The perfect fun new way to eat eggs, these Western Omelet Waffles aka ‘Chaffles’ are savory and so tasty! They’re easy to make, naturally gluten free, and a protein packed way to enjoy breakfast. You can make these with just eggs and cheese, then top the chaffles with the western omelet toppings, or add them right into the egg mixture. So here’s to weekend breakfasting at a whole new level!



1 cup thinly sliced green onions

1/2 cup finely diced red bell pepper

1 cup finely diced ham

1 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese

8 eggs

1/2 Teaspoon sea salt, or to taste

1/4 Teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

butter or avocado oil

Top with:

1 ripe avocado, thinly sliced

1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions

Optional serve with:

Rosemary Breakfast Potatoes


Preheat a waffle iron on the medium heat setting, I use the Cuisinart 4-slice Belgian waffle maker.

Prep the green onions, red bell pepper, ham, and cheese, and set them each aside in small bowls.

Whisk together the eggs, sea salt, and pepper in a medium sized bowl, and set aside.

Lightly grease the waffle maker with butter or oil, and sprinkle a small amount of the green onions, red bell pepper, and ham over the surface of the 4 sections. Then pour 1/4 of the egg mixture over the top of the onions, pepper, and ham, using a spatula to move the egg into the corners. Be careful not to overfill the waffle maker, it’s better to have a smaller waffle than overflow. Sprinkle 1/4 of the cheese over the top of the egg and close the waffle iron.

Cook the egg mixture until it’s thoroughly done and and golden brown, about 3 minutes. Repeat the process, greasing the waffle iron each time, until you have 4 full waffles. You can serve the omelet waffles as you go, or keep them warm in the oven as you cook the rest.

If you have leftovers, these reheat very well over the next 3-4 days.


The amounts you put in the waffle iron will depend on the size you own.

If your waffle iron is old or not in great condition showing a tendency to stick, consider making these egg waffles by mixing together the egg and cheese and cooking that in your well greased waffles iron. Then separately, sauté the ham, bell pepper, and green onions in a touch of butter on the stove top and serve them as a topping for the egg and cheese waffles.
