I am sure many Moms can sympathize when I say that my kids are picky eaters. When we try a new restaurant, we try to play it safe and order something that seems pretty generic for the kids. But ultimately, they will find something that doesn’t quite look/taste/feel/smell right and turn up their noses. As a parent, I am totally frustrated.
However, one restaurant that my kids will clean their plates without fail is IHOP which has made our visits quite frequent (especially on Fridays during Lent…pancakes are meat-free!). I love that the kids menu includes calorie counts and the adult menu includes a “Light and Fit” section which my hubby loves.
During tonight’s IHOP visit, my family and I were on a mission. We were tasked to try a brand new menu item…Griddle Melts. When we entered the lobby, we saw the signage for the new item and I will admit that they looked mighty tasty. A bit about the three savory Griddle Melts:
- Spinach, Roasted Pepper & Cheese
Sautéed spinach in a fluffy egg omelet topped with roasted red peppers, onions, melted Provolone, Parmesan and Pepper Jack cheeses on grilled artisan sourdough bread. Served with your choice of hash browns, French fries or seasonal fruit.
Smoked ham and sautéed peppers and onions in a classic omelet, topped with sliced ham, melted American cheese and served on grilled artisan sourdough bread. Served with your choice of hash browns, French fries or seasonal fruit.
- Ham & Egg Melt
Sliced ham and melted Swiss and American cheeses over a fluffy egg omelet served on grilled artisan sourdough bread. Served with your choice of hash browns, French fries or seasonal fruit.
After taking a minute to decide, we went with the Ham and Egg Melt (I am a sucker for grilled ham). I was pleased to see that you could order a half size sandwich plus a side for just $4.99 which was honestly enough food for me. When the Griddle Melt came out of the kitchen, it smelled great! The cheese was melted and begging me to dive in. YUM!
Next time you are looking for a tasty breakfast any time of the day, head to IHOP and try one of the new Griddle Melts. Your tummy will thank you! Mouth watering? Enter to win a $25 IHOP gift card below!
