Can I be honest for a hot second? I’ve already started stressing about our morning routine once school starts. Besides trying to get four humans dressed and out the door on time for school, I have to feed them, too. That means I need breakfast ideas that my kids will eat, and something easy enough that it won’t make me want to pull my hair out before 8 am.
When I thought about what my kids would actually eat on school days (something “fun”), and what I want them to actually eat (something good for them), I came up with the perfect idea: Mini Waffle Breakfast Sliders.
Make ’em Mini
I mean, what’s not to love about Mini Waffle Breakfast Sliders?
They’re cute and tiny, and you can eat them on-the-go, so I don’t have to wait for them to finish their plate at the table; they can eat them on their way to school.
The Kellogg’s Eggo Nutri-Grain Low Fat Whole Wheat Waffles and the Kellogg’s Eggo Nutri-Grain Blueberry Waffles are wholesome and filling, which is a win/win for everyone. The kids will think that having waffles for breakfast on a school day is a treat, but really, it’s just a sneaky mom tactic.
Then, sandwiched between two Eggo waffles is deliciousness to get them through their morning at school: ham and cheese, and for my own kid who actually likes eggs, ham, cheese, and an egg.
That, my mom friends, is called winning!
Basically, these mini waffle breakfast sliders are like a breakfast secret weapon.
More Eggo Waffle Awesomeness
Besides being indulgent and tasty, Eggo is teaming up with Scholastic to help fuel kids’ bodies and their minds.
When you buy one Eggo product you can get a free Scholastic book for your little one, a friend’s kid, or even your school. After you buy your waffles, upload your receipt to Kellogg’s Family Rewards to get your book.
Not to mention, when you order online for Walmart’s grocery pickup, you can skip the line and have them waiting for you—super handy if you have a gaggle of kids in tow.
Customize Your Mini Waffle Breakfast Sliders
Here’s my favorite part about making these Mini Waffle Breakfast Sliders: you can make them however you (or your kids) want. It’s perfect for picky little ones, because you control how you make them.
One of my daughters loves the Eggo blueberry waffles, but hates eggs. The other one prefers eggs and the whole wheat Eggo waffles. And the baby? He’ll pretty much eat anything I put in front of him.
I’ve gotta tell you: the Eggo blueberry waffle adds such a nice sweet and savory flavor, that I think I prefer that combo for my Mini Waffle Breakfast Slider the most!
- 2 Kellogg's Eggo Waffles (pick your favorite variety)
- butter for waffles
- 1 egg (optional)
- 2 slices American cheese
- 2 slices ham or Canadian bacon
- Heat a 10" or 12" skillet on medium-high heat. Butter the tops of two pieces of waffles. Put one Eggo waffle butter side down on the skillet. Place one slice of cheese on the waffle so it can start melting.
- Heat ham on the skillet for about a minute, then put on top of the cheese.
- (If your want an egg with your sandwich: fry an egg in the skillet and break the yolk. Cut up ham and sprinkle it over the raw egg; let the egg cook on one side, and then flip when the bottom is cooked.)
- Top ham with additional slice of cheese; add the second waffle, butter side up. When the bottom of the sandwich is golden brown, flip the whole thing so the top can now get golden brown.
- Let cool on a cooling rack so it doesn't get soggy, then cut into four pieces, and try not to eat all of them before your kids do.
How do you like your Eggo waffles? Do you make anything fun for breakfast during the school year?
