Copycat Eggo Waffles are the perfect breakfast for on-the-go families. These frozen waffles can be popped in the toaster for a quick and easy meal or snack.
There are few things in this world more delicious than a freshly made waffle. Warm, fluffy, and perfect with a dollop of butter and syrup, waffles are the breakfast of champions. But sometimes, you don't have time to make them from scratch.
That's where Eggo waffles come in. But instead of buying them from a store you can now make a batch at home and freeze them to reheat later. You simply pop them into a toaster, just like an Eggo. The best part about this recipe is that they are made with no high fructose corn syrup, making them a healthier option than most prepackaged waffles.
The easiest way to make these is with a Dash mini waffle maker.
If you don't have one, you can use a standard waffle maker and freeze the quarters instead. They also sell mini waffle makers that will make four at once, these are MUCH easier than the single ones. While the single ones are much cheaper, they can take quite a bit, but they are fun for kids to help with. Just make sure they don't burn themselves!
The recipe below is how to make them from scratch but you can always simply use Bisquick or some other mix, just follow the instructions and cook as usual.
How do you freeze and reheat waffles?
To freeze waffles, place them on a baking sheet in a single layer and pop them in the freezer. Once they're frozen solid, transfer them to a zip-top bag or container. When you're ready to eat, simply reheat in the toaster until crisp.
These frozen beauties are easy to make and just as delicious as the real thing. And now, thanks to this copycat recipe, you can enjoy Eggo waffles any time you want!
