I’m afraid this is not my original idea, but I saw a picture in a magazine of some eggs cooking on a waffle iron and my creative wheels started turning. It never occurred to me that eggs could be cooked in a waffle iron.

Not only does this make a majorly delicious meal, but you can freeze these and warm them in the toaster like you can with regular waffles! These are great for those eating low carb (which I am at the moment), but I promise, they do not have a “low-carb” taste or texture. The flavor is incredible.

I can promise you one thing. These were so good, I will be creating many, many more renditions of these savory waffles. In fact, when I have enough of these recipes, they will have their own category in my breakfast section. Yes, they are that good. You’ll see!

  1. Seriously, can I use a regular pan to cook this??? really? Do I use just one side of the waffle maker? Seriously????

      Lucy – I’m not sure what you mean. A waffle iron cooks both side of a waffle at the same time. I mean, all you have to do is make a regular omelet using these ingredients. Scramble them in a pan and make the omelet like you would any omelet.
