If you are like me then you got that much needed waffle maker as a wedding gift and it has been sitting at the back of your cupboard ever since. You probably had big dreams of eating waffles every Sunday with your betrothed. But after the 'I Dos' and a kid or two later you have settled for those frozen disks as a poor substitute to the warm, fluffy yumminess of fresh waffles. Reality is there is something daunting about that waffle maker; like using it is some huge committment that requires thought and energy that you just dont have to give. Or maybe it is the waffle itself that holds us back. I decided that it was time to give that waffle maker its day in the sun.
I recently came across a recipe that used the waffle maker to cook cornbread. Clever, I thought. If cornbread can be used then cookie dough, cake mix and cinnamon rolls were possible as well. And then inspiration struck...EGGS. My daughter already eats her eggs with syrup and she loves waffles. It was perfect. They cook up so fast and interestingly enough the eggs tasted superb.
Break out that waffle maker and give it a try!
What you need:
- Waffle maker
- Cooking spray
- 4 eggs
- salt and pepper
Wipe away the dust from the top of the waffle maker. Then turn it on. While it is heating up scramble the eggs in a bowl adding salt and pepper.
Once the waffle maker is heated up spray it generously with cooking spray.
Slowly pour the egg mixture onto the waffle maker. It takes about one egg per waffle square, so measure it out accordingly.
|this is using 2 large eggs.|
Close the lid for about 30 seconds and finish the cooking. It really doesn't take very long so keep an eye on it.
Getting it out is a little tricky. Just go slowly and keep it as intact as possible.
I drizzled some syrup on it for my little one and she ate this up. It was very tasty!
