Breakfast On the Go Waffle Sandwiches

This recipe has been compensated. All opinions are mine alone.

I like making our morning routine super easy, especially for my kids, but I've noticed they've been skipping breakfast lately.

I think they've grown tired of oatmeal and cold cereal, so this week I'm planning a frozen breakfast menu. The menu is set up so that they can eat at home or have breakfast on the go. 



You'll need:

  • (1) Package of Homestyle Aunt Jemima frozen waffles (14 ct.)
  • (7) Large or extra large eggs
  • (7) Slices of turkey bacon
  • (7) Slices of cheese 
  • (2) Tablespoons of butter
  • Salt & pepper

The first thing I do is cook the eggs and turkey bacon. I cook the bacon on a baking sheet in the oven at 400 degrees for about ten minutes per side.

I also whisk my eggs and pour them into a baking dish and bake at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes, or until the eggs firm up. Don't forget to add salt and pepper.

Then I remove the bacon and eggs from the oven and allow them to cool. Once the eggs and bacon are cool, I start cutting the eggs into even squares. Sometimes, I take this recipe a step further, by using a large cookie or biscuit cutter to create circles from the cooked eggs to fit the size of the waffles. If you don't have a cuter that size, you can also use a glass or cup to create circles.

Once my eggs are cut to size, I cut each slice cheese and cooked bacon in half so that it will fit in the waffle.

Now, I warm my griddle on medium heat before moving on to the next step. 

Here comes the fun part. Starting with my waffle on the bottom, I then add a half a slice of cheese. Now I add a half slice of bacon and then my egg. Next, I add another half slice of bacon, a half slice of cheese and another waffle on top.

By now, my griddle is hot, so I butter the entire surface with one tablespoon of butter and begin placing my waffle sandwiches on the surface. 
I cook each side until golden brown and the cheese is melted. The melted cheese will help hold everything together. This is especially important for breakfast on the go sandwiches.

Once my sandwich is golden brown, the kids can enjoy them. 
Now, let's say I'm making these ahead of time for the week, at this point, I'll let them cool, then wrap each one in freezer paper.

When the kids need one, they can just grab, heat and go. Let me just end by saying, these were delicious!

  6. What a great idea. I tend to grab a juice or smoothie on my way out to the gym first thing in the morning but by 10 I'm starving! I need something quick and easy since I'm immersed in work by then so this is a perfect solution. Thanks!
