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!!

- 6 large eggs
- 1/2 small yellow onion, chopped
- 2 medium garlic cloves, minced
- 4 tbsp. oil, divided + more in a spray bottle for your waffle maker
- 1 tsp. dried Italian Seasoning (an herb mix found in any spice aisle)
- toppings of your choosing such as cheese, tomatoes, avocados or anything else you would enjoy on an omelet
- Crack your eggs into a medium bowl, whisk lightly and set aside.
- 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.
Cook to the directions of your waffle maker until they are fulling cooked through.
Remove from the waffle maker and transfer to a plate. Add your favorite toppings and serve.
