I am notorious for doing about a billion things at once, anyone else with me?

Imagine this, I decide I want eggs for breakfast; as they are busy sizzling in the pan, I realize I have a few extra minutes while they cook, so I rush to change a load of laundry and I come back to a stuck to the pan, overcooked, egg hockey puck. Maybe you prefer your eggs like that… not me.

We recently moved, and my husband realized how many kitchen gadgets I have. So now I am on a mission to prove to him how essential all of these gadgets are in my life. In my last post, I shared an unconventional way to use your toaster.

Today, I am sharing another use for your waffle iron, to prepare eggs! My waffle iron isn’t anything fancy, but it does automatically turns off as soon as it is done cooking. Do you know how long it takes to cook an egg? Approximately the same amount of time it takes to cook a waffle.  The only hard part about this is having to clean out those little tiny squares, be sure to pre-spray your waffle iron.

  1. Just crack your egg in your preheated and pre-sprayed waffle iron. You could also try this with a scrambled egg.
