Tips on Making Our IHOP Waffle Recipe

Another great addition to your breakfast menu would be these IHOP pancakes with sunny side-up eggs and sausages. Yum!

How To Make Fluffy Scrambled Eggs Like IHOP

If you’re eating scrambled eggs in IHOP, you should know that they don’t actually use real eggs in their cooking. Instead, IHOP scrambled eggs are made of egg substitutes. While we may not truly know what goes into the food we eat outside, we’ll always know that our homemade food is made with authentic, fresh ingredients. That’s the beauty of cooking on your own!

We’re adding heavy cream to our egg mixture to make it rich and creamy. Another secret to making the best scrambled eggs is aggressively whisking them until no egg whites can be seen. This incorporates air as you whisk, ensuring fluffy scrambled eggs with a beautiful yellow color. Lastly, ensure that the heat is set to low when you cook them to allow the curds to form slowly and gently without overcooking them.  

For more breakfast ideas, we have an array of scrambled egg recipes you can always whip up! Otherwise, for more delicious items on the IHOP menu that you can easily make at home, we recommend making IHOP Fiesta Burrito with stuffed beef and salsa.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do scrambled eggs last?

Scrambled eggs last up to 4 days in the fridge, granted you’ve placed them in airtight containers. This can also help you make breakfast ahead of time. To reheat them, all you have to do is either heat them in a frying pan until they have warmed through, or microwave your scrambled eggs for 30 to 60 seconds.

How long do these IHOP waffles last?

A waffle’s shelf life depends on how you store them. To do that, first, you must freeze the waffles directly by lining them in a baking sheet and freezing them for a few hours until stiff. Then, transfer them in airtight containers, which will last you 3 days in the fridge or 3 months in the freezer.

My waffles are turning out soggy. How to make crispy ones like that of IHOP waffle recipe?

First, always ensure that your waffle maker is hot before using it. This allows the waffles to cook immediately the moment the batter hits the pan. Heat your waffle iron for 5 minutes to ensure a crisp, golden-brown exterior. Also, you can try baking them in the oven. Preheat your oven to 250 degrees F, and directly place your cooked waffle on the metal racks. Bake for 5 minutes, allowing the steam to escape which lessens the chances of a soggy breakfast.
