Hashbrown Waffles

Hashbrown Waffles

Hashbrown Waffles Recipe

Create the perfect morning meal! These Hashbrown Waffles are so yummy, and easy! Satisfy your morning cravings with this great healthy recipe.

INGREDIENTS

1 20-ounce package Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns
3 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar Cheese
1/4 cup fresh chopped chives, plus some for garnishing
Salt & pepper
Sour cream, for serving, if desired

INSTRUCTIONS

Heat waffle iron on the medium-high setting. Spray each side generously with non-stick cooking spray or brush with melted butter.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Stir in potatoes, cheese, chives and season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
Depending on the size of your waffle iron, scoop a layer of the potato mixture onto the surface (for the round waffle maker, I used about 1 cup of the mixture). Spread to about 1/2 inch from the edges and close the waffle iron. Cook for about 5 minutes, checking every few minutes to avoid burning. When the entire waffle is golden brown in color, carefully remove from the waffle iron with a fork or tongs.
*Tip: Turn your oven to the “warm” function and place finished waffles on a baking sheet in the oven to keep warm which the rest are cooking.

Cinnamon Toast

Cinnamon Toast

Cinnamon Toast

I created this delicious and Healthy Cinnamon Toast recipe after I finally found the time to make it! My goal with this new recipe series is to take naughty meals and make them skinny. I like to take something delicious that you can’t have everyday, like pizza or pancakes, and shave off calories and adding metabolism boosting ingredients to make it something you CAN have everyday.

Well hello! French toast needed to be made skinny, and this low calorie french toast recipe tastes amazing, too.

Cinnamon Toast Ingredients:

1 large Egg
1 Egg White
1/2 cup Almond Milk
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 tsp. Maple Syrup plus more for topping
3 slices Whole Wheat Sourdough Bread
1 tsp. Powdered Sugar

Steps:

Heat a griddle or large pan on medium and lightly coat with cooking spray.

In a pie pan or shallow bowl combine the egg, egg white, cinnamon, vanilla and maple syrup and whisk until all is combined. Then dip (one at a time) the bread into the egg mixture letting it soak in a little. Once each side is coated hold over the pie pan so that any excess will drip off and then place on your hot griddle.

Let each side cook until golden brown before flipping it about 3 minutes, DO NOT SQUISH you want them fluffy and delicious. Flip and repeat, once your french toast slice is done move to a plate and slice in half top with powdered sugar and serve with maple syrup
