A Dressed Up Waffle

Ingredients ~

One Frozen Waffle
Two Eggs
Two Strawberries
One Kiwi
Two tbsp Apple butter
A half of a teaspoon Vanilla Extract 
A Nip of Butter
A Pinch of Cinnamon 
One tbsp Apple Juice

The accessory to the dress up
One Cup Greek Style Fruit Yogurt
One 16 Ounce container Cool Whip
(not shown in the image above because I just thought of it)

For when you are craving things you really shouldn't eat, 
this is a fantastic way to put a healthy dress up on.

Poach the eggs by using a small but deep pan filled one third 
of the way with water. Bring the water to a boil. Crack the eggs 
and drop into the water. Partially cover the pan with a lid so 
that the steam can escape, preventing the water from overflowing. 
If you prefer your eggs poached soft as I do, let the eggs boil for 
three to four minutes. You can scoop these right out of the water 
with a slotted spoon.

Prepare the apple butter syrup, by spooning the apple butter
into a bowl that is microwave safe, add the vanilla, apple juice
cinnamon and butter. Place in the microwave for one minute
and stir.

Slice the fruit. 

Toast the waffle. 

Of course, now that I am writing all of this down, this breakfast
would not be complete without a creamy fruit dip. One cup fruit yogurt, 
Greek style, will be ultimately decadent. One 16 ounce container 
of Cool Whip. Whisk together. A little daub will do, refrigerate the
remaining dip, or freeze for another day.

Share with the one you love to love on.

  1. That sounds too delicious to be healthy! And I love how you walk us through it step by step and simply - because I always get lost when im cooking and i hate really complicated recipes. I really think i could make this one.
    Im looking forward to a change from my usual boring breakfasts...

  2. Thank you so very much, and yes it is easy and I like quick and easy as well. Toast the waffle last of course. It's marvelous and tasty. A healthy combination, as the sugars are mostly natural and the carbs in one waffle are small, then the protein in the eggs balances it all out so the uptake of sugars is slow. Let me know how you like it when you get around to making it! ~Isa
