I’m all about fast and easy breakfasts. But I still want to keep things healthy, so I sometimes find myself struggling with breakfast. If I could have dairy more regularly, I don’t think it would be so difficult. I mean, if you think about it, people eat/drink a LOT of dairy with breakfast. From cheese to milk and creamers, dairy just always seems to be an easy option for breakfast.
But a while back, I did a recipe for waffle omelets for my other blog. It had been a very long time since I had made them and I had forgotten how easy and convenient they can actually be.
If you make a big batch of these on the weekend, you can put them in the freezer for a later date. When you are ready to eat them, simply pop them in the toaster and then add your favorite toppings.
Now that I have a toaster oven (finally!), I may give these a go with cheese some morning. But they are actually really delicious without it too. I added tomatoes and avocado and a little fresh basil to go with the Italian Seasoning I added to the mix, and they turned out totally delicious and filling!!

- In a skillet, saute the onions and garlic with 2 tbsp. of the oil, then cool a bit so they won't cook the eggs when you combine them.
- Poor the onions and garlic into the eggs along with the Italian Seasoning and 2 tbsp. remaining oil and whisk to combine.
- Oil your waffle maker and pour in just enough egg mixture to cover the bottom of the wells. These puff up a lot during cooking so you don't want to put too much into each waffle well.
