I was recently gifted a waffle iron by my mother and wanted to go beyond just the basic carb-heavy waffles for breakfast (although there is nothing wrong with that!). These egg and hashbrown waffles are a good balance of protein from the eggs and carbs from the potato. You can make this for the week, store in the refrigerator, and reheat for a quick weekday breakfast. Alternatively, you can also include this on the menu for a family brunch.
The Indian spices really take these egg and hashbrown waffles to the next level without being too overpowering. My 3 year old and almost 1 year old both approved, which is always a win!
Eggs are a staple in our kitchen. Whether it is for a quick breakfast of scrambled eggs or used in a recipe for baking, eggs are one of those ingredients I have to stock up on weekly.
Indian Spiced Egg and Hashbrown Waffles
Eggs are a quick, easy, and affordable source of protein. Two large eggs provide 13g of protein. They are also packed with nutrients such as:
Omega-3 fats (in eggs that are labeled omega -3 eggs. The hens are fed flaxseed, which is a source of omega -3s)
