Low Carb Waffles
4 Large Eggs
2 Tablespoons Heavy Cream
3 Tablespoons Water
2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
4 Packets Splenda or 8 Drops Liquid Splenda
2.5 ounces Plain Pork Rind Crumbs
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
2 Tablespoons Melted Butter
In a medium bowl, beat the eggs and then add the cream, water and vanilla extract; beat some more. Mix the Splenda packets (if not using liquid) with the cinnamon and pork rind crumbs and add to the egg mixture. Mix well and set aside for 5 minutes. Stir and check the consistency. The mixture should be thick, but not too thick. If it is too thick, add just a little bit of water at a time until it is thinner. Stir in the melted butter.
Pour 1/3 cup batter (or the amount recommended by the manufacturer of your waffle iron) onto a preheated iron. Close and bake.

I made a couple of batches of these. I let them cool completely on a wire rack, and then I placed them into a ziplock freezer bag and froze them. When I want a couple, I just pulled them out of the freezer and pop them into the toaster. I took these to work one day for lunch and let some of my co-workers try them. Nobody could believe they were made with pork rinds. LOL!
