Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. This looks awesome!! Just what I’d be craving after a grok workout…

  2. Yeah Denver! That sammie looks delish – may just have to break out the waffle iron.

  10. Well I woke up eagerly to make my waffle bread. Uh I don’t think it worked quite as well for me, haha. I’m still trying to chisel the mixture off of my waffle iron. I may try again using coconut oil as the grease as opposed to butter; because it won’t come off. I sort of ate my breakfast standing at the waffle iron picking off flakes.
    If the author of the video has any other advice on how he achieved this I would be happy to hear. He made it look so easy =)

  11. Hello everyone,

    Thanks for the kind replies. I can tell you all, it really is as amazing as it looks- One of those perfect sweet-savory blends that makes for a party in your mouth.

    Mia- make sure you are buttering that waffle iron up very well, and coconut oil would be fine too! You can never include too much of either!

    Another update for anyone interested, I have made the recipe again almost every morning this week with a few slight variations- One morning I skipped the blueberries and had an avocado-bacon-banana-almond butter sandwich (ridiculous good!) and another morning I made the original recipe, but included an over-medium fried egg as well!

    Like I said, this is an infinitely customizable recipe concept!

  12. Great job! I was particularly impressed that your waffle didn’t crumble everywhere. I’m giving it a whirl tomorrow.

  13. Can’t wait to try this even though I don’t have a waffle maker.

  14. I made this just now and it was fantastic! I used strawberries, almond butter and bacon. I don’t own a waffle iron so I made the batter into crepes. Had to eat with a fork and knife, but its soooo good!

  15. Yummy!

  16. I want it O_o This is years late, but i’ll mention anyway that the fruit isn’t the only thing with carbs in there. Nut butter and coconut flour will up that amount a decent bit. That said, looks delicious.
