Instructions

  1. Pre-heat your waffle maker.
  2. In a large, cold frying pan, arrange the bacon slices and then turn up the temperature to medium heat. Cook the bacon for about 8-12 minutes, turning occasionally until crisp, or to your preference.
  3. Set aside on a paper towel to drain while you cook the chaffles. Keep the bacon grease in the pan.
  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 approximately 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.

Bringing bacon to room temperature prior to frying, and adding the bacon to a cool pan and then turning up 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!

    I tried this with egg whites instead of eggs and it was amazing!

    Love this recipe. I've made Chaffles with almond flour and found it very messy.

    This recipe was much better and gave a lighter more tasty Chaffle.

    I didn't have any fresh chives, so I added onion granules and dried parsley instead.

    Love it. So quick and easy and tastes delicious. I added some onion powder for flavour. Will try with different toppings.

    Oh my goodness. Im a convert. What a delicious meal. Even my picky eaters liked the waffles. I had everything in the house to make this. My first Diet Doctor day eating for the new me.

    Awesome, Ceora! So glad it was a hit!

    I sprinkle half the grated cheese into the waffle maker, add the beaten egg, then top with the rest of the cheese, rather than beating them together, makes the chaffle crispier and seems to hide that eggy taste.
