Turkey, Egg, And Vegetable Waffles With Avocado And Salsa

Egg And Vegetable Waffles With Avocado

If you’ve been connected with me through social media for any length of time, or you have followed this blog since I launched it earlier this year, you probably know that we have been having quite a bit of fun playing with our waffle iron and experimenting with what foods and recipes will work and will not work in the waffle iron — and we’ve discovered several new delicious waffle recipes!

We’ve made all sorts of interesting waffles, and we’ve only crossed a tiny amount of the recipes we want to try off our list. So far we’ve made:

And today we made Turkey, Egg, And Vegetable Waffles With Avocado And Salsa.

Waffles made of eggs, turkey, and vegetables

I had been wanting to try eggs in the waffle iron for a while, and this breakfast experiment was a definite success. Chopping up the vegetables — spinach, onion, tomato, and red bell pepper — and turkey, and stirring them into the beaten eggs before pouring the egg mixture into the waffle iron worked absolutely beautifully.

Smashed avocado

While the eggs and veggies baked in the waffle iron, I smashed the avocado with a little bit of lemon and some salt and pepper, to go along with the salsa as an egg waffle topping.

Scrumptious. Absolutely scrumptious. The eggs had structure and a light and fluffy texture, the spicy turkey added a rich flavor, and the veggies were cooked just enough and still had some crunch to them.
