You CAN cook potato waffles in the toaster – it’s official!

Potato waffles have been a family favourite for many years in Ireland and around the world, but a recent twist in the way you can cook them has just come to light.

Standard practice in this writer’s household has always been 15 minutes in the oven for the waffles, then serve with beans, spaghetti hoops, or peas and sausage, chicken nuggets or maybe even fish fingers.

Delicious!

However, manufacturers Birds Eye have now officially acknowledged that their potato waffles can also be cooked using the kitchen toaster, without sacrificing any of the taste or texture.

The revelation came about after Birds Eye received countless messages from customers who wanted to know if the system would work.

Many were already cooking their waffles using their toasters and swore by the results. Others were sceptical.

So, Birds Eye took control of the situation and ordered their experts to carry out rigorous testing to come up with a definitive answer.

The Daily Star reports that Birds Eye spent more than 103 hours testing 3,000 waffles to decide if the speedy cooking hack produced a waffle that maintained their high standards.

And the answer was it does.

Steve Challouma, Marketing Director at Birds Eye, said: “We know there has been a lot of confusion and debate on this way of cooking our Original Potato Waffles so we decided to put it to the test.

“After days of rigorous ‘toasting’, we’re happy to confirm it is safe to cook our waffles this way and it doesn’t compromise on taste either – you can still expect the same delicious taste that is crispy on the outside and fluffy in the middle!”

Birds Eye recommend twice-cooking the waffles in the toaster on one of the higher settings. They are so happy with the results that they will now start adding the toaster one of the cooking options on the side of the packaging.

So there you go. If all this talk hasn’t got you in the mood for some waffles then perhaps this video will.
