Waffle-Maker Fritatta


I tried it! Using my waffle maker for eggs that were deliciously fluffy, veggie and cheese laden, and piping hot.

This was not my idea -- I saw it this past Wednesday morning on a segment of the Today Show. I am so glad I saw it because I was about to toss my waffle maker for lack of versatility. It seemed to take up too much space while lacking versatility. I'm kind of just over one-purpose gadgets (except for you, coffee maker).

Now I know my waffle maker is a secret multi-purpose gadget! I'm so excited, and so is the waffle maker since he won't end up on the curb in this week's trash pick up.


Ingredients:
2 large eggs, beaten together with 1 T. water and a pinch of salt
1/2 cup of cooked veggies of choice (or well diced raw veggies)
2 big tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
Non-stick spray 

Directions: preheat waffle maker (I used setting 4) then spray the top and bottom with non stick coating. Meanwhile, whisk together the eggs, veggies, and cheese. Pour evenly over the waffle pan and move the veggies around if they all landed in one spot. Close the top gently and don't turn it over, just let it cook an both sides. After 3-4 minutes you've got a wonderful, quick Fritatta to enjoy.

  1. That is a clever idea, indeed. I agree that a waffle maker seems very much like a single use object. I wonder what else you could make in it? Do you think you could mould vegetable patties, for instance?

  2. Sarah, I bet that veggie patties would work in the waffle maker! They'd just need a binder such as egg and some flour, I would guess... Worth trying, and let me know how it turns out!
