Today I have decided to take on my families' favorite breakfast food- Eggos. We love how fast they are to make, and you can take them on the go (sans the syrup of course), not to mention how yummy they are. So I put pencil to paper to figure out if I could save any money making them myself. (ok, 1st I did a little online searching to see what other people thought about freezing homemade waffles, and it turns out it works great). I plan on using Bisquick as my starting point for the waffles (remember I said I am not a cook, so for me this is as close to 'from scratch' as I get for now). I did the math and I can make 60 homemade waffles for about $6. That is saving over half, since 60 Eggos at the grocery store cost $15.60, and even when we make it to Costco for the big box of Eggos, it costs $9.06, so I will still be saving 1/3. Now since it takes about 1.5 weeks to go thru 60 Eggos, we will save about $30 a month... wow, doing that math is an eye opener for me.
To the waffle iron I go!
