Eggs are a staple in our kitchen. Whether it is for a quick breakfast of scrambled eggs or used in a recipe for baking, eggs are one of those ingredients I have to stock up on weekly.
Friday, October 12th is World Egg Day, a global celebration dedicated to eggs. My family will be celebrating with these Indian Spiced Egg and Hashbrown Waffles. Celebrate World Egg Day with your friends and family by enjoying your favourite egg dishes.
Indian Spiced Egg and Hashbrown Waffles
Eggs are a quick, easy, and affordable source of protein. Two large eggs provide 13g of protein. They are also packed with nutrients such as:
Omega-3 fats (in eggs that are labeled omega -3 eggs. The hens are fed flaxseed, which is a source of omega -3s)
Canadian egg farmers take great pride in providing exceptional care for their hens and producing eggs of the highest quality for Canadian families to enjoy. Canadian egg farmers are proud to provide Canadians with fresh, local eggs. Egg farmers in Canada all adhere to the same National Animal Care and food-safety programs, ensuring hens are always well cared for, and that your eggs are always clean and fresh.
Canadian eggs are produced in every province, including the Northwest Territories by more than 1,000 farm families. No matter where you purchase your eggs, they are from a local farmer. On average, eggs travel from the farm to the grocery store in less than a week. Canadian egg farms are family-run. Generations of family members work together to produce eggs for Canadians to enjoy.

I was recently gifted a waffle iron by my mother and wanted to go beyond just the basic carb heavy waffles for breakfast (although there is nothing wrong with that!). These egg and hashbrown waffles are a good balance of protein from the eggs and carbs from the potato. You can make this for the week, store in the refrigerator, and reheat for a quick weekday breakfast. Alternatively, you can also include this on the menu for a family brunch.
The Indian spices really take these egg and hashbrown waffles to the next level without being too overpowering. My 3 year old and almost 1 year old both approved, which is always a win!
1. Turn on waffle iron and pre-heat. Grate potatoes and squeeze out excess water with a paper towel.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, spices, green chilis, shredded potato, cilantro, and onion.
3. Spray waffle iron with oil. Scoop out approximately 1 cup over the waffle iron (this amount will vary depending on your waffle iron). Cook for 3-4 minutes, until waffle is brown. Serve immediately or let cool on plate and store in an airtight container for a quick weekday breakfast.
