Breakfast on the Go Recipes - Eggo Bites

Waking up in the morning can be such a challenge. Finding something quick and easy to eat while on the go is even more of a challenge, especially for people like me who have difficulty functioning before noon. 

Here are a few easy recipes to help get you or your family get out the door quickly with a healthy breakfast. 


Kellogg's Eggo Bites Waffle
