Did you know you can make an omelet on a waffle maker?
Of course this isn’t my original idea, but I thought I would give it a whirl and see how the eggs come out.
I will tell you, the eggs were really good. You know how I know? My husband and three kids said so, LOL. And of course I ate it too and from first hand will verify they came out yummy!
I will be creating many, many more renditions of these wonderful egg waffles.
I didn’t want plain eggs, so I pulled some leftover cooked carrots, cauliflower, and broccoli out of the fridge. I proceeded to throw them in the food processor with some fresh spinach leaves as well. Then I took 10 fresh eggs from the coop and whisked the eggs and veggies together.
When the waffle maker was nice and hot I sprayed the top and bottom griddle with cooking spray and then ladled the egg mixture on to the greased iron making sure not o overfill.
It literally took about 2 minutes to cook the eggs!! I loved how fast making these were.
Since I like my omelets with cheese — I placed the omelet into the warm oven sprinkled with american and mozzarella cheese. Once the cheese was melted they were ready to eat!
Waffle Maker Omelets
Makes 4 Waffle Omelets
- Cooking Spray
- 10 eggs
- Veggies of your choice
- Cheese, to top omelet
Heat oven to 500º F.
Place veggies in a food processor and chop vegetables until they are nice and fine.
Next in a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs and then add vegetables until well combined.
Pour just enough mixture onto a greased waffle iron/maker to cover the entire surface area. Do not overfill the griddle or you will have your omelet spewing out the sides.
Keep an eye on your eggs to see how done you would like them cooked. Once cooked to your liking, remove from griddle and place on an oven safe plate. Top with cheese and place into heated oven. When cheese is fully melted serve immediately.
