Like cashmere socks and manicures, breakfast in bed is one of those little luxuries that can make a lady feel extra-special. Get cooking!
2 frozen low-fat waffles
1 slice center-cut bacon or turkey bacon
1/3 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1/2 tsp. maple extract
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown)
2 tbsp. sugar-free pancake syrup
1 tsp. powdered sugar
Lightly toast waffles. Cook bacon until crispy, either in a skillet over medium heat or on a microwave-safe plate in the microwave. (See package for cook time.)
In a wide bowl, mix egg substitute, maple extract, and vanilla extract.
Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add butter and let it coat the bottom. Meanwhile, coat waffles on all sides with egg mixture. Cook waffles until golden brown, 3 - 4 minutes per side.
Plate waffles. Chop or crumble bacon, and sprinkle over waffles. Drizzle with syrup (or serve syrup on the side), sprinkle with powdered sugar, and enjoy!
