One of my favorite new food crazes is the food truck. They’re like traveling little boxes of gastronomic delight that put out unique and creative food just because they can. With no brick and mortar overhead, they’re able to be as unique as they want with their food offerings, and can change flavors on a dime. All the better for us! So it’s pretty exciting stuff that there is a truck full of waffle goodness courtesy of Eggo® waffles coming to WalMart in a town near you soon! (click here for dates and locations)
Eggo has been traveling around the country exclusive to Walmart locations with the Eggo Waffle Bar Truck and next stop is the state of Florida from now till January 2018! Check out the Eggo Waffle Bar Truck for your Walmart exclusive inspiration guide and additional savings while supplies last. The inspiration guide has even more inspiration on bringing the waffle bar home.
Looking at that list, though, we have a loooong time to wait for some waffle truck awesome sauce so we’re just going to take whatever opportunity that comes up to make our own waffle truck style waffle bar at home!
Who needs sleep?
Weekends almost always mean sleepovers for our kids–so there is really no better excuse to be the best mom ever and set up a waffle bar. When they’re really lucky, they get a waffle bar, party style!
A stop at your local WalMart superstore will net you supplies to set one up yourself, and add a few printables you’ll find on this page to make your waffle bar really great. You can make this a breakfast for dinner situation if you’re up for it for your rowdy crew. And, delicious news–Eggo waffles now have no artificial flavors and colors from natural sources.
When you’re setting out your bar, just be sure to toast up all those Kellogg’s® Eggo® Homestyle waffles, first! Also, I love using ramekins for little amounts of toppings. They’re inexpensive and you’ll use them for everything, even after your waffle bar.
We opted for food-truck-like food trays for this bar to really get everyone in the “I’m at a waffle truck right now” frame of mind at our sleepover. You can find parchment paper to line the trays with to help keep messes under control.
For something like a waffle sundae, a cute sundae cup is a great idea.
We set out so many toppings for the kids to choose from to make their own creations. Sometimes creativity needs a push in the right direction, so we hung some signs with some recipe ideas for them to get started. You can download them here.
For the waffle purist, it’s never a bad idea to include a big bottle of Hungry Jack® Original Syrup, too.
Elvis has left the building waffles
Named for the famous crooner who loved peanut butter and banana sandwiches. Here’s what they’ll need to make them:
- 2 Kellogg’s® Eggo® Homestyle
- 2 tablespoons Jif® Creamy Peanut Butter
- 1 Banana
- 2 tablespoons Honey
Approximately 994 calories. And if you want to sprinkle a few Planters Dry Roasted Peanuts on top, it would make it even better!
Sundae Stroll Waffles
This was my sweet-toothed daughter’s favorite without question!
- 2 Kellogg’s® Eggo® Homestyle Waffles
- 1/4 cup Smucker’s® Hot Fudge Spoonable Ice Cream Topping
- 1/2 cup Reddi-wip® Original Dairy Whipped Topping
- 1/2 cup Breyers® Natural Vanilla Ice Cream
- 1/2 cup Frozen DOLE® Sliced Strawberries
Approximately 800 calories. When my daughter made this, a few M&M’S® Minis Milk Chocolate Candies also made it on top. Go figure. If you’re feeling more like a banana split, you could always add in a few banana slices and DOLE® Pineapple Tidbits.
Sunny Side Up Waffles
Running out of ingredients (like bread) has led to some of our family’s most beloved food items, like waffle sandwiches. This recipe might be a bit more for the adults as its a savory dish, but no less liked for it.
- 2 Kellogg’s® Eggo® Homestyle Waffle
- 1 Fried Egg
- 1 Sausage
- 1 slice cheddar jack Cheese
Approximately 700 calories. Put it all together and it makes one mean waffle sandwich!
quenching waffle bar thirsts
We’re talking portable when we talk waffle trucks, so our drinks have to be of the to-go variety as well. Capri Sun® Fruit Refreshers in Very Berry Punch are a kid favorite, and we’ve always got Folgers Classic Roast Coffee on hand for the adults.
A few disposable coffee cups with “Wake me when there’s waffles” tags (download them here) perk up the party.
waffle bar ideas – decorating
There’s not that much to hand make here, but what there is is mightily cute! I call my waffle friend Wanda, and stringing a few of her together is a perfect party popping pennant.
To make it? Use one of these files (the SVG is for those of you with a cutting machine like a Cricut).
Use some thin ribbon to make a banner and a couple of pom poms for accents.
The “Who needs sleep?” banner I personally used my cutting machine for, but it’s totally do-able with a pair of scissors as well.
Wanda the waffle also made her way onto some party picks–these are 2 inch circles, and I usually use a punch to cut things like this out.
I really can’t wait until the Eggo® waffle truck comes our way! It’s going to be so much fun.
