Cheddar Zucchini Waffles

Savory Cheddar Zucchini WafflesFor the longest time, you couldn’t convince me to go savory for breakfast. I was all about the pancakes, smoothies, donuts… These days, I find myself learning to appreciate a good savory breakfast entree like these cheddar zucchini waffles. I was craving waffles a couple of weeks ago and decided to try a savory version this time around and I loved how they turned out! I’m thinking these will be the first of many savory breakfast dishes to appear on the blog. 😉 

Cheddar Zucchini WafflesMy favorite way to serve these tasty cheddar zucchini waffles with some sautéed spinach, fried egg, sliced avocado, and a drizzle of hot sauce. I stored the extra waffles in the freezer in a ziploc bag and reheated them throughout the week in the toaster oven. They were just as good as they were the day I made them!
