This is a sponsored post about how to build a waffle bar!
My kids love Eggo Waffles. They aren’t even teenagers yet (not for quite a few more years) and they already go through a box faster than you can say L’eggo my Eggo. It’s crazy.
We celebrated Edison’s 2nd birthday over the weekend and by the time Sunday rolled around I just wanted to relax. I was coming down with some cooties the kids brought home and I wanted to keep meals simple on Sunday.
It goes without saying an Eggo Waffle Bar would be a perfect choice.
Here’s the thing. It’s just me, my husband and the kids. The guests have gone home. So while it’s easy to have that Pinterest Mom moment, it’s okay not to when you are setting up your easy weekend Eggo Waffle Bar. I promise imperfections are allowed here. This is supposed to be simple and FUN. (and delicious too!)
I just got a new kitchen island last week (yay) that’s the perfect set up for a casual waffle bar. It made it super easy to spread out the fixins so the kids could build their waffles and then eat them in the living room (gasp!)
The makings of an Easy Weekend Eggo Waffle Bar:
1.) Mini Eggo Waffles. Our kids love these because they are easy for them to hold, even with toppings. My husband and I love them because they can be enjoyed in one bite.
2.) Your favorite toaster. My first world problem is I don’t have power on my kitchen island, so my toaster has to live on the counter when I’m cooking waffles. I’ve been told you can heat up waffles in the oven, but this is not a skill I have. 🙂
3.) Fruit and other toppings you already have in your kitchen! What makes this waffle bar so simple is I used on hand ingredients. Yogurt, nuts, chocolate chips, caramel syrup… Granted, I raided my baking supplies for the nuts and chocolate chips, but I have to go out and buy anything. You can use frozen fruit too, just make a quick compote on the stove by heating up the fruit and adding some honey to make a little syrup. Delicious!
4.) Leftover party plates and napkins make it fun. Sure you can pull out the regular plates, but I knew the kids would like me using the extra plates and napkins from Edison’s party. Plus it made cleanup that much easier – less dishes to wash just a trip to the compost bin!
5.) A few fun mix and match plates and serving pieces already in your kitchen. Go ahead and pull out that neglected cake stand and appetizer bowls and use them to display your waffle bar goodies. It will make everyone feel special without a lot of extra work.
The only problem is now the kids will expect a waffle bar more often because it’s so easy to do!
