Ingredients

Waffles
  • 4 4 eggeggs
  • 8 oz. 225 g (1 cup equals 4 oz) cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 tbsp 2 tbsp fresh chives, chopped
  • salt and pepper
Toppings
  • 4 4 eggeggs
  • 8 8 bacon, good quality slices
  • 8 8 cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 2 oz. 50 g baby spinach

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Pre-heat your waffle maker.
  2. In a large, unheated frying pan, arrange the bacon slices and then adjust the temperature to medium heat. Cook the bacon for about 8-12 minutes, turning occasionally, until crispy to taste.
  3. Set aside on a paper towel to drain while you cook the chaffles.
  4. Place all of your waffle ingredients into a mixing bowl and beat to combine.
  5. Lightly grease your waffle iron and then evenly spoon the mixture over the bottom plate, spreading it out slightly to get an even result.
  6. Close the waffle iron and cook for approx. 6 minutes, depending on your waffle maker.
  7. While the chaffles cook, crack your eggs into the bacon grease in the frying pan and cook gently until done.
  8. Serve each chaffle topped with a fried egg and bacon slices, with baby spinach and cherry tomatoes on the side.

Tips

These chaffles are best eaten straight away but can be frozen and reheated. When in need of a quick, nutritious bite, simply microwave a chaffle for 40 seconds on a paper towel and then briefly cool.

They can also be stored, wrapped well, in the fridge for up to four days for easy breakfasts.

Tip! Bringing bacon to room temperature prior to frying, and adding the bacon to a cool pan and then turning on the heat to medium, helps the bacon to cook evenly.

    I need to try this because it's good for you and the most important part for me is that it's easy, and if it's easy I will make it in a flash. I detest hard recipes and hard-to-find ingredients. So if it's easy and the ingredients are simple anyone can make this and stay healthy. Kudos to you, diet doctors....

    I didn't like this dish at all. The bacon and eggs were fine, but the chaffle was odd. I could only taste the egg and yes, I weighed the cheese. It seemed very eggy. My husband said the same thing I did, the flavor was just odd. It was like an attempt at an omelet done differently. Won't be making this again.

    No, chaffles do not require any almond or coconut flour.

    You can use egg whites instead of the whole egg if it's too eggy. It'll change the macros and you'll need to figure it out but you won't have an eggy taste. One thing I did with these was put 3/4 of the cheese in the mix and sprinkled a bit on the griddle before and after putting the mix on the griddle. It makes it crunchy!

    Neat idea!
