Also known as my new favorite way to eat eggs.
Let’s be honest here for a moment.
I’m pretty okay with just having plain old eggs. I could probably eat them every single day for breakfast.
But I’d miss my smoothie bowls too much.
So, let’s just say I could eat them at least once a day for the rest of my life. Especially when they are incorporated into recipes like this.
This is like the lazy mans version of an omelet. The “I just don’t want to have to flip the egg over to make sure it’s cooked all the way through” that comes with a tinge of dread. Do you understand that feeling? I do. I totally get that way with fried sandwiches. If it were a battle between cleaning an appliance – the panini press – or flipping a sandwich to cook both sides, I’m cleaning the appliance.
I feel the same way about quesadillas. I’ve often thought about purchasing one of those quesadilla makers for that sole reason. But then I talk myself out of the $20 price tag because it’s not a necessary purchase. But a panini press is. And so is a waffle maker. For making these omelets, duh.
But really, this way of cooking omelets is super easy and the flavor combinations are endless. I mean, could you imagine a ham and egg version? Or an eggs Florentine style? Ugh. I’m getting hungry just thinking about them.
Southwest Omelet Waffle
- 6 eggs
- 1/2 c frozen corn
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp cumin
- optional toppings: shredded cheddar cheese, salsa, guacamole, plain Greek yogurt
Heat your waffle iron and spray it with a non-stick cooking spray.
In a bowl, whisk together the egg and spices. Add the corn and mix until thoroughly combined.
Scoop out mixture and put in waffle maker. The amount will depend on the size of your waffle maker. I used a small, heart-shaped style, which required about 1/3 cup, but if you use a Belgium waffle maker, it may require more. Just make sure you don’t overfill it – or you’ll really have a mess!
When eggs are cooked thoroughly, remove from waffle maker and top with desired toppings. And then serve!
FREEZER FRIENDLY – These can easily be frozen and then heated up in either a toaster oven or a microwave for a quick weekday breakfast.
…. Or if you find yourself even lazier than before.
