Waffle Iron Eggs

Waffle Iron Eggs from Weelicious



Rice in a rice cooker, beans in a pressure cooker, stew in a slow cooker and waffles in a waffle iron. I love making straightforward recipes using specialty cooking equipment. However when you spend money on a single-use kitchen appliance it can feel a bit limiting.

However, have you ever tried making Rice Cooker Mac and Cheese, Pressure Cooker Black Beans, Oatmeal in a Crock Pot or my new favorite, Waffle Iron Eggs? This recipe was a bit of a science experiment, resulting in me cracking several dozen eggs just to get the recipe right, but it was a ton of fun to do. I used both heart-shaped and Belgian waffle iron pans to ensure the recipe would work with different types of waffle makers and was both thrilled by and surprised with the results.

These Waffle Iron Eggs are incredibly light and airy -- crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. The eggs keep their shape, so you're able hold them just like you would a regular waffle, so they're really fun for little ones to eat -- and an especially good option if you have a new eater to whom you want to offer a protein boost.

For added flavor I like sprinkling some grated cheese (like cheddar, jack or Colby) to the egg mixture, but you can add diced veggies or even bacon.

    My 5-year old girls ate these up then asked for seconds! I made it a little bit sweet instead of savory (added a little vanilla and cinnamon to the egg/milk mixture, then topped the egg waffle with cream cheese mixed with a drop of vanilla and honey); but for myself I made it plain and topped it with salsa. Delicious! Thank you for coming up with a way to get more protein in the mornings!!

      They do look like regular waffles, don’t they? They eggs will brown on the edges when they’re in the waffle iron! :)

    I love the waffle maker for not-just-waffles.
    I made brownies in mine once. YUM.

    Could you freeze these and reheat them in the toaster like a regular waffle?

      These look great!! My son loves plain french toast, egg in savory dishes, but dislikes scrambled eggs – go figure! I’m also wondering if these can be freezed for later or does it need to be more “bread like” to be freezable? Since the weekday mornings can get busy, I’m trying to find more freezable options!!

    I was starting to feel guilty that I bought a waffle maker cause it was only me who craves for waffles in the house not the husband nor the kids. Now I am almost guiltless cause they sure love eggs. Thanks weelicious!

    Do you think these would turn out okay using just egg whites? Or does it need the fat from the whole egg. Thanks!

      Hmm I haven’t tried it that way, but I think it would work if you cooked it for a little less time! I say give it a try using just one egg white so you don’t waste too many if it doesn’t turn out!

    This makes me actually wish I had a waffle maker. My husband bought one a few years ago and I returned it since I hated the idea of a product for single use and because we never eat waffles. I think I might be regretting that decision.
