Breakfast Waffle Taco FAQs

Can I make Homemade waffles instead of using frozen for this recipe?

If you prefer to make your own waffles, go for it! You’ll want to only leave it in your waffle maker until just lightly golden and remove it immediately and set it up on the muffin tin so it can take the shape of the taco while it cools.

I don’t have Eggo Waffles. Can I still make this recipe?

You sure can! Any brand frozen waffle will work here. You can even mix it up and get cinnamon waffles, chocolate chip, blueberry, etc.

Can I use tortillas instead of waffles in this recipe?

Absolutely, you could also use store-bought tortillas if you are short on time or just don’t feel like making waffles. All you need to do is warm them up in the oven for a few minutes, set it up on your muffin tin, and fill it with all your taco fixings!
