Arugula Eggs Benedict with Herbed Waffles


i received free samples of breton gluten free original with flax crackers and breton gluten free herb and garlic crackers from dare foods incorporated mentioned in this post. by posting this recipe i am entering a recipe contest sponsored by dare foods incorporated and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. i was not compensated for my time.

just a friendly reminder to you daddies out there... sunday is mother's day!

you have two days to go out and buy the women who birthed your children something. or at least buy the ingredients listed at the bottom of this page.

(and this is truly a friendly psa as opposed to an excessive hint to my husband. we get to be at a tulip festival on mother's day! i'm super excited...)

wednesday i posted these zucchini fritters made with breton gluten-free herb and garlic crackers. i really loved how well the herb and garlic flavor came through, so i didn't stop there.

i couldn't resist making something that would be perfect for mother's day.

these waffles use the crackers, finely ground once again. they have a delightful savory flavor without being too overpowering. and almond flour adds a dose of protein to a typically high carb treat.

the whole plate, while just barely time-consuming (mother's day is only once a year, people) is really simple but looks super impressive. mom will be so proud!

ps. if you're not a daddy, you can still make this for someone you love.... they'll be proud of you too!
