Savoury Cheddar & Egg Waffles

Recipe by Jaclyn Irwin






Serves 01

Switch up traditional sweet waffles with a savoury one, made with almond flour, egg and cheddar. Serve with 2 quail eggs or 1 regular fried egg to amp up the protein. This is great for gluten free, kosher, low sugar, IBS and paleo conditions or diets.


  1. 1

    Preheat the waffle iron.

  2. 2

    In a medium sized bowl, add the almond flour, egg, cheddar cheese, mayonnaise and salt and pepper and mix well to combine. The texture will be thick.

  3. 3

    Once the waffle iron is hot, add half the batter and close the lid. Cook for about 4 minutes, until the waffle is cooked through and releases. Remove and repeat with the remaining batter.

  4. 4

    While the waffle is cooking, heat a small skillet over medium heat and add any oil (if needed). Once hot, add the eggs and cook until the whites are set and the yolk is still runny.

  5. 5

    Add the waffles to a plate, top with the fried eggs, chives and salt and pepper. Enjoy!

  6. 6

    Substitutions: No quail eggs, use 1 large egg instead. No almond flour: use all purpose flour, or gluten free all purpose flour. No fresh chives: use green onion, or another fresh herb instead.
