Easy and tasty! Toast them in the toaster when required to crisp them again. This recipe is in Low-Carbing Among Friends, Volume-1.  A very popular recipe in my section was the Ice Cream Custard on page 75.  All summer long it was a very popular recipe on my blog.  If you freeze it in a container that is deep like a regular ice cream tub, plus use the cream that sits on the shelf in cartons, it stays scoopable for a couple of days!  It is very easy to change the flavor and I give 4 variations - Chocolate, Chocolate Mint, Strawberry and Cappuccino.

8 oz regular cream cheese, softened (250 g)
4 eggs
3/4  cup Gluten-Free Bake Mix, (175 mL)
Sweetener to equal 4 tsp sugar (20 mL)
1 tsp baking powder (5 mL)
1/tsp baking soda (2 mL)
light-tasting olive oil

Preheat waffle maker for at least 15 minutes or according to directions. This is important to prevent waffles from sticking. They must come out easily.

In food processor or blender, process cream cheese, eggs, Gluten-Free Bake Mix, sweetener 
(if using), baking powder and baking soda, scraping sides occasionally.

Liberally brush inside forms with olive oil before placing 3 tbsp (45 mL) of batter on each form.  Spread the batter to all the corners of the waffle iron form. Close lid, set the oven timer and cook for 3 minutes.  Don’t open the lid until it is time.

Helpful Hints:  Calories will be higher due to olive oil used to brush insides of the waffle maker. Use in place of bread with eggs and bacon or spread with sweetened spreadable cream cheese or use low-carb syrup. Lots of ideas - even strawberry sauce or blueberry sauce and topped with whipped cream or creamy, whipped Creme Fraiche or delicious Ice Cream Custard.

Here is an easy Strawberry Sauce Recipe (I usually double the recipe):

Strawberry Sauce:
11/2 cups frozen, unsweetened strawberries (375 mL)
Liquid sweetener to equal 1/4 cup sugar (50 mL)
3 tbsp water (45 mL)

In saucepan over medium heat, combine strawberries, liquid sweetener and water.  Bring to boiling.  Using a potato masher, mash strawberries.  Cook, stirring until sauce thickens a bit.
