Leggo my Eggo! Remember those commercials of two kids fighting over that last waffle just as it popped out of a toaster? I know how those kids felt because I grew up loving boxed frozen waffles, too. But I also adored the fresh taste of right-out-of-the-waffle-iron waffles.
As a busy mom, I'm often tempted in the frozen food section as I pass the perfectly arranged boxes with pictures of golden-brown waffles piled high under amber syrup and perfect pats of butter, but when I think about the ingredients most boxed frozen waffles are made with AND the cost of them (6 waffles for $4!), it doesn't seem worth it to me at all. Not when I can easily make my own healthy, delicious waffles at home for less money than the store brands (try 10 for under $2!) and not forego the convenience of frozen waffles.
My solution is to make a single or even double batch of homemade waffles and freeze what we don't eat for breakfast. Then, no matter how much of a rush we're ever in in the morning, I'm always prepared for my kids last minute request for waffles and this couldn't be more nutritious, so I know their bellies are filled with truly wholesome stuff and no one has to fight for the last one since I always have them on hand!
