This recipe makes sweet or savory egg-based ‘waffles’ that are similar to an omelet made in a waffle maker. They’re the perfect grab-and-go and fit between two slices of toast for an easy sandwich or use in chicken and waffles for a delicious low carb breakfast!

Ingredients and Variations

EGGS: Choose large-sized eggs for a super fluffy interior and a crispy exterior. For a more protein-based egg waffle, used a container of only egg whites.

VEGGIES: Diced red bell peppers give egg waffles a little color and crunch, but get creative with other mix-ins like diced mushrooms, sliced, black olives, chopped spinach, sliced green onions, green chilis, or jalapenos.

CHOOSE YOUR CHEESES: Cheddar, mozzarella, Monterey jack, even Mexican cotija can be mixed into the egg waffle batter. The cheese adds flavor to the eggs and makes the outside extra crispy!

SEASONINGS: Stir in a seasoning blend like taco, chili, Cajun, or keep it simple with just salt and pepper. Or, whisk in a splash of hot sauce or salsa.

TOPPINGS: Just like any omelet, egg waffles are delish with a scoop of sour cream, guacamole, or salsa.

Be sure to keep waffles warm in a preheated oven.

How to Store Egg Waffles

For best results, store egg waffles between sheets of parchment paper in a zippered bag in the refrigerator up to 3 days. Simply reheat them by popping them in the toaster. Freeze them between sheets of parchment paper in a zippered bag with the date labeled on the outside and they’ll keep about 4 weeks. They can be reheated from frozen in the toaster!
