Summer Salad with Eggo Croutons & Giveaway

Summer Salad with Eggo Cr

If it were up to me, I would have salad every night for dinner.

It doesn’t happen often since my kids don’t like salad.

So when I ship them off to friends houses, I always make a nice salad full of fruit, and some protein.

Strawberries and blueberries are both in season right now, take advantage of it and make your salad colorful.

Oh, and don’t grab a box of pre-made crusty, break your teeth croutons, just open your freezer and pull out the Eggo® Waffles.

Yep, this is another recipe I developed for my duties as an Chief  Waffle Officer.

Thick and Fluffy Eggo® Waffles, cut up, seasoned and pan fried in a bit of butter and extra virgin olive oil.

Uh, huh. I turned a waffle into a crouton. It was kinda a no-brainer.

I hope you have already submitted your recipe to the Great Waffle Off contest! You could win $5K.
