Introduction: The Wafflette / Wamlette

Are you the type of person who loves the traditional omlette, but always lacked the skills to flip the damned thing in the pan? Well this instructable is just for, but not only will we make an easy omlette, we'll add a little innovation with something you probably don't use very often: a waffle iron.

Step 1: Prepare

Okay so like any time you're gonna cook, you should get everything you need out first.

- Waffle Iron
The one I used was a somewhat modern electric, cast-iron one. Heats up nice and fast.

- Eggs
How many really depends on your waffle iron. For me, I had about 2 eggs for every waffle. But some of you may have those gargantuan round waffle irons that could feed a family. So anywhere between 1.5 and 4 eggs per waffle would be a good guess.

- Cooking Oil
I worship the invention of kitchen oil in a can. I used discount Stop&Shop veggie oil, but anything resembling that or PAM will do.

- Condiments
This is all up to you.

Step 2: Fire It Up!

So for starters, spray down your iron and plug it in (or however yours works).
Then, of course, we whip up our eggs, (and milk, if you want). Depending on your style, some people whip in some of the condiments in there, as well. Such as bacon bits, diced onions, whatever.
Then after about 5 minutes of heating, you carefully pour the mixture into one of the waffle "cells". Make sure the entirety of the cell is covered up, and don't worry if it starts to overflow into a cell next to it. If you're making more than one, just fill that one up too.
Now put the top of the iron down, and let the magic go! My eggs were a little aggressive and started to push the top up as it expanded. If you want to hold it shut, that's all up to you. If you do, it may add more heat to the top of it, making it more even with the bottom half.

(Bare with me, that I don't have pictures for these steps.)

Step 3: Finalize and Serve!

That's basically it!
When it looks like your egg is nearing its finish, unplug/turn off your iron so it doesn't burn the egg.
Use your fork to plop your wonderful Wafflette / Wamlette onto your plate and behold its weird beauty! Depending on your mixture, it may have come out a bit shriveled. (like mine). I'm not sure, but milk may help make it stay fluffy. But either way, pour a glass of OJ, get some bacon and enjoy your unique breakfast!

    I combined my eggs, havarti, bacon and bits of sausage and spinach, and topped it off with pear sauce and blueberry syrup.

    Odd combination

    Great wamlette

    You are nominated for the 601Contest: Breakfast! Congratulations!

    This is such a cool idea! I never would have thought this would work or taste so good!

    Yah, that would be great.... theyd caramlize in it really well. Depending on how long these take to cook, I might add them in a bit after it starts cooking.

    i guess BP is back with yet one more oil spill

    This is a really creative idea!! :D
    I can't wait to try it. I love the name Wamlett best though. lol.

    On a good day, I can make one in a pan, but I'd try this too.

    THIS IS BRILLIANT! I know what I'm having for breakfast tomorrow. I am so thoroughly excited, you can't even imagine...wafflette....wow.

    could you cook the bacon in the waffle iron too? toast? i'm thinking the possibilities are endless

    Wow! That looks delicious. Do you put syrup or anything on top of it just like you would with a regular waffle?

    Tee -hee -hee. What are eggs without syrup? :0)! salsa is for sure more healthy...but.. old habits die hard :0)
