Mini Waffle Breakfast Sandwiches! Quick, easy to make and healthy! Made with Van’s Mini Waffles, these are the perfect back to school breakfast to get kids (and adults) ready for the day!
It’s that time of the year! When your Facebook feed is filled with photos of your friends’ kids with their backpacks! Back to school! Depending on where you live in the country, some of you are already geared up and heading back to school. My friends in California have already started the new school year and it’s been so great to see so many smiling faces. . the kids and the parents!
We don’t start school until September 1st but I’m already in full swing preparation! We just registered and took school photos (any other schools do this in the summer?) and now I’m focusing on healthy breakfast and lunch ideas.
My kids have to be at the bus stop by 7am. Yes, you read that correctly, 7am. So, during the school year, it’s very early days for all of us. I’m a morning person but my kids are not so it’s hard getting them up and out of bed.
Some mornings I have to bribe them with a bonus treat for breakfast or tell them which fun snacks that I’m sticking into their lunchbox. My oldest is obsessed with avocados. If there’s an avocado involved, she’s there. Just like her momma.
My kids and I are loving these Mini Waffles from Van’s Foods. They are made with 100 percent whole grains and packaged into bite-sized pieces! They are the perfect size for kids and adults on the go! They are nutritious, tasty and cute. I like to think they’re made for everyone.
And you can make these delicious and fun mini waffle breakfast sandwiches!
Now, you may be wondering how I get these ready and on the table on a school day? If I’m fully prepared and prepped, I make the eggs the night before and just keep them in the fridge, along with the sliced tomatoes. Or, my husband and I tag team and he makes the eggs and I get the kids up and dressed. And honestly, some mornings will just be these mini waffles with fruit and maple syrup!
Either way, these are extremely quick and easy to make. The waffles go directly into the toaster oven and while they are cooking, I slice the avocados. These mini waffle breakfast sandwiches are a healthy and balanced breakfast and just what kids and adults need in the mornings. I’ve even tried these with sliced hard-boiled eggs (which you make the night before, peel and have them ready to go in the fridge for the next morning); basically, don’t skip the eggs! Eggs are a great source of protein!
