Something new with 'Eggo' waffles

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 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.

        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...

              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...

                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....
