That's right: the succulent meat and buttery pastry of Greggs' bestselling bake, combined with the sweet, crisp, doughy goodness of a waffle.
It's a hybrid that's sure to split opinion, but we admire the creativity, for sure.
The creation comes from the mind of hungry Scot Darren Dowling, and you can view his full how-to video here:
After exploring all corners of the deep-fried food market, Darren (Dazza to his friends, FYI) turned his inquisitive brain to one particular question: can you 'waffle' a steak bake?
As you might have guessed, the recipe involved taking a beloved British staple, a Greggs' Steak Bake, and mushing it into smaller pieces.
"We're gonna crush up a Greggs and put it inside a waffle maker," says an enthusiastic Darren in the intro.
He then proceeds to place the Steak Bake on a chopping board and slice into it with a knife.
"You've got to cut it, right? Mix it all up a wee bit," explains the food-loving Scot.
Darren then proceeded to blitz the meat and crumbs into a waffle batter using a hand-held food processor and, erm, plastic cup.
We have to say, the final mixture doesn't look appealing - even Dazza admits the substance resembles sick.
But after placing the mixture into his waffle iron and cooking, the end result comes up crisp and golden.
An impressed Darren promptly tucks into the sweet and savoury mix - saying that he gets an even "fifty-fifty" blend of Steak Bake and waffle flavours.
If you want to try out Dazza's unique snack, all you need is a waffle maker, waffle mix and a Greggs Steak Bake.
If you'd prefer to go meatless, you could always try the recipe with one of Greggs' famed vegan-friendly Steak Bakes, which are filled with savoury flavour mycoprotein pieces and diced onions in a rich gravy.
