Sweet & Savory Grain Free Waffles
“And in the morning….I’m makin’ waffles!” . To be fair, this line MUST be said in your best “Donkey” voice, straight outta Shrek. I think Donkey would appreciate this hearty take on the humble waffle…my husband sure did! Who, by the way, can pretty much recreate Shrek as a one-man show in case you’re wondering.
I’m typically on team '“sweet” when it comes to waffles, but this one has a little bit of the best of both worlds - sweet AND savory. I was looking for a way to get some greens and proteins in as sort of a sneak attack, because let’s face it, not everyone wants turkey and greens for breakfast! And if it could be portable, well then that’s just a big ol’ plus. And if it could be meal-prepped, then that’s an extra big ol’ plus that makes me super happy!
For this recipe, the turkey sausage makes more than what the waffles call for. Unless you double your batch of batter, then add all the turkey sausage you want! This is what I ended up doing since I used it as a meal prep for two people this week (a regular batch of batter gives you 3 large waffles, doubling gives you 6).
But, if you decide you don’t want to double the batter, then stick the extra turkey sausage back for some breakfast tacos, salad topping or a fritatta later in the week!
TIP: While these are cooking, you will likely notice steam rising from the waffle maker toward the end of the cook cycle. This is ok! I let mine cook for at least 6 minutes before I lift the lid to check on it. When it’s golden brown, it’s done!
