Apple Spice Waffles

We are a house divided when it comes to favorite breakfast foods. My husband likes French toast, my son, pancakes, but I am a huge fan of waffles. I love how the little pockets hold just the right amount of maple syrup, the crispy outside and the soft inside.

Since it's apple season here I wanted to use them in waffles and I found this recipe on the Taste of Home website. I had Honeycrisp on hand and I cut them in 1/4 inch pieces.

I added some maple sugar to the dry ingredients, if you can't get your hands on any you could add some brown sugar or just leave it out. 


To the wet ingredients I squeezed in a bit of vanilla bean paste extract. My milk was really cold and it kind of partially re-solidified the melted butter but it still worked out okay. 


I made two batches, first in my round Belgian waffle maker, they went too quick to get photos of.  The second batch I made in a standard iron.  Either way, I like to use a large cookie scoop to ensure that I get the same size waffles every time.

I served them with slices of apple, real maple syrup and butter.  They'd also be fantastic with apple butter or maple cream. Thank you so much to Jane S. for sharing her amazing recipe!

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time!

Lemon Pizzelles

  One of the first cookies I can remember eating is a pizzelle, and I'm still a huge fan today.  Even though you need a special iron to make them, the rest of it is really so simple. This time around I took the basic pizzelle recipe and instead of vanilla or anise, I used Adams lemon extract. I also used some of their yellow food coloring to distinguish them from my regular pizzelle.
