March 25th is International Waffle Day. This is a Swedish tradition, though it has spread out into the rest of the world. My daughter has come up with a waffle breakfast sandwich that would probably appeal to lots of kids.

Waffle Pancake Sandwiches
1 Eggo mini waffle "slice" (4 mini waffles)
4 Eggo mini pancakes (or 4 homemade silver dollar pancakes)
4 tsp. peanut butter with mini chocolate chips*

Lightly toast the waffles and pull apart. Thaw mini pancakes in the microwave (about 25 seconds). Put a dollop of the peanut butter mixture on the waffles and top with a mini pancake.

* We keep a container of peanut butter and mini chocolate chips mixed together; she eats this on several things, so it just makes sense to have some on hand. Mini chips work best, but regular chips can be used, too.

Available at Amazon.
