The Local Dish with Brenda Murphy and Beaver Dam Piggly Wiggly

THE LOCAL DISH with Beaver Dam  Piggly Wiggly


This is a great recipe for large family get together. Each person writes their name on a quart-size Ziploc® freezer bag with permanent marker. Crack 2 eggs (large or extra-large) into the bag. Shake to combine. Put out a variety of ingredients such as: cheeses, ham, onion, green pepper, mushrooms, tomato, hash browns, salsa, etc.  Each person adds prepared ingredients of choice to their bag and shakes it. Compress air from bag and zip it up. Place bags into rolling, boiling water for exactly 13 minutes. You can cook 6-8 omelets in a large pot. For more omelets, use a second pot of boiling water. Open the bags and the omelet will roll out easily.



3 eggs                                                                         1/8 c. shredded cheddar cheese

1/8 c. favorite omelet fillings*                                      Salt and pepper

Nonstick cooking spray

Whisk eggs and filling ingredients together until well blended. Coat the top and bottom of iron with nonstick cooking spray and preheat waffle iron. Add egg mixture and close the lid. Cook until eggs are cooked to desired consistency-mine took about 4 minutes. Carefully remove with tongs or fork.*Use diced peppers, onion, mushrooms, bacon bits, black olives, and/or shredded cheese of your choice



1 tube Pillsbury “GRANDS: biscuits*              Rolling pin                   Cutting board

You can make this recipe one of two ways:

  1. Flatten each biscuit with rolling pin and place, one at a time, in your waffle iron. Cook 1-2 minutes and remove from iron.
  2. Place one biscuit in each of the sections of waffle iron. Cook until golden, about 1-2 minutes.

Serve warm. *(Any brand of biscuits will work).



Cooking Spray                                                1 (14 oz.) can cinnamon roll dough

Preheat waffle iron according to manufactures’ instructions. Spray waffle iron with cooking spray. Place one cinnamon roll slice in each section of waffle iron, close the lid and cook until rolls are golden and cooked through, about 4-5 minutes. Repeat with remaining dough. Heat icing (included with rolls) in microwave and drizzle over top.





1 pkg. frozen puff pastry, thawed


Cinnamon sugar                                  Powdered sugar                     Jam/Jelly

Lemon Curd                                        Hazelnut Spread (Nuetella)

Thaw puff pastry on cutting board. Trim to fit your waffle iron or cut into 1 ½” strips. Place in preheated waffle iron, close lid and cook for about 3-4 minutes. Remove from iron with tongs or fork; sprinkle with cinnamon sugar or toppings of your choice.



4 c. whole wheat flour                         2 c. all-purpose flour               1 c. toasted wheat germ

1 c. toasted oat bran                           1 c. buttermilk blend                3 Tbsp. baking powder

2 tsp. baking soda                               1 tsp. salt


2 eggs                                                 1 c. water                                2 Tbsp. vegetable oil

2 Tbsp. honey

In large bowl, combine first eight ingredients. Store in airtight container in refrigerator for up to 6 months. Yield: 8 ½ c. mix (about 4 batches). To prepare waffles: place 2 c. waffle mix in bowl. Combine eggs, water, oil & honey; stir into waffle mix just until moistened. Bake in preheated waffle iron according to manufacturers’ directions until golden brown. Yield: 5 (6”) waffles.

I like to add 2 tsp. ground cinnamon to the 2 c. waffle mix for a little additional flavor. You could substitute apple pie spice or pumpkin pie spice for cinnamon. Or use 1 ½ c. waffle mix plus ½ c. cocoa powder for chocolate waffles and top with mini chocolate chips or sprinkle into the batter before cooking.

These can also be frozen. Let cool after cooking; wrap in wax paper; place in gallon freezer bag. Remove from freezer; place in microwave for 45-60 seconds and you’ve got a great, easy breakfast!



1 pkg. frozen hash brown patties                                            Nonstick spray

Thaw hash brown patties. Press into bottom of waffle iron. (Trim to fit if necessary). Close lid and heat until cooked; about 6-8 minutes.        link to copy the Mother’s Day Coupon Booklet        link to copy the Mother’s Day Paper
