with every single waffle.
Step 3: Place one dinner roll in the waffle maker. Close lid and cook for 2 minutes, 40 seconds.
Step 4: Using a silicone or wooden spatula, transfer the waffle to a cooling rack and let cool for 2-3 minutes to allow waffle to get crispy on the outside.
Handy tip: Use Potholders
If you’re having a hard time removing the waffle from the waffle maker because it’s too soft, use potholders to pick up the waffle iron and “pour” the waffle on the cooling rack. It will get nice and crispy as it cools.
