Omelet- Hash Brown Waffles

Thank-you to the Iowa Egg Council  for sponsoring this post. 

This past summer, my almost 9-year-old has taken an interest in cooking!  It is so fun, and almost a little relaxing to sit at the kitchen table and instruct and monitor him while he cooks us food!  He loves making cookies, muffins, scrambled eggs, and he has also gotten into breakfast meal prep!

These omelet hashbrown waffles are super flavorful and crispy after you toast them! I added my favorite omelet flavors to these waffles, but feel free to use this recipe as a canvas for YOUR favorite omelet flavors!

These waffles don’t have any grain in them, rather they are made just from eggs, omelet toppings, and hash brown potatoes.  These waffles will stay fresh in the fridge for 5 days and you can also freeze them.  All you need to do is pop these waffles in the toaster to heat and crisp them up before school.  These waffles also make a delicious after school snack or a quick dinner before practice!

Eggs are a great way to start the day and make excellent dinner for people of all ages!  Did you know that eggs are a nutritional powerhouse?  An egg is basically a multi-vitamin in a shell!  Eggs are beneficial for muscle and brain health. And now that many kids are going to school online this year, it is also important to know that eggs contain, Lutein and zeaxanthin found in egg yolks that can help protect your eyes from harmful blue light.   Eggs are super healthy, and I am thankful that all three of my sons love them!

These waffles are super easy!  All you need is:

A waffle iron

Cooking spray

10 eggs

2 cups of frozen hash brown potatoes

Your favorite omelet toppings: ham, cheese, green onions, vegetables, and seasonings.

And that’s it!

Did you know that if you served your family eggs today it’s likely that the egg came from Iowa?  Iowa is the #1 egg-producing state in the United States, producing 1 out of every 6 eggs!
