Make more use of your waffle maker and try these nutritious, delicious omelette ideas that work for pretty much any meal occasion.

When it comes to breakfast, omelettes are a classic choice, offering a delightful combination of fluffy eggs and a medley of fillings. But what if we told you that you can make omelettes even better by using a waffle maker? Yes, you read it right. Making an omelette in a waffle maker is a game-changer, and we're here to guide you through this delicious journey.
What You'll Need:
  • Eggs (typically 2-4, depending on your preference)
  • Fillings of your choice (cheese, vegetables, ham, bacon, etc.)
  • Cooking spray or a little butter
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning
  • Optional: herbs, spices, or hot sauce for added flavour
Steps to Waffle Maker Omelette Perfection:
  1. Preheat your waffle maker
    Start by preheating your waffle maker to a medium-high heat setting. Some waffle makers have adjustable temperature controls, so choose a setting that's roughly equivalent to medium-high.
  2. Beat the eggs
    While the waffle maker is heating up, crack your eggs into a bowl. Whisk them until they're well mixed, and you see a light, uniform consistency.
  3. Season the eggs
    Season your beaten eggs with a pinch of salt and a dash of pepper. You can also add herbs or spices for extra flavour. This is where you can get creative; it's your omelette, after all!
  4. Grease the waffle maker
    Just like when making regular waffles, use cooking spray or a bit of butter to grease the waffle maker's plates. This will prevent your omelette from sticking.
  5. Pour in the eggs
    Carefully pour the seasoned beaten eggs onto the preheated waffle maker, making sure they spread evenly across the plates.
  6. Add your favourite fillings
    Now, it's time to add your chosen fillings. Sprinkle cheese, vegetables, ham, bacon, or any other favourites directly onto the eggs. Don't overload; just enough to cover the eggs evenly. By freestyling your fillings, you’ll never waste another veggie again!
  7. Close and cook
    Gently close the waffle maker and let the magic happen. Cooking times may vary, but most omelettes are ready in about 5-7 minutes. Keep an eye on it until it's lightly golden and not runny.
  8. Carefully remove and enjoy
    Open the waffle maker, and your omelette should easily slide out. Plate it, fold it in half if desired, and savour the crispy edges and the fluffy, flavourful interior.
Tips and Tricks:
  • Customise your omelette with your favourite ingredients (we’ve also added some inspirations below)
  • Don't overfill your omelette; it can be challenging to cook through
  • Experiment with different cheeses and seasoning for variety
  • A little extra cooking spray can help with preventing sticking
Making an omelette in a waffle maker is a fun and convenient twist on a classic breakfast favourite. In fact, it’s so easy why limit making omelettes to just breakfast? They make a quick and convenient meal any time of the day. So, break out your waffle maker and make every meal egg-stra special.
