Something new with 'Eggo' waffles

  • c

Last weeknd while grocery shopping bought a couple of boxes of Kellog's Eggo waffles, one blueberry variety and one buttermilk. Was thinking about what to do different other than with slathering on butter and syrup. So I took one of the Blueberry ones toasted it up good and crispy...hot out of the toaster oven added a slice of munster cheese and topped with a sunny side up fried egg! The hot waffle and egg melted the munster just right! Add glass of milk and cup of coffee and you have a quick and easy, and somewhat different way to enjoy your 'let go of my Eggo' waffle.

  1. In season 2 of Top Chef, I think it was Elia who used Eggos as the basis of the breakfast they prepared for the surfers... I think she included some kind of bean spread and definitely topped it with an egg. I don't remember any of the other ingredients but you may be able to locate it at the Bravo website if interested.

      I think it had syrup, prosciutto and a fried egg.

      1. re: saucydiva

        Ha, I immediately thought of Elia's Breakfast, lunch and Dinner Waffle too. It was buttered with muenster cheese melted on it. A refried bean and olive oil mixture was spread on it and it was topped off with a piece of black forest ham and a fried egg and drizzled with maple syrup and flat leaf parsley. I've been meaning to try it.

        1. re: digkv

          I did try it. I had most of the ingredients on hand -- I had leftover spiral ham IIRC, and I don't remember if I had muenster or used another cheese. DH looked askance at it, but I thought it was tasty.

      2. make a make a monte cristo with the waffles as bread; or, make a simple batter of eggs, milk, cinnamon, sgar, vanilla, dip waffles and coat in cornflake crmbs and bake

          I was thinking the exact same thing except it made my arteries hurt.

        2. Creamy PB spread on a perfectly toasted, crunchy-on-the-outside-tender-on-the-inside-still-warm Eggo, so that the PB gets all gooey and melts down into the nooks ...

          ... nuff said.

            Two blueberry eggos toasted, one smeared with PB or Cashew Butter, and the other with Strawberry or Apricot Jelly. Sooo good.
            A competitor in a pillsbury cooking contest used eggos as a base in her stuffing.
            You could also toast one up and top with vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt for that awesome hot cold contrast. Eggo a la mode =) Maybe w/blueberry syrup. . .
            Now I am hungry for waffles...

            1. re: ArikaDawn

              They could also sub for english muffins in eggs benedict or used in a hot ham and cheese. They would probably be good with apple butter as well or topped with warmed spiced peaches/pears and vanilla ice cream.

              1. re: ArikaDawn

                i remember seeing that bake-off with the stuffing! it was the winning recipe...


                apparently the woman who created it has become quite the successful bake-off competitor. she also has a baking blog...


              2. re: charmedgirl

                I ate this for breakfast through much of high school, though I stuck with crunchy peanut butter.

                1. re: charmedgirl

                  They do make some of the best PB & J sandwiches.

                2. My friend uses Eggos to make a variation on a bacon or sausage McMuffin.

                  I like to use them for grilled cheese sandwiches or trifle (make sure you toast them till they're really crispy before mixing them in).

                  I've always wanted to make a strata or bread pudding with them....

                  1. eggos n' gravy (chorizo sausage)

                    eggos Mc muffin (can I say that?)

                    eggos benedict

                    eggos chile verde

                    eggos and creamed spinach over a poached egg on artichoke heart

                    eggos burnt weenie (linguica) sandwich

                    eggos rancheros

                    I love waffles. I like the Trader Joes toaster waffles, too.

                      Toodie - yes on the TJ's waffles! But if I can't get to TJ's, then Eggo's are my second choice. Other brands just aren't the same....

                    2. I love an egg sandwich!

                      Found a recipe in RR's magazine (!), for savory waffles that you would make on your own machine. Cheddar, jalapeno, bacon, and a regular waffle batter. It looked tasty.

                      1. -Slather pb, jelly and drizzle honey or maple syrup over it.

                        open face chicken salad mixed with cranberries and sliver almonds on top of a blueberry waffle

                        take a blueberry waffle, load some cottage cheese on top of it, sprinkle some cinnamon and sugar, put in toaster for a bit

                        1. When I was a kid, one of my favorite desserts was an Eggo waffle topped with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream and drizzled with maple syrup. Yum!!

                          1. Always new ideas on here, love it!

                            1. My kids love these things, thanks to all for the great ideas. Myself, I love them with butter and peanut butter. Drippingly good!

                              1. After reading this fun post-we decided to have Eggos for dinner!!

                                1. Toast some waffles.
                                  Top with fruit (strawberries, peaches, or mangoes are best)
                                  Pile on some banana fluff

                                  --Banana Fluff--
                                  Make some sweetened whipped cream (or use cool whip).
                                  Mash some bananas and combine with the whipped cream.

                                  1. Here is the answer to the EGGO History!!!!!!

                                    Thank you for contacting us concerning Kellogg’s® Eggo® products . We appreciate your interest in our company and products.

                                    The origin of the term Kellogg’s® Eggo® to describe our waffle, pancake and other breakfast products has been lost to history. Kellogg first acquired the Eggo® business through its purchase a number of years ago of Fearn International, a company that owned the Eggo® trademarked products, as well a number of other brands. Typically, when naming our products, we try to choose words that describe the food and can be protected by a trademark. We believe this may have been the case with the Eggo® brand name, as well. Because eggs are an important component of the waffles that consumers make in their own homes, the term Eggo® was probably created to capitalize on that link. But, as we said, the trademarked name had already been assigned to this brand when we purchased the business. While Kellogg did not create the name, we feel fortunate to have acquired a product name and business that has remained so popular and recognizable by consumers through the years.

                                    Although I was unable to locate the recipe you described, we are sending you a recipe I hope you will enjoy. You can also find additional recipes at www.kelloggs.com under the recipe section.

                                      fyi, the reason they couldn't locate the recipe is because the original creation used a pillsbury product ;)

                                      1. I just made a Nutella and marmalade Eggo sandwich; DELICIOUS! I used the Nutri-grain waffles so it's healthy... :D

                                        1. Toast them (or bake 10 min each side in a med-hot oven), then used them instead of bread in stratas. For a breakfasty waffle strata, include cooked chopped maple breakfast sausage or cooked chopped maple or apple flavored bacon. Add some maple syrup to the egg/dairy mixture, and use a cheese you think will play well, such as cheddar, swiss, or fontina.
