Review of Birds Eye Potato Waffles
Each waffle is an attractive latticed effect, oblong of pale golden brown, processed potato. When cooked properly, the waffle retains it's golden brown colour and the outside is crisp in texture, whilst the inside is a creamy white soft mashed potato. This nestles within the outer casing providing a delicious contrast of texture. They smell absolutely delicious as they cook and are extremely easy to prepare. The taste is very fresh and quite similar to chips, but without the fatty after taste I often find with any fried food.Waffles are a very versatile food, an alternative to chips or ordinary mashed potato.
Birds Eye Potato waffles come in a recyclable cardboard box, predominantly red in colour with the Birds Eye logo in a white font. A picture of a cooked waffle topped with peas and sweetcorn is on the right of the the strap line “12 potato waffles---made with real potatoes”.The packaging also carries as you might expect, serving suggestions, cooking instructions, nutritional values, ingredients and allergy advice.
Potato waffles can be oven cooked, grilled or cooked on a barbeque. They are best cooked from frozen.
To oven cook:- Preheat oven to gas 7, electricity 220 degree and cook for approximately 15 minutes, on a baking tin, turning once during cooking.
I usually oven cook this product and find it is not necessary to grease or line my tin as they seem to ooze a little fat in the cooking process, which is adequate to ensure that they do not stick to the baking tin.Birds Eye also inform consumers that the product should not be re frozen once thawed out and that cooking instructions are guidelines only.
As previously mentioned Birds Eye Potato Waffles are a very versatile addition to your freezer. They taste great on their own as a quick snack and go with so many other foods that they are a really adaptable way of serving potatoes. I particularly enjoy them with a light meal such as an omelette or a slice of quiche, my other half sometimes grills himself a couple of waffles, adds a slice of cheese and then tops the waffles with scrambled egg, as a substantial lunch.
We don't tend to eat much fried food in our house and I rarely cook chips, but these waffles fit the bill when a chip accompaniment would normally be used. They are lower in fat and calories that traditional fried chips, which has to be a bonus!
