Moving from the “too big” feeling of South Florida to the “close community” feeling of North-Central Florida has been a pretty amazing experience for my family. Not only is it a college town home to an amazing university, it’s also a really cool place to raise a family. Every weekend, we head to all different types of events, like food truck rallies, museum exhibits, pumpkin festivals, and tailgating parties. I did mention I now live in probably the biggest college town in Florida, right? Tailgating events are everywhere, from your local pizza place to community squares to golf courses. I decided to combine the food truck vibe with a tailgating theme to create this Waffle Bar Tailgating Party.

Most events around town start around 5 pm and last until late at night, so I thought I’d take you from afternoon to evening with this awesome waffle bar. I began by heading to Walmart to purchase the following ingredients to create my waffle bar spread:

  • Eggo Waffles {Homestyle & Chocolate Chip}
  • Smucker’s® Hot Fudge Spoonable Ice Cream Topping
  • Hungry Jack® Original Syrup
  • Breyers® Natural Vanilla Ice Cream
  • Jif Creamy Peanut Butter
  • M&M’S® Minis Milk Chocolate Candies
  • Capri Sun® Fruit Refreshers
  • Planters Dry Roasted Peanuts
  • Folgers Classic Roast Coffee
  • Frozen DOLE® Sliced Strawberries
  • DOLE® Pineapple Tidbits

Because this is a backyard party, I set it up very simply: wooden picnic table, string of lights through the trees, and the wooden fence in the backdrop. The focal point of my spread is my awesome new toaster oven – I thought it gave the perfect retro vibe to this post. I also chose wooden utensils, coordinating plates, and metal accents. This simplicity allows your food to be the star of the show {or the game in this situation}. I carried through with the tailgating theme using football labels on the water bottles, stickers on the utensil buckets, and this awesome football cutting board.

To one side of the table, I placed a beverage station. A little coffee, juice pouches, and bottled water. To the right, my topping bar. With such a fun assortment, everyone can create a waffle they love! I placed the pineapple, strawberry, and M&M’S® Minis in glass jars so that partygoers can see all of the toppings easily.

My toaster oven allowed guests to select a waffle of their choice and toast it up at their leisure {hooray, extension cords}! In just minutes, it’s time to build a delicious waffle treat with everyone’s favorite ingredients. Delicious News! Eggo waffles now have no artificial flavors and colors from natural sources.

I created several combinations of ingredients. The first was a peanut-themed waffle. I began with one Eggo Homestyle Waffle, topped it with Jif Creamy Peanut Butter, Breyers® Natural Vanilla Ice Cream, Planters Dry Roasted Peanuts, and a tablespoon of M&M’S® Minis Milk Chocolate Candies. This creates one serving. {This recipe is about 500 calories and 22 grams of sugar.}

For my next waffle, I spread a layer of , Smucker’s® Hot Fudge Spoonable Ice Cream Topping, then added Breyers® Natural Vanilla Ice Cream, and topped it with DOLE Sliced Strawberries and Hungry Jack® Original Syrup. This creates one serving.

As it got darker outside, we continued to enjoy our tasty Waffle Bar treats. What a fun way to enjoy watching your favorite team play!


I guess it’s time I show you my inspiration for this Waffle Bar Tailgating Party — It’s the Eggo Waffle Bar Truck! This truck is traveling the country creating awesome recipes you can easily re-create at home. I found this truck at my local Walmart over the weekend. I was able to choose from a list of four different waffle and topping combinations or create my own. Best of all? It was free! How awesome is that?
