Cheese and Egg Waffles

An Easy and Low Carb Chaffle Recipe!

Oh don’t you worry…I’m not going all keto or low carb over here, but it is nice to have a fun option to switch up your everyday breakfast! Chaffles are easy enough for your kids to make on their own, so you can get them out the door with a high protein breakfast in the morning. I’m excited to share this easy breakfast idea with you, as Chaffles have quickly become one of our favorites!

What Is A Chaffle?

Ok, yes, “Chaffle” is kind of a silly word, and I certainly didn’t invent them. But a chaffle is a waffle made from cheese and eggs. So ok, it’s not REALLY a waffle, but you do make them in a waffle iron…hence the crispy exterior and fluffy insides.

You don’t need flour or baking powder to make Chaffles, which is the whole point! And they’re just a fun and easy way to switch up an omelet or frittata.

Stack of Chaffles

Only 2 Base Recipe Ingredients!

Yep, like I said before only 2 ingredients: cheese and eggs! I’m going to share different variations on how to flavor chaffles below, but picky eaters might just be fine with eggs and cheese! You can use different types of cheeses, but I have found that either cheddar, mozzarella, or a cheddar blend work great, especially if you are going to season them, as they are mild and creamy cheeses that pair with lots of different flavors!

How To Make Chaffles

Making chaffles is SO easy. Here are the simple steps:

  1. In a bowl whisk together your egg and cheese.
  2. Season or add mix-ins and stir to combine.
  3. Heat your waffle maker and coat lightly with nonstick spray.
  4. Pour out a portion of the egg mixture into the hot waffle iron.
  5. Cook for 3 minutes or until golden!
