Looking for a savory waffle recipe? Skip the flour and make waffle omelets! Cook eggs and veggies on a waffle iron for a quick and easy breakfast.
I love waffles. I also love omelets. Both dishes can be a little bit of work to cook, though, and I usually save them for lazy weekend mornings. After making hash browns in my waffle maker, I decided I needed to give this little appliance more use. Cooking eggs to make an omelet is a great way to get more use of a waffle maker.
The first thing you need to make omelet waffles is an awesome waffle maker. I used to own a very large Belgian waffle maker and I hated it. It’d use up an entire recipe of batter and make one waffle. A few years ago I picked up this Oster Ceramic Waffle Maker and I love it! It makes perfect little waffles and it’s totally non-stick.
As much as I love my little waffle maker, I really want this Double Belgian Waffle Maker! It makes TWO WAFFLES at once! No more standing at the waffle maker all morning long.
My husband and I eat eggs with vegetables pretty much every morning. We are generally lazy and just pre-chop onions and peppers on Sunday for the week. But sometimes I’ll throw in zucchini or mushrooms.
This recipe is great for using up leftover veggies like onions and mushrooms. Feel free to use any veggies you want just make sure to chop them in to small bites. You could also saute them a little to start them cooking and then mix them in with the eggs.
When cooking the omelet in the waffle maker, ignore the timer on the maker. You want to cook until the eggs are set. I like my eggs on the firm side but my husband likes them a little softer so cook them to how you prefer them.
Once the omelet is cooked, remove from the waffle iron (check out these COOL TONGS!) and serve hot with some more veggies. Cheese may also be a great topping. Just add a little shredded cheese to the hot omelet and allow it to melt before eating.
