3) Preheat your waffle iron! When it’s ready (mine – an Oster Flip Belgian Waffle Maker with a ceramic coating – has a green light that says “ready!”) open it up and either spray the iron with your non-stick cooking spray (here are a few unique options: Avocado Oil Non Stick Cooking Spray, Coconut Oil Cooking Spray, or just good ol fashion PAM), or brush melted butter on the grate.

4) Pour your eggs into the waffle iron, and close the cover. *If you have a fancy flip waffle iron, go ahead and flip it. However you would normally cook waffles – follow the same procedures for these eggs!

6) TA-DA! Grab the eggs out of the waffle iron (they will be hot, you might need to use a fork or spatula) and place them right on your plate. You can top with whatever toppings you desire! We love ours topped with our Chipotle Pulled Pork on top!
