Spinach & Cheddar Waffles


Breakfast for dinner doesn't have to be sweet when you have this savory recipe option.  Fresh spinach and grated cheddar cheese means it can be a quick weeknight meal everyone will enjoy.  Can you believe this is the first waffle maker I have owned? It was a hand me down and while it needed some work getting it cleaned up and re-seasoned, I can't imagine being without this versatile kitchen appliance. 

When I posted this picture on Instagram I asked if anyone thought it resembled a snowflake like I had, to which my scientist in training daughter pointed out, "Snowflakes have six points, not four because of the hydrogen bonds so hah". I stand corrected.
