February is #nationalhotbreakfastmonth! So my friend Zach Donohue came over, and we made some Savory Waffles & Avocado Salad!
We chose this dinner because, well, who doesn’t like waffles?!
As athletes we need to cover all the bases in our diets, and this meal has: carbs & protein (in the waffles), as well as good fat from the avocado salad!
Here’s what you’ll need:
Bacon cheddar waffles:
-1 lb cooked bacon, chopped
-1 to 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
-2 cups milk and 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar (stirred)
1/2 cup butter (melted)
1/2 tsp vanilla (optional)
-2 cups AP flour
-2 tsp baking powder
-1 tsp baking soda
-1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
In a large bowl, add all the wet ingredients and mix well. In a separate smaller bowl mix all the dry ingredients.
Gently mix the dry ingredients into the wet.
Once the batter is thoroughly combined, fold in the chopped bacon, cheddar, and chives.
A huge thank you to Breville Canada for sending me the new Smart Waffle Pro! I cooked the waffles using the Buttermilk setting (see video).
-3 avocados, cubed
-2 mangos, cubed
-1/4 red onion, minced
-1 jalapeño, seeded and minced
-1 tomato, cubed
-Juice of one lime
-Salt and pepper TT (to taste)
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and gently fold together, as not to mash the avocado.
