Watch Out Taco Bell - Here Comes The Snack Girl Waffle Taco
June 5, 2014 12 Comments
A couple weeks ago, Snack Girl flamed Taco Bell’s new waffle taco.
I got a couple e-mails requesting that I try to make my own waffle taco. This seemed like such a good idea!
After creating the tacos using my favorite brand of toaster waffle (Van’s), I had a problem. How do I serve them? Taco Bell had molded its product so that you could pick it up. Mine fell apart and the egg went squishing out on the plate.
There are things called “taco holders” which I have seen in restaurants but these proved to be difficult to find. After many hours of searching (not really), I found a solution. Turn over a muffin tin and you have an instant Taco Waffle holder.
Probably not genius – but this might get me a “Mother of the Year” recommendation. Okay, I will take “Mother of the Hour”.
This is delicious, easy, and fun. My version has 200 fewer calories, 24 grams less fat, and 200 mg less sodium than the Taco Bell version. I did leave off the cheese because I thought that was kinda gross.
Do you have a fast breakfast recommendation to share?
