For the Three of You Who Don’t Follow My Twitter Feed, This is What I’m Obsessing About Today

Yes, it’s true: Churro Waffles are a thing that exist in our world and soon in my mouth because when I discovered they existed I begged Krissy to make them for dinner for me tonight and she totally said yes because she’s the best wife in the world and ZOMG YOU GUYS CHURRO WAFFLES.

And yes. I registered It goes to a recipe for churro waffles. You are welcome.

For more churro waffle news and updates, you should follow my Twitter feed today.

  1. Next up on John’s Twitter feed: “Losing weight is a marathon, not a sprint.” :)

    @Todd Chapman I’m going to try really really hard to forget I ever saw that.

  2. The owner of will soon be dumbfounded by the sudden influx of hits to her CHURRO WAFFLES* recipe.

    * Now I can’t write CHURRO WAFFLES in lower case anymore, and I don’t even want any. Thanks, a lot, Scalzi.

  3. OMG that looks completely amazing. I am preemptively jealous of your dinner. You must let us know how the great churro waffle experiment of aught-thirteen pans out!

  4. Make that four of us. Twitter, for me, is a massive waste of time. Nothing personal, O God of the Internets, but it just ain’t my cup of tea.

  5. As the only person in my household (or possibly on this planet) who does not like either churro or waffles, knowing perfectly well that there are several other people who will spot this within hours, I appreciate the added warning time.

  6. Well, you won’t need syrup. And your dentist is on speed dial. Right?

    Might be fun with bananas and blueberries.

  7. I for one applaud this foursquare and righteous retaliation against the very heart of the Belgian Waffle Hegemony.

  8. In ten years John’s Wikipedia entry will describe him as “Churro Waffle tycoon and former science fiction author John Scalzi.”

  9. My wife made these for dinner earlier this week after finding the recipe on Pinterest. My children devoured them, I ate as many as she could make. It was glorious for all involved.

  10. It’s just…so…*sniff* beautiful…

    As the only person in my household (or possibly on this planet) who does not like either churro or waffles,

    Get him! Butter the heretic!

    @ onyxpnina

    Well, you won’t need syrup.

    I love waffles and churros, but I loathe syrup. Fruit and cream are much better breakfast sauces.

    I must now one-up the internet by preparing churro sweet crepes.

  11. Sorry, John, I must be one of those 3 people who don’t follow your Twitter feed. I don’t have an account, don’t want one, and it’s bad enough that I waste too much time on Facebook. But the waffles look absolutely delicious. Pure U.S. Grade A Fancy Maple Syrup, 100% REAL unsalted butter, mmmmmmmmm heaven!

  12. Those look soooo good, but I don’t have a waffle iron! I wonder if you could use the recipe to make churro pancakes.

  13. I stand in solidarity with John Barnes in our dislike of churros and waffles. John, at least there are two of us.

  14. That, kind sir, is no dinner. That is an incomplete dessert. If you just add a few scoops of vanila bean ice cream, some chocolate syrup and whipped cream, then I think you’ve got something.

  15. “The pictures on the recipe site are the clearest definition of food porn I’ve seen in a long time.”
    It’s a good thing waffles don’t have rights.

  16. Now that she is going to be bombarded by this site’s literate readers, how long before she is pressured to change “your” to “you’re” in the first sentence?

  17. I don’t twit, but thanks for the warning. I spend too much time on social media as it is. Unfortunately, can’t eat the waffles either. See Bess’ post above.

  18. In Spain, the churros are smaller than the ones you see in the US, about the size of large french fries. They are commonly eaten late at night, dunked in a chocolate drink that is much thicker than the cocoa you are probably used to. Any Madrid guidebook will tell you about San Ginés, a chocolate cafe that is open until 7 am, for people coming out of the bars.

  19. Sorry, I’m a churro waffle naysayer. God created churros and God created waffles. If he had meant for churro waffles to exist, he would have put the recipe in the bible, right? He didn’t, so clearly this whole experiment is blasphemy. Tasty, tasty blasphemy. (Also, these kind of look like regular waffles topped with cinnamon and sugar…)

  20. Incidentally, in case it’s interesting to anyone but me, Redshirts the Audiobook (not to be confused with Redshirts the Musical) is currently on sale at (*spit*) for $6.95.

  21. My recommendation? Mayhaps Krissy could set these waffles in the window sill, and maybe turn away for 5 to 10 minutes to give the waffles some, uh… privacy? Then, if she should accidentally turn around and see a guy wearing footie-camo-pajamas and spy-kids night-vision goggles running away and the Waffles are gone, well… They’ve gone to a batter place… Better place. They’ve gone to a better place.

  22. ZOH. MY. GOD, I guess I will have no other choice but to eat that with an extra serving of bacon so the protein in the bacon can balance the carbs in the waffles and keep my glucose levels from going over the top….

  23. On a tangential note, I have just discovered the existence of doughnut burgers. And they frighten me.

  24. Twitter feed ….

    Down here we call those things ‘bird feeders.’ You writers will go through all sorts of conniptions to invent a new phraseology.

    BTW, real churro’s? Made with lard. Not that sissy vegetable oil. So churro waffles made with veg oil is only a gringo cop out. So man up, get your poncho on and dig into some real heart attack food. Also goes well with chicarones. Just sayin’.

    Pass me the Tecate.

  25. For those who don’t want to dirty themselves with Twitter, there is Whatwitters over in the right hand column. Click on that, read, and leave if it becomes too much for you.

  26. So…. It’s basically waffles with cinnamon and sugar on them….

    Amazing why?
    I avoid churros specifically because of the cinnamon and sugar crap that gets everywhere.

  27. Man, if I were going to do CHURRO WAFFLES I’d slightly undercook them in the iron, then bung them in the FryDaddy for a minute or two, then proceed as instructed. (And then lie around in a stupor listening to my arteries turning slowly to cast-iron.)

    A tip for your next waffle indulgence – cornmeal waffles (I use Jiffy corn muffin mix) with blackberry preserves and sour cream. Bacon is a must. But you knew that.

  28. I call shenanigans! A churro should be deep-fried. Until you’ve dropped that bad boy in boiling lard, it’s just a sugar-coated waffle.


  29. My friends and I were ZOMG about these today as well, but none of them have managed to create one yet. We bow to Krissy’s superior wifely skills.

  30. My company’s filtering software blocked the site as “potentially damaging content.” Plainly, it’s thinking about my arteries.

  31. ::looks at the Churro Waffle, thinks of all the sugar and carbs….::
    ::runs off screaming into the night::

  32. That website also has Elvis waffles: Peanut butter, banana and Dulce de Leche. ON A MOTHERFUCKING WAFFLE. Curse you, Scalzi, I’m going to be making waffles every day for a month, now.

  33. AKA cinnamon toast waffle. As I remember from earlier posts, Mrs. Scalzi does have some Hispanic background, so I can see why the Scalzi family uses the “churro”. Either way it beats any flavor of Eggo.
