I make all kinds of bread substitutes like oopsie rolls, but this one is really interesting. Chaffles! Its just eggs and cheese cooked in a waffle maker! Great for not only breakfast sandwiches, but any kind of sandwich. Or, don’t make a sandwich! Just top with eggs and your favorite protein. I see Eggs Benedict in my future! I had a beef brisket sandwich, a salami sandwich and of course, breakfast sandwiches.
Here’s the basic recipe:
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup of grated cheese
If you have a regular waffle maker that makes 4 waffles, double the recipe to fit the whole waffle maker plate. Crack the eggs in a bowl and whisk. Add the cheese (I used cheddar and I also used a provolone/mozzarella mix) and mix together. You can salt and pepper to it, add herbs, etc, etc. Make sure you spread the cheese around a bit. Don’t let it clump in the middle. You can also add a little more cheese directly to the waffle maker to give you a little more crisp waffle. Check out the pics below.
In the above chaffle I used extra provolone cheese on the top and the bottom of the chaffle to give it a crispier texture.

Above is a cheddar cheese chaffle. I put a tablespoon of almond flour in this one to make it more waffle like. To me, it wasn’t worth the carbs!
Above is a breakfast sandwich. Chaffles make an excellent “bread” for sandwiches. I use cloud bread (oopsie rolls) and other no gluten, no grains breads, and chaffles are a good, sturdy sandwich bread.
If you make a lot of chaffles and want to reheat, I suggest 5 seconds in the micro, then toast in your toaster. You can go right to the toaster if you want.
