These low-carb green waffles are perfect for St. Patrick’s Day or any day that you want to pack in 2 cups of spinach — without the taste of spinach — by breakfast. They’re also great for making waffle egg sandwiches; just throw them in the toaster to firm them up a bit! Because they freeze so well, I typically double the batch and freeze the extra waffles for later.
