Oatmeal Pecan Waffles (or Pancakes)
Instructions
  1. Preheat waffle iron.
  2. Combine flour, oats, baking powder, sugar, and pecans in a large bowl.
  3. Combine egg yolks, milk, and vegetable oil in a separate bowl, and mix well.
  4. Add liquid mixture to the dry ingredients, and stir together.  Do not overmix; mixture should be a bit lumpy.
  5. Whip egg whites to medium peaks.  Gently fold egg whites into batter (for pancakes, see note below).
  6. Pour batter into preheated waffle iron, and cook until the waffle iron light signals it’s done or steam stops coming out of the iron.  (A waffle is perfect when it is crisp and well-browned on the outside with a moist, light, airy and fluffy inside.)  (Or make pancakes.)
  7. Add fresh fruit and a light dusting of powdered sugar to each waffle, and serve.

Italian Sausage Frittata
Instructions
  1. Preheat the broiler. Cut the sausage into 1/2-inch slices.
  2. Heat the oil in a medium, ovenproof, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the potatoes and sauté 3 minutes. Add the sausage, onion, and spinach and sauté 3 minutes, stirring several times. Add the mushrooms and garlic. Continue to cook 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, whish the whole eggs, egg whites, and milk together. Tear the basil into small pieces and add to the egg mixture along with the black pepper.
  4. Pour egg mixture into the skillet and gently stir vegetables to make sure the egg mixture spreads throughout the pan. Press the sausage and vegetables into the egg mixture. Turn the heat to low and cook 10 minutes. Frittata will be mostly cooked through.
  5. Place the frittata under the broiler for 1 to 2 minutes to brown. Watch to make sure the top doesn’t brown too much.
  6. To serve, loosen frittata around edges, cut in half, and slip each half onto an individual plate.
