Sunday Brunch: A Salute to Waffles with Pedro Hernandez

by Reuben Gutierrez

19 May 2013

Mickey Mouse Waffles

As our daily readers have noticed, this month of May we are dedicating a week to our beloved Gamer Tuesday writer Pedro Hernandez. When it comes to food, one of Pedro's favorites is the waffle! At Walt Disney World, the waffle is a much sought after breakfast item in the shape of our favorite mouse and has since become a favorite sandwich. Being a voracious eater of waffles myself, I've found I have probably eaten almost every different type of waffle on property and covered almost all of those here on Sunday Brunch. The key word being almost. Today we'll look at the third and final waffle sandwich at Liberty Square's Sleepy Hollow Refreshments in the Magic Kingdom.

Nutella and Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich Disney

A little more than a year ago, we took a look at the Nutella and Fresh Fruit Waffle sandwich...

Sweet and Spcy Chicken Sandwich Waffle Disney

...while a little less than a year ago we tried out the Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle Sandwich.

A half a year ago, I sampled the final waffle sandwich ' Ham, Swiss, Prosciutto ' on my birthday last fall. My cousin and her friend were down for the weekend for one of the Disney Marathons and spent the day with me and my friend Amanda at Magic Kingdom. They wanted to try something unique for lunch, so I took them to Sleepy Hollow's for some unique waffle sandwiches. I remember the majority of us getting the Ham, Swiss and Prosciutto and realizing we probably could've split a couple between us. We each had before us a sandwich piled high with layers of thinly sliced meat, Swiss cheese, plenty of greens, and large round slices of tomato. The waffle was delicious, as usual, and they spread some kind of mayonnaise on the waffle. I hate mayonnaise, especially when they put it on a burger and you already asked to not have it. Though for some reason, I didn't mind it on this waffle sandwich. The mayo was accented with some kind of seasoning or herbs and complemented the salty meat and sweet cheese very nicely. I would have liked less mayo as it made my waffle a bit soggy. Still, at Sleepy Hollow the waffle sandwiches are a real winner. Now that I've tried each waffle sandwich, I have to say the order in which I reviewed these waffles is probably the order in which I prefer them.

Waffles are fantastic and I don't think Pedro nor I could fully explain our fascination with them, they are just simply delicious and fun to eat. There are still a few I have yet to write about on Sunday Brunch. The first that comes to mind is the waffle with Mascarpone cheese at Kouzzina by Cat Cora at the Board Walk Resort. In the meantime, you and Pedro can check out the following for a Disney waffle extravanaganza!
