You know, for kids!
As usual, recipe up front, babbling about it below:
- waffle maker
- 10 eggs
- 1 lbs breakfast sausage Other ground meats could be substituted for different tastes/textures
- 2 tsp beef gelatin Optional. Improves texture
- Blend eggs and sausage together until the mixture is a smooth batter.
- Cook, 1/2 cup at a time, in a waffle maker on its highest setting.
- Remove finished waffles to an oven on 200˚ F to keep warm until ready to serve.
Keto Maple-flavored Syrup
- 1 tsp xanthan gum
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 cups water
- 2/3 cups erythritol/stevia granulated sweetener (I prefer the Pyure brand) or your preferred low-carb sweetener
- 1 tbsp maple extract other extracts, such as vanilla, may be used as well
- 1 pinch salt
- Whisk xanthan gum into 1/4 cup water and set aside.
- Whisk sweetener and salt into 2 cups water in a small saucepan.
- Heat syrup mixture until sweetener is dissolved, then remove from heat.
- Whisk in maple or other flavorings and xanthan gum mixture.
Somebody was asking me the other day (as they frequently do) what my kids are eating. I don’t hold them to a carnivore, or even a keto regime, but I’m not putting any more sugar in their lives than is good for them, either. We don’t want a blood sugar spike and drop to start our day off with a case of the grumpies. I give them their starches later in the day when their bodies are better able to use the sugars. (Update: I have since writing this taken my whole family heavily meat-based keto. The sugar isn’t happening around here anymore.)
I make these waffles on special occasions, or just the odd laid-back Saturday. Carb addicts and strict carnivores will want to skip the syrup and just eat these waffles as a bread. I like to
spread them absolutely slather them with butter, or maybe add some diced ham to the batter for extra flavor and protein. It’s a really forgiving recipe to play with. Enjoy!
