Egg in a Waffle


eggs
butter
salt and pepper, to taste

Waffle:
1 pack                        MAYA Original Hotcake Mix 200 g
1                                  egg
2 tablespoons           vegetable oil
½ cup                         water

                                                           
            Prepare waffle. Beat egg slightly in a bowl; add in oil, water and hotcake mix. Stir just until slightly lumpy (do not over mix). Pour batter onto a pre-heated, slightly greased waffle maker. Cook until very light brown in color. Press a hole in the center of the waffle using a biscuit cutter or the rim of a glass.
            To assemble. Heat a skillet over medium-low heat and melt in the butter. When the butter is all spread out, place the waffle in the skillet and crack the egg straight into the center of the hole.
            Cook until the egg sets a bit on the bottom, approximately 30-45 seconds. Season the egg with salt and pepper. Let it cook until the yolk feels soft. If you want a more cooked egg, flip the waffle with a spatula to cook the other side.
NOTE: For a variation on the waffle, add 2 tablespoons of chopped parsley and ½ cup of finely chopped ham to the batter before cooking.
