Yes, it’s time to pull out the waffle maker once again to make some omelets. Do you get that omelet craving on some mornings, but just don’t have the time to make them. Not only is it about finding the time to make them, but there’s also the issue of the flip. You know what I’m talking about….trying to neatly fold and flip, or roll rather, that nicely stuffed egg onto a plate without having it fall apart or making one huge mess. Well, I thought since I have been experimenting with my waffle maker, I could try to make an omelet. I will admit my first attempt wasn’t so pretty. I made the mistake of leaving the waffle maker on too high and well…..it actually spit at me. The eggs oozed and spewed out of the sides all the while making this obscene hissing noise. But it did taste good. The next attempt was a tasty success with bacon, ham and some cheese all cooked in fluffy eggs. This also makes a great breakfast for dinner kind of meal. I’m all for those as well.
Here’s what you need:
*3 eggs; This made 2 omelets. Depending the size of your waffle maker you may have to use 1 less egg.
*2 slices of bacon cooked crisp
*ham, chopped; to taste
*1/4 C. shredded cheese; I used cheddar
*salt and pepper to taste
*non stick cooking spray
Preheat the waffle maker on the lowest setting and spray with the non stick spray. Coating the waffle maker with no stick spray is important because the eggs will stick if you do not do this step.
In a small bowl, crack in the eggs and whisk for a few seconds. Add in all of the ingredients and whisk a little more.
Pour the egg mixture on to the waffle maker.
Close the lid and cook for about 2 minutes or more until eggs are done.
Carefully remove the waffle omelets on to plates and serve.
