4. Spread a thin layer of butter on the top two waffles and melt the remaining butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

5. Add the sandwiches and cook until golden and crisp, about 3-5 minutes per side. Feel free to add more butter to the pan if needed. You may need to adjust the heat if the waffles are browning too quickly.

6. Let the sandwiches cool for about 1 minute before serving.
