A child of the 70’s and 80’s, I grew up hearing ‘Leggo My Eggo!’ The tag line has endured generations just as Eggo Waffles have. This is THE breakfast my girls prefer, hands down. For me, on a school day, when we are running around looking for homework, shoes – why can’t they EVER find their shoes? – backpacks and other items needed before they board the bus, the unmistakable pop of the toaster tells them their delicious breakfast is ready! I then come home, get ready to work for the day and often have a Kellogg’s® Eggo® Nutri-Grain® Low Fat Whole Wheat Waffle right next to me. But not everything stays the same. In fact, Eggo is changing. But in a really, really good way! Eggo Waffles now have colors and flavors from natural sources! Yep! Eggo Waffles has even more reason to be mom and child’s first choice for a delicious, fun and fast breakfast! For instance, my Eggo Benedict with Light Hollandaise Sauce Recipe is better because of them!
I can’t pass the frozen food aisle without stopping at the Eggo aisle. You will recognize the Eggo Waffles that now have colors & flavors from natural sources! Just look for the green ‘ribbon’ on the side of the box. I stocked up at Walmart getting my kid’s favorite, Kellogg’s® Eggo® Chocolatey Chip Waffles, my favorite Kellogg’s® Eggo® Nutri-Grain® Low Fat Whole Wheat Waffle and then the classic Kellogg’s® Eggo® Thick & Fluffy Original.

Eggo Waffles fit easily in my toaster and pop up with a warm crunchy softness that only Eggo Waffles has perfected. But sometimes we want more from our waffles. Like a base for add on’s that makes breakfast that much more special! Playing around in the kitchen one day, I took one of my all time favorite meals and upgraded it by using a Kellogg’s® Eggo® Nutri-Grain® Low Fat Whole Wheat Waffle instead of an English Muffin! Thus was born my Eggo Benedict with Light Hollandaise Sauce!
It may sound weird but I promise, it is so not weird. It is so delicious! The crunch of the waffles with the gooeyness of the egg combines with the Hollandaise sauce makes this a meal that will start your day with a smile! I make this in a matter of minutes, cooking the sauce and the eggs in the time it takes for my Eggo® Nutri-Grain® Low Fat Whole Wheat Waffle to pop up in the toaster!
- 1 Kellogg's® Eggo® Nutri-Grain® Low Fat Whole Wheat Waffle (or variety of your choice)
- 2-3 leaves of spinach
- 1 egg, poached
- 2 egg yolks
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 1 Tbsp butter
- ⅛ tsp paprika
- ¼ Cup water
- ¼ Cup regular sour cream (can also use Greek Yogurt)
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- ¼ tsp lemon zest
- ¼ Cup fresh chives
- Place your Kellogg's® Eggo® Nutri-Grain® Low Fat Whole Wheat Waffle in the toaster and cook. When cooked, add a few leaves of Spinach to the waffle. Set aside.
- In a pan, continuously beat the egg yolks and olive oil in the melting butter. Don't stop until you get a thick sauce. I do this over medium high heat. Beat in the lemon juice, lemon zest, paprika, and salt and pepper to taste. Add ¼ cup of water to the pan and bring to a gentle simmer while continuously beating. Once it simmers, remove sauce from heat. When the sauce has calmed and is no longer simmering, add in sour cream, beating continuously until there are no lumps. Garnish with chives and set aside.
- Meanwhile, boil about a cup or so of water in a small saucepan. Add a teaspoon of vinegar. When you are ready, poached eggs cook quickly, add your egg to the water. Cook until white all around. Middle will be soft. Pull out with a slotted spoon and place on the Eggo Waffle.
- Spoon over sauce and enjoy!
Tips on this recipe:
- When making the egg yolk/ olive oil/ butter mix, heat the skillet first and then pull it off to mix. Otherwise you will cook the yolk and have to start over.
- You can make the sauce ahead of time and just warm it in the microwave when it is time to use it. Just heat and stir well before laying it over the eggs.
- You can do the eggs in a skillet as gently fried if you want as well.
- You can add a slice of Canadian Bacon in if you choose between the Spinach and the egg.
This may seem like a lot for a simple breakfast but it is easier than you think and so worth it! The taste is out of this world as well! Having the Eggo® Nutri-Grain® Low Fat Whole Wheat Waffle as a base adds that wonderful crunch that we all love in traditional Eggs Benedict! I love that I can cut it easier, get more flavor from it and that it provides a great start to my breakfast!
