I suspected that the shape was the difference. My regular waffle maker makes round waffles that are about 8 inches in diameter, and scored into four wedges. Wedges don't sit in a toaster neatly. Eggos are round. Circles sit in a toaster symmetrically. I know. Why would that make a difference? Yeah. I don't know. But tell that to my kiddos.
So I took the risk, and I bought the mini waffle maker. And it worked--the people liked, and ate, the frozen waffles. Now, about once a week, I make a batch of waffles in the mini waffle maker, flash freeze, and the people eat them throughout the week. It's cheaper than Eggos, the people like them, and my waffles have fewer ingredients than Eggos. Win-win-win.
I also make other foods for the people to eat, and mostly they do. Here's what's on the menu this week:
- Chicken enchilada soup, tortilla chips
- Spaghetti, oven roasted green beans, garlic toast
- Fend for yourself
- Hot dogs or brats, buns, chips, carrots
- Baked bone-in chicken breast, mixed veggies, oven roasted potatoes
