Food for Thought

Chicken and Waffle at Walt Disney WorldChicken and waffles - two popular American dishes merged into one delicious meal. If you’ve ever had the sweet and salty dish you’ve probably only had it a breakfast joint, but Walt Disney World ® knows what floats people’s taste buds, that’s why you can get chicken and waffles, or a unique combination of the two at Magic Kingdom ® at a little eatery called Sleepy Hollow whenever you like.

With such treats as funnel cakes, ice cream sandwiches and root beer floats, Sleepy Hollow, located in Liberty Square is by far one of the sweetest refreshment counters in Magic Kingdom ®. But it’s their newest menu option, the waffle sandwiches that really have guest’s mouth’s watering. You heard right, giant waffle sandwiches stuffed with incredible goodness, one of which is spicy chicken.

You’ve never seen or tasted chicken and waffles like this. A large batter-fried piece of chicken, doused in a sweet and spicy Asian sauce, topped with creamy coleslaw and fresh arugula sits in between a giant, fluffy, slightly sweet waffle. The glorious concoction doesn’t come with any sides but it is a generous amount of food and perfect for a heavy snack or meal. But there is a downside, the Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle Sandwich is served from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

For a lighter meat and waffle dish try the Ham, Prosciutto and Swiss Waffle Sandwich. Again, made with a huge fluffy waffle, this sandwich is filled to the brim with fresh ham, prosciutto, swiss cheese, tomato slices, arugula and a herbed mayo that isn’t mentioned on the menu. Just like the Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle Sandwich, this one is also only available from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Taste buds craving something a little sweeter? Try Sleep Hollow’s Nutella and Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich. Slathered in a generous amount of Nutella the second it leaves the hot waffle iron and then topped with a large serving of fruit like banana slices, strawberry slices and blueberries, this sandwich is decadent! It’s the perfect treat for breakfast or a delightful mid-day snack. Unlike the Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle Sandwich, the Nutella and Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich is available all day.

Please keep in mind you may have to wait a few minutes before being able to sink your teeth into one of these waffle sandwiches. The waffles themselves take some time to make but they’re definitely worth the wait!
