As a registered dietitian, healthy food is important to me. When I grocery shop for my family, the first thing I do is flip the package over to check out the ingredients. Nutrients are important, but ingredients are key. That’s why I buy Van’s Ancient Grain waffles. They are packed with whole grains, sweetened with fruit juice, and non-GMO project verified. Plus, my family loves them.
Waffle sandwiches are big around here. We even have a waffle sandwich truck that shows up at our farmer’s market each week. Because April is National Gardening Month, I decided to take a savory spin on the waffle sandwich by including fresh herbs from the garden. With fresh mozzarella cheese, beefy heirloom tomatoes, fresh basil, and a drizzle of sweet balsamic, the combination of flavors is fantastic! Make a sandwich for you, or cut it up into bite-sized appetizers. These would be great for a party and can be served at room temperature. If you want to serve these for a party appetizer, secure sandwich bites with toothpicks.
