I don’t know about you, but I burnt myself out on hard boiled eggs a long time ago. I used to love them but now I’m kind of “MEH” at the thought of eating one as a snack unless it’s in a salad or on a sandwich. This became a real bummer because hard boiled eggs are such an easy, grab and go, zero SmartPoint, protein filled snack. Not ready to lose a go-to food that helps me stay within my Daily Smartpoints budget…UGH!!! So I set out to come up with a replacement. I’m happy to report, I’ve succeeded!
Last fall, the WW Studio in Fresno was a test market for the Dash Mini Waffle Iron, so I bought one. They were less than $15 and my plan was to use it with the WW Blueberry Muffin and Corn Muffin mixes. If you aren’t familiar with the WW Muffin mixes, they come in a single serving cup that you add water to and microwave. They are an awesome value with only 3 Smartpoints and 10 grams of protein and VERY tasty. The only issue is that I’m not a fan of eating a muffin with a fork out of a paper cup. Something about it just doesn’t appeal to me, so the mini waffle maker was the perfect solution and I’ve gotten lots of use out of it.
A friend suggested that I add an egg to the waffle mix along with the water so that it stretches out the batter, allowing for 3 mini waffles instead of just one for the same amount of Smartpoints. It worked……3 for the Smartpoints price of 1….I’ll take it!! Thank you, Stephanie!
This led me to start thinking about my egg dilemma…what if I just cracked the egg on the waffle iron? Turns out, if you spray the mini waffle maker with a little bit of cooking spray, it makes a perfect fried egg “waffle”! Yahhhhoooo…I’m excited about zero SmartPoint eggs again! Very delicious and they keep well in the refrigerator, so I make several at a time to always have on hand. Today was egg making day for the week and I started this post immediately after I finished!
When Darin saw them, he pointed out they would fit perfectly on an English muffin for an egg sandwich, one of his favs. It works out great…I make a batch about once a week for both of us. I eat them by themselves cold or warmed up (good both ways) and he can make a quick egg sandwich before he starts work in the mornings. He never made egg sandwiches on work days in the past because it took too long to get out the pan, etc., etc. This is super simple, quick and yummy!
I’m thinking this could also work on a traditional waffle iron if that’s what you have at your house??? If you try it, let me know!
If you’re interested in getting a mini one, WW is now selling the white Dash Mini Waffle Iron in the WW store for $12.95. They also have the Protein Corn Muffin Mix as well as the Buttermilk Protein Pancake Mix that I referenced above. The mixes are $4.50 each and delivered right to your door with free shipping on orders over $25! I added the link to the photo below. If you click the photo, it should take you directly to the WW Online Store. Yes, I know, I am becoming such a techy🤪
If you prefer the Dash Mini Waffle Iron in a color other than white, I found them on Amazon in 7 colors, including the red one, like mine. Just click the photo below and it should take you to them on Amazon. Hopefully I added the link properly!
So those are my two tips for today! Hope you find them helpful? I have a list of several other great food ideas I’ve tried in the last several weeks and I’m excited to share them with you!
