Preheat Stuffler™ stuffed waffle maker with waffle tongs in unit for 10 minutes. Spread about 1/3 cup batter into waffle maker so bottom grids and waffle divider are thinly but completely covered. Place filling (1/2 cup) onto batter leaving a thin margin around edge. Spread additional batter over filling until it reaches the top of the square projections on the waffle tongs. Close waffle maker and flip. Cook for 7 to 8 minutes. Remove stuffed waffle to plate.
