Cole’s Middles™ for the Lunch Box Win!
Do you ever just want an easy meal for your family? In our house we love to have dinner movie nights. If you have younger kids you know that allowing your kids to eat anywhere but the table requires foods that doesn’t have the potential of creating a super big mess. Enter Cole’s Middles™! My kids loved them so much that they wanted the leftovers in their lunch boxes. Cole’s Middles™ for the Lunch Box Win (as a mom packing lunch boxes is one of my most dreaded tasks).
For our first time trying Middles™ I heated up three varieties: Plain Bread Middles™ with Mac & Cheese Filling, Salty Pretzel Middles™ with Beer Cheese Filling, and Everything Bagel Middles™ with Cream Cheese Filling. We had a taste test to see which of the products our family really loved and had two big winners!
The Cole’s Middles™ are very easy to make – they would be great for anytime. Preheat the oven to 400°, place the Middles™ on a pan and pop in the oven for 7-9 minutes. Fast, easy, and tasty! Now that my kids are getting older they could even make these themselves in the toaster oven (parental supervision is recommended).
So what were the family favorites in our house? We loved the Plain Bread Middles™ with Mac & Cheese Filling and the Everything Bagel Middles™ with Cream Cheese Filling. We all loved the Everything Bagel Middles™ (pictured above with a bite taken and my son eating one). The cream cheese was evenly dispersed in the middle and every bite was just a good as the first.
The kids were lucky enough that there were leftovers for their lunch boxes as well! They are already asking when they can have Cole’s Middles™ again and I think they will soon be a staple item in our freezer.
Cole’s Middles™ make an easy breakfast, snack or dinner – honestly they are great any time. My kids are dying to have the Bagel Middles™ for breakfast! They would also be great for after school snacks. As a mom with kids that are on the go all the time I can see Cole’s Middles™ becoming one of my regular quick meals – heat them up and then eat them in the car between activities with little worry about messes.
