Simple Waffle Omelets – perfect for any meal!

We might as well just call these “Womelets” because that’s what keeps coming out of my mouth when I try to talk about Waffle Omelets. I’m excited to share this recipe idea with you, but I’m sorry for causing all of you to be in this tricky verbal situation.

The cool thing is that these Womelets (I’ve given up on  trying to say it correctly) really are fun to make and super tasty.

Here are some Waffle Omelet highlights:

  • You can make everyone’s Waffle Omelet to fit each person’s preferences.
  • These are super quick and simple to make.
  • You can make Waffle Omelets for a quick dinner when/if you forgot to thaw meat to prep for your meal.
  • You can prepare ingredients ahead of time and store them in the fridge to pull out and make Womelets at the spur of the moment.
  • These are inexpensive!

By the way, have I ever told you what a messy cook I am? Truly. If there are three people standing side by side putting together making food, you will be able to tell which cooking station was mine because of all the food that had been dripped, drizzled, slopped, and spilled in my area.

I am especially good at making a mess of these Womelets, as I often overestimate how much liquid to pour into the waffle iron. Out of the iron the egg mixture will spill, causing a huge mess of slime down the sides and all over the counter-top. Have I no shame?

In addition, you should see me try to take the Waffle Omelets out of the waffle iron without tearing them to bits. Notice, above, how I finally gave up and took a picture of the omelet directly in the waffle iron? It was better this way.

I finally figured out that if I use hot pads and pick the waffle iron up, then dump the omelet onto the plate, it actually comes out easily and pretty. How about that? No mess! (You’ll see below that it folded itself in half while being dumped, but it was the best I could do.)

I’ve finally learned that for my waffle iron, it takes somewhere between 1/2-3/4 cup of egg mixture to make one nice waffle omelet without spilling over.

Fill your mixture with any combination of meat, cheese, and chopped veggies that you like! I suggest mixing the eggs, milk, and salt in a bowl, then you can add your “fillings” as you make each individual waffle omelet so you can make it according to taste!

    Wuffins also work well! When it’s too hot to think about turning on the oven, you can make a small batch of muffins in the waffle maker without too much extra heat in the kitchen. Your womlets would work if you have an outside outlet too. :)

    I was having such a lousy Monday until I read this post. This is such a fun idea. We have a one-serving iron that makes a 5″ waffle. It’s small enough that my 4-year old can operate it (with Mama doing the scooping onto the plate, of course). He will get such a kick out of cooking everyone their own womlette.

    What a great way to spice up eggs! We eat a lot of eggs, cheap, good protein, etc.:) They do get boring though (especially for my poor husband who is rather limited in his breakfast options as certain foods ie oatmeal, bananas, apples, etc. have been really bothering him the past couple of years). This will be a great and fun recipe to add to our breakfast regime! Thanks again, Laura, you really have no idea how much your tips and recipes have helped our family:) God Bless!

    I love cooking extra firm sliced tofu in my waffle maker! It makes it crunchy without having to be deep fried.
