Recipes: Greek Omelette Waffles

In the morning, there’s nothing more inviting than the warm smell of freshly cooked breakfast. Especially eggs.

One of the most delicious ways to eat eggs in the morning is in an omelette—a scrumptious egg disk stuffed with vegetables and meats. Unfortunately, omelettes are often packed with too many unhealthy ingredients, resulting in a meal that LOOKS healthy but really isn’t.

Today’s Greek omelette is made into a waffle shape that’s easy to eat, even when you’re out of the house! The best part? It’s only 279 calories—nearly half the amount you’d find in a normal omelette! You can even substitute in other veggies to fit your taste without sacrificing any nutritional value.

Let’s get to it!
