Does your family enjoy a hearty weekend breakfast just as much as mine does? Lately, we have been making our Sunday brunch at home because my son is at the age where he is less that cooperative in restaurants. Meltdowns in the middle of a fairly quiet restaurant were just too much to handle! That is why I prefer to cook meals like eggs, bacon, and Eggo Waffles in the comfort of my own home.
Speaking of waffles, my latest “Sundae” Brunch Self-Serve Eggo Waffle Bar was such a huge hit this past Sunday. After church, it was so easy and assemble this sundae themed bar; hence the name “sundae” rather than Sunday brunch–hey, I thought it was cute! It was only missing the ice cream which was left out by choice!
Typically, we like to enjoy laid back Sundays, so this waffle bar was just that; very laid back, and super fun and delicious way to enjoy some Buttermilk Eggo Waffles. Since a waffle bar can literally have any toppings you choose, I tried to incorporate toppings that you would find on a typical sundae, but with a more nutritional twist.
Since we are a family of five, we picked up two boxes of Buttermilk Eggo Waffles at our local Walmart store. They are typically found in the frozen breakfast isle, but since they are on Roll Back, so they had them conveniently displayed in a special freezer end cap.
I wanted to make our waffle bar self-serve so I cut my Eggo Waffles in half after toasting them. I placed them on a large plate to make assembly easy for all five of us! For the waffle toppings, I simply gathered five glass bowls, and 6 soup spoons for the toppings. I placed each bowl on a flipped over baking sheet and used it as a server to bring my toppings to the table–easy peasy! Prepping each topping the night before also made things super easy for me!

Having a few healthier toppings in a waffles bar balances out the treats. That’s why decided to include raw, chopped almonds because I wanted a good source of healthy fats. My family loves raw almonds, but if you do not; these could be easily substituted with peanuts, walnuts, or pecans.
Since I wanted a fresh topping, I decided to go with some chopped, ripe strawberries. My family loves strawberries so much so these were a total must! I cut the hulls and stems off them, and diced them up. They were so juicy and ripe, but frozen strawberries would have also sufficed.
A waffle bar always needs some sort of chocolate, so I decided to go with some semi-sweet chocolate chips. I knew I was already providing some chocolate sauce, so I didn’t want anything overly sweet. These chips were the perfect touch!
Lastly, we love shredded coconut so I was sure to add some lightly sweetened shredded flakes to our little bar. The flavors seriously all paired together so well, and almost reminded me of a popular candy bar!
Oh, and is a sundae complete without a maraschino cherry? I didn’t think so! that is why I added just enough for us to top off our creation with!
Honestly, our waffle bar was so delicious that I want to start to make it a monthly occurrence. Of course, Eggo Waffles will always be the star! They come in so many delicious flavors that I will have a hard time just choosing one.
These are some of my favorite waffle toppings. What other toppings would you include in your #EggoWaffleBar?
