Birdseye Potato Waffles are now Gluten Free!

No link I'm afraid as the Birdseye website still says they contain wheat - bad marketing!
But as you can see the actual packaging clearly says Gluten Free - and they were 99p!

Last night I had my special 'whatever is in the kitchen chilli' on waffles.

If you like slow-cooked spicy beans, you'll love this recipe!


1 tin baked beans
1 tin red kidney beans
A few rashers of bacon, chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 large carrot, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp tomato puree
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp dried thyme
2 whole dried chillis


Put everything except the beans and vinegar in a large pot (one you know you can slow cook in without things burning on the bottom) with a couple of tablespoons of olive or sunflower oil.
Fry for 10 minutes with the lid on, stirring frequently.
Add the vinegar, baked beans and the kidney beans along with the water from the can.
Fill one can with hot water from the kettle and add to the pot.
Stir thoroughly and bring to the boil.
Put the lid on and put the pot on a very low heat (as low as it will go.)
Leave for around 3 hours, stirring every half an hour or so.
Leave to sit for a couple of hours before serving and re-heat when needed.

Serve with potato waffles, jacket potato, potato wedges, chips or rice.


  1. This dose,nt help me really, either they contain wheat or not? The web site says it does but it dose,nt say it on the packet. NOT GOOD ENOUGH. GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER BIRDSEYE.

  2. Birds Eye Potato Waffles were once gluten free, then wheat flour was added to the recipe about the time the company stopped us eating burgers by pulling their 100% ones from the shelves. I now don't bother with Birds Eye products because I can't be bothered to check the ingredients labels of things I should be able to have confidence in. It takes too much time to shop if I do.
