If you use a lot of social media outlets, then you've probably seen the posts about all the things you can do with a waffle iron. So why not make a frittata in a waffle iron! A Frittaffle! It's easy and yummy! And you can certainly mix and match the ingredients here and add peppers, mushrooms, you name it!
2 C frozen shredded hashbrowns
1 C fresh spinach leaves, torn
8 slices bacon
1 green onion, sliced
1 C shredded cheese (I used Colby Jack)
Salt & pepper, to taste
Cook the bacon until crisp. Drain it on a paper towel and set it aside. Meanwhile, coat the bottom of a skillet with the vegetable oil. Heat the skillet to medium high heat. Spread the hashbrowns in a single layer in the skillet. Cook the hashbrowns (don't disturb them or stir) about 6 minutes before flipping them over to brown the other side. Cook the other side about 4-6 minutes or until they are browned.
Preheat your waffle iron. Whisk together the eggs and salt & pepper. Stir in the cooked hashbrowns, the bacon, the spinach, cheese, and green onion. Spray the waffle iron with nonstick spray. Pour 1/4 of the mixture in the center of the waffle iron. Cook the Frittaffles about 4-5 minutes or until they are browned. This makes four Frittaffles, so spray the iron again and cook the remaining three Frittaffles.
