Breakfast Bites {In 5 Minutes or Less!}

My kids have this dream that I will be the cool breakfast mom. I am a cool mom in a lot of ways. Okay. Maybe not a lot of ways, and I’m pretty sure I think I’m cooler than my kids think I am. But I am not the coolest breakfast mom. We eat a lot of cold cereal. Sometimes scrambled eggs. Pancakes, waffles, all that good stuff is pretty much saved for dinner, birthdays, and the first in a series of snow days (the third and fourth snow days are not nearly as celebratory. For anyone.)

Have you seen these little Eggo Bites? Apparently they have made me a much cooler mom. They’re these pouches of little waffles or French toast. You can pop them in the microwave or the toaster and you can eat them on the go.

Which is awesome.

But. My kids have a long way to go from breakfast until lunch and they need a little bulking up to give the waffles some staying power, so I came up with a few ideas to dress them up a little. And seriously…you guys…all of these concoctions were all delicious and I would serve any of them to overnight guests in my home or at a brunch with fancy friends or eat them for lunch. And they’re all super easy–like 5 minutes or less.

First up? The Mini Maple Waffle Bacon, Egg, & Cheese Bite. This was my husband’s favorite.

You’ll need a couple of scrambled eggs, some shredded cheddar cheese, and a slice of precooked bacon for each pair of bite-sized waffles. While the eggs are scrambling, toast the waffles in the toaster, then break them apart. Break each piece of bacon in half and put two halves on one little waffle, add some eggs, sprinkle with cheese, and top with another waffle and serve. Each pouch makes 4 sandwiches.

For the Mini Peanut Butter- Banana French Toastwiches, you’ll need the Bite-Sized Cinnamon French Toast. Heat it in the toaster, then break the pieces apart and spread each side with peanut butter (I used fresh-ground honey roasted peanut butter from the grocery store). I placed a banana on one peanut-buttered side and then topped it with the other piece. Each pouch  makes 4 sandwiches..

The last thing I made was Yogurt, Honey, and Berry French Toast Bites. I toasted the vanilla French toast bites in my toaster (but the cinnamon would work, too!) Then I broke them apart and spread 1 1/2 teaspoons of honey Greek yogurt on each piece, then topped them with strawberry slices, blueberries, and a little drizzle of honey. Each pouch makes 8 bites.

We loved all of these! They’re totally joining our breakfast (and, let’s face it, lunch and dinner) rotation. If you want to try them, too, we have some coupons for free products to give away! Just leave us a comment and tell us which recipe you want to try! We’ll pick a winner on Tuesday night and announce it on Wednesday!

  1. Perfect! I agree with needing to add bulk for the kids to get from breakfast to lunch! My kids would love any of these, but egg and cheese sandwiches are a staple here, so I imagine they’d be pretty happy with a waffle sandwich 😉

  2. I love all of these ideas! I particularly am looking forward to trying the first one-the mini maple waffle. Sounds like the perfect little easy combo of savory and sweet!

  3. This brings back memories from college–I’d buy my brother boxes of Eggos from Costco. I am a huge fan of the egg, bacon & cheese sandwich!

  4. Wow, so cute! I love mini things! These are adorable. They all look amazing, but I definitely want to try out the yogurt and berry french toast bites first!

  5. We’d probably enjoy the egg and bacon ones the most, but I think the berry ones would be easier to make, so that’s my vote. 🙂

  6. I love me some peanut butter and banana so that would have to be my fav. My kids are college aged now, but I’ll bet they’d love these – I will try them out next time they are home on break!

  7. Oh boy, tough decision. First. I’d like to try the maple waffle, bacon, egg, and cheese sandwiches, then the PB and banana french toastwiches. They sound super yummy!!!

  8. I would go for peanut butter and banana any day. Adding a couple little mini chocolate chips wouldn’t be awful either.
    Actually I was thinking how great the little waffles would be as li appetizers or for dinner, served open faced with chicken nuggets with a syrup drizzle. Mini chicken and waffles!

  9. So excited about these recipes!! We’ve discovered these YUMMY Eggo bites at our house and they’ve come in super handy as my daughter runs out the door everyday at 5:45am! Can’t wait to try all 3 variations…she’s going to LOVE them!!

  10. I love the yogurt, honey and berry combination and the bacon, egg and cheese. Clever ideas that I am sure my kids will enjoy.

  11. my 11 daughter is learning to cook, and I thought of her when I saw these- a fun and delicious and easy thing for her to make and serve for the family! I imagine she’d want to do the fruit version since its so pretty, but she and ask of us would devour the egg sandwich ones in no time, also. Thanks for sharing!

  12. These are such a good idea!! The peanut butter and banana would be my choice to try. But I would eat any of them. I need to make these soon.

  13. I have been wanting to try these little bites… waffle sandwiches would be my pick. 🙂 Just the photos alone do some MAJOR selling! Thanks for the ideas to SPARK my breakfast routine!!

  14. I’d love to choose all 3, but if I had to choose just one it would probably be the yogurt, honey, berry french toast bites. And don’t tell anyone, but I might turn them into ice cream, berry, caramel sauce french toast bites and serve them for dessert instead. Even at 8 in the morning that sounds tempting!

  15. I would probably try the berry french toast bites. My kids would like the maple breakfast sandwiches of which they would each eat the whole 8 bites.

  16. Maple, bacon, eggs, waffles, cheese???? And miniature? You have saved me from a plate full of more calories than what it takes to feed half of the African continent! I want to try that one for sure!

  17. Hard to choose between the pb banana and honey berry but let’s go with….pb banana. That way I can feel good about the protein in peanut butter…it does have protein, right? A nutritionist I am not.

  18. I really want to be the kind of mom that makes a hot, delicious, gourmet breakfast every morning. But oh my goodness, with lunches, dinner and everything else in between, who has time for that?!
