Hi, my name is Reesa and I have an addiction to Waffles. Yes, it’s true.

Eggland's Best Egg Whites

It took a long time to realize that egg whites were the way to go in this recipe. They make your buttermilk waffles nice and crisp and fluffy!

I’ve been using the #1 branded egg in the U.S. – Eggland’s Best – for years. They’re such a convenient way to get fresh egg whites from EB eggs and the added nutrition boost is a plus too!

Eggland’s Best’s hens are fed a strictly controlled, proprietary, high-quality all-vegetarian diet, which results in a better tasting, more nutritious egg that stays fresher longer.

Eggland’s Best Egg Whites are a great source of vitamins D, B12, E, B5 and riboflavin. You’ll find 5g of protein and only 25 calories in each EB Egg White serving, making them a great source of your daily protein! And the American Heart Association Heart Check program has recognized and certified EB Egg Whites as a heart-healthy food!

So that’s why I love using Eggland’s Best Egg Whites in my Buttermilk Waffles Recipe!

The egg whites in the waffle batter make your waffles super fluffy and super crispy. And using Eggland’s Best Egg Whites makes it so convenient.

After you mix your waffle batter, let it rest for a few minutes. While it rests, heat up your waffle iron.

Once your waffle iron is ready, pour in about 1/3’rd a cup of the batter to completely cover your waffle iron.
