What To Pack With Your Waffle Kabobs

You can pretty much pack anything you have on hand in your child’s lunch box that goes with the breakfast for lunch idea. A hard-boiled egg and some fresh kiwi and blueberries make for great side dishes. You can add yogurt (which can also be used for dipping!), cheese, or a mandarin orange to round out their lunch box.

Lunch Waffle Skewers FAQs

Can I use regular bacon instead of turkey bacon on my skewer?

Yes! If you want to use regular bacon, you can. You’ll need to add the bacon to the skewer while it’s still hot and malleable. If you wait until it’s cooled it will most likely be too hard/crisp to thread on the skewer without crumbling. Turkey bacon doesn’t get as crispy as bacon so that’s why this recipe uses it.

Can I use sausage?

You can! If your child is not a fan of bacon feel free to substitute it for precooked sausage. The sweet Eggo waffle pairs well with the sausage.

Do I have to use mini waffles?

Nope! If you don’t have or don’t like the mini waffles, you can use any kind of Eggo waffle. You’ll just need to cut it into smaller pieces so that it will fit on your skewer.

Do I have to add strawberries?

Nope! If you want, you can leave out the fruit and just put turkey bacon, and syrup on the mini waffles for a more savory version.

Can I vary the fruit?

Yes! You can use any type of fresh fruit you have on hand. Bananas, peaches, grapes, and apples would work great too. Just make sure whatever you choose to add will stay in place while it’s being skewered with turkey bacon so that your fruit doesn’t come off the stick.

Can I add syrup?

Yes! If you want to pour syrup on your mini waffles, feel free to do so. Just remember that if you’re packing them in a lunch box it will get soggy fast unless you pack extra just for dipping.

Can I add butter?

Yes! If you want to add a little bit of spreadable butter, that is okay too. You can also toast up your waffles and smear some peanut or almond butter in between them for an extra protein boost if you’re packing this as a full meal instead of just a snack.
