These gluten-free Guacamole Waffle Bites make a great appetizer or side dish. With just a few simple ingredients, they’re packed with flavor and are a fun, easy recipe for anyone to make!
It’s time for another recipe roundup with some of my fav bloggers. If I’m being totally honest, I completely forgot about this post until about 2 days ago when Julia sent us a little reminder! The move threw me off my game a little bit. That, coupled with the fact that we have yet to go to the grocery store since we moved in, meant I had to get a little creative and use what I had on hand.
Turns out, situations like that sometimes lead to the best recipes. I’ve kinda been loving my waffle maker ever since I started making these Whole Wheat Yogurt Waffles regularly and I thought it might be kinda fun to make some bite-sized waffles and put a savory spin on them. I used sweet potatoes as the base…because i ALWAYS have those on hand…and mixed in some bacon and cheese for flavor, along with an egg to hold everything together.
I wasn’t really sure how they would turn out but I was pleasantly surprised at how good they tasted. To top them up, I whipped up a small batch of guacamole with a lonely avocado, a few cherry tomatoes, and some red onion. You could easily use store-bought guac to make these even easier!
Here’s the exact recipe:
This made 14 waffle bites for me I think. Feel free to experiment with other toppings for these as well. Maybe some hummus? Or more bacon and cheese 🙂
Serve them as an appetizer, side dish or snack at your next summer cookout. Speaking of cookouts….4th of July anyone?!
