Strawberry Nutella Waffle Sandwiches (And A Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker Giveaway!)

A quick easy way to get a hot breakfast into your day!

 Nutella and Strawberry Waffle Sandwich

 

With back to school comes back to school mornings.  Not fun.  Here’s a peek into what I experience on a daily basis.  Each morning  the school bus picks my kids up at 8:50 am.  Which means we need to be at the bus stop no later than 8:45 a.m.  My oldest daughter is almost 10 and is a self starter.  She pops up out of bed (without an alarm) by 7:00 am.  She dresses, fixes her bed and with a sunny disposition in tow, she bounds down the stairs where she immediately sets about making her own breakfast.   She then sits down to read, write or draw-just for fun.  After breakfast she makes her own lunch.  And since she loves making things in the kitchen, she often graciously makes her brother’s lunch too!

Her brother is 8 and is a bit less motivated.   My first attempt to rouse him out of bed is 8:00 a.m.  Needless to say I’m unsuccessful.  10 minutes later I yank the covers off him and turn on his lights and loudly pronounce that he now only has 30 minutes until the bus will come.

While he frustrates me, I acknowledge that he may be the smartest of us all.  Because by the time he comes down, his lunch is made, his back pack is packed and because we don’t have much time I’m unwrapping a granola bar or a pop tart so he can eat as we head out.  The fact that he has slept longer than everyone else has not escaped me.

Hamilton Beach kindly sent me this breakfast sandwich maker to test out.  I thought the first week of school would be the perfect opportunity.  It turned out to be the best idea!  I thought it would be fun to serve waffles as the “bread” for our breakfast sandwiches, I mean duh? Right? We eat waffles for breakfast all the time!  You could use any sort of filling, such as eggs, sausage, ham, peanut butter, apples. etc.  I chose Nutella and strawberries because we adore that combo!  The sandwich maker was easy enough for my daughter to use herself!  In a matter of minutes she had a hot sandwich for her brother and one for herself!  It was that easy!

It was the perfect scenario.  Ellie got to “cook”, Owen got breakfast made for him and I knew everyone would start the day right!
