BIRDS Eye has revealed a hack to get your potato waffles on the plate faster – and it's by using a toaster.
The frozen food brand spent more than 103 hours testing the method on 3,000 waffles – and it's sent fans into a frenzy.
Waffle eaters have until now been recommended to heat them in the oven for 15 minutes, but Birds Eye has confirmed "toasting" as a cooking method.
Saving Brits both time and money, the food brand is now adding the speedy cooking method to the waffle packs.
All you need to do to get your golden potato snack ready to eat is set your toaster to a medium/high setting and place them inside.
After the initial pop-up, the waffles should be toasted for a second time until they are golden yellow in colour.
Then simply leave them to cool for one minute before tucking in on the crispy and fluffy snack.
The news has divided fans on social media, with some saying their lives have "changed for the better".
While others weren't as impressed and claim they've been doing it for years.
One user posted on Twitter: "Omg major news from Birds Eye. Their waffles can be made in the toaster this is a major game changer for a night worker like me!!"
And another added: "Another 🤯 thing I have learned today is that you can toast your Waffles in a TOASTER.
"Birds Eye did some rigorous testing. Wow, new work lunch option success."
Meanwhile, a third Twitter user said: "So @BirdsEyeUK have finally caught up with cooking potato waffles in the toaster.
"Been doing this for over a decade. Solid work!"
And another wrote: "I've been putting them in the toaster for more years than I can remember!!"
According to a social media poll by Birds Eye, almost two thirds of Brits (63 per cent) didn't know you could toast the potato snack.
A pack of 10 Birds Eye potato waffles is currently found the cheapest at Asda and Sainsbury's, where it'll set you back £1.
Last year, Birds Eye rolled out mini RAINBOW waffles tasting of mash potato, beetroot, garden pea and sweet potato.
Even earlier, it also launched sweet potato waffles for fans.
A few years ago, one mum panic-bought 130 Birds Eye potato waffles after a VERY upsetting announcement.
