Eggo waffles are a long-time morning favorite. They are easy to make, cook quickly and serve as a quick breakfast on hectic mornings. Whether your toaster isn't working, is being used by another member of your household or you just want to try something different, you can opt to microwave your Eggo waffles. Microwaving your Eggo waffles can provide you with the same taste without having to break out your toaster.

Touch the center of your Eggos to make sure they are warm enough. If not, heat for an additional 15 seconds at a time until warm.
