I don’t know how big of an appetite your children have, but mine seem to currently have an endless one. Seriously, I have to cut them off sometimes! Then I remember these spurts of endless hunger come and go in the same way that children grow – in crazy increments that range from a few centimeters the first half of the year, to a few inches in the last half of the year. They come home “starving,” as they say. So, I fix them something that isn’t too difficult and will keep them full until dinnertime. I also like to make their afterschool snacks kid-friendly so that they can help, too.
A few months ago we ran out of bread, and of course, they wanted peanut butter & jelly sandwiches that day after school. I almost started making something different, but then I remembered we have Eggo Buttermilk Waffles in the freezer. I started to take them out and remembered that my daughter had them that same morning before school, and under my breath I said to myself, “oh wait, we had these this morning,” thinking she wouldn’t want them again for her afterschool snack. Before I could put them back in the freezer she said, “no wait, I want waffles again!”
Seeing how Eggo Buttermilk Waffles are made with no artificial flavors or colors, there’s no reason why not to! So, we made Eggo Buttermilk Waffle Peanut Butter Sandwiches for me and the little Miss, and Eggo Cinnamon Toast Bites for my little guy. The Peanut Butter and Jelly Waffle Sandwich is filled with bananas and served with a side of fresh strawberries and blueberries. My son prefers the Eggo Cinnamon Toast Waffles, so we broke them off into four pieces, spread some peanut butter and jelly on them and topped them with strawberries and bananas.
They. Were. A. Hit!
The first time we had these sandwiches we felt like we had been missing out on some good lunches! I never thought to use them for anything other than breakfast. I’ve seen waffles and chicken before, and I’ve seen them used as sandwich bread, but I’ve never actually tried anything other than having them for breakfast.
The only creativity involving Eggo Buttermilk Waffles or Eggo Cinnamon Toast Waffles before these PB&J sandwiches in my house was using the comal (a round griddle that I use to warm up my tortillas on) to toast them when I didn’t have a toaster at one point. It works. Sometimes better than the toaster!
We’re so excited to use Eggo Buttermilk Waffles for other mealtimes and recipes that I predict you will be seeing more posts with them in the future on Spanglish Spoon. 😉
On your next trip to Target, be sure to pick up a box of Eggo Waffles to start getting creative with your meals at home.
Look for the packaging with the green banner at Target!
