I first shared these Egg Waffles over five years ago and they’re still just as fun and clever as they were back then. It’s like all the goodness of an omelet, in a form of an egg waffle that you could eat with your hands if you really wanted to….and you don’t have to fight the never-ending battle with eggs sticking to a pan.
I mean, does it get much better? When I make mine I usually include:
- Chicken sausage – but any kind of breakfast sausage will do.
- Chopped veggies – peppers and onions are my go to.
- Cheese – totally optional
I may never cook eggs in a pan again. I have a new best friend. My (egg) waffle maker. (Affiliate link to the one I have!)
These egg waffles were SO easy. They’re ready in under a minute. Just quickly spray your waffle maker with oil or rub a stick of butter across the top and bottom and BOOM! there’s no messy pan to clean up!

Ready in under a minute and easy to customize, you’ll never want to cook eggs in a pan again.
- Sausage (pre-cooked)
- Peppers, onions or other veggies
- Cheese, if desired
- Grease waffle iron and heat to medium setting.
- Crack 2 eggs in a bowl and whisk to combine.
- Pour eggs into waffle iron.
- Top with sausage, veggies and cheese.
- Shut waffle iron and hold firmly closed for about 15 seconds.
- Let go and let cook for another 30-45 seconds.
- Open and remove with a fork.
- Repeat as many times as desired.
I didn’t include quantities because you can make as many as you’d like. Just use two eggs per “waffle”, add whatever mix-ins you want and cook for a minute or so. Make sure your waffle iron is clean so there aren’t crumbs for the eggs to stick to and make sure to oil it beforehand like you would if you were making regular waffles.
As long as I lightly oiled the waffle maker beforehand, these didn’t stick at all, making cleanup a breeze! If you don’t mind reheated eggs – ie if you’re someone who could make an egg casserole and eat it all week long, you could change things up and make a big batch of these and reheat all week long for breakfast!
Have you tried these? Are you going to? What mix-ins will you add to yours?

I saw something floating around Facebook a while ago about all these different things you could make with your waffle maker- brownies, cinnamon rolls, eggs, etc. I remember thinking it was too good to be true. Glad it really works because I was hesitant about the sticking. I would love to try this. I only have a large Belgium waffle maker but I suppose I’d just need to use more eggs. Excited!
yep i would think it would work with maybe 4 eggs? i gotta try dessert next!
Arman @ thebigmansworld says
Love this Linds! I’ve been obsessed with doing it with mashed potatoes…oops.
ooh that might be a way i could handle eating them!
Leisa Hammett says
Well, actually that’s one of the reasons I’m here. I googled this and found you. But I got the idea via a local restaurant here in Nashville, called Love Coffee. They have these, but there’s little bits of soft white potato in them. So good. Thank you. I was really leery about the stick. My iron is a good one—after buying and trashing at least two. It’s nonstick. But I’ll take your advice and spray….Off to the kitchen!
you KNOW KNOW KNOW WE LOVE these here too.
(it was the first way the child <3'ed her eggs)
Angela @ happy fit mama says
I was hoping you’d post this today! Going to try asap!
Amazing! These are awesome for a great idea for busy mornings or kids. But the best part is having another use for my waffle iron!
agreed. i’m tackling dessert waffles next 🙂
I started making these a while ago because you are right, they are fast and easy (and stressless!). I recommend them and give your waffle maker a second life.
can’t believe i’ve waited this long to try them!
Katie @ Fit Life by Katie says
These look so good! I have a waffle stick maker these would totally be fun in 🙂
ooh that’d be awesome!
Megan @ Skinny Fitalicious says
This is a genius idea! Now if only I had a waffle maker. 🙂
gotta get on that!
Linz @ Itz Linz says
yes! you need one!
Brittany @ Delights and Delectables says
I LOVE this idea! Maybe this is how I can get Baby D to eat eggs??
worth a shot!
Jennifer FIsher says
what a great idea!
What a fantastic idea! and then you get little pockets for condiments too 😀
Dietitian Jess says
This is genius!! I actually haven’t seen this before, but I’ve seen a lot of other things you can make with a waffle iron besides waffles… brilliant! Can’t wait to try it out and I think my husband would really like it too!
yay! hope it’s a hit!
I think I’ll try this this weekend – looks fun!
Great idea! I’ll have to try this. I’m all for easy, but different recipes for breakfast.
let me know what you think!
Taca @ A Side Of Dessert says
This is life changing! I absolutely hate cleaning the pan after eggs and I have a waffle maker that does not get used nearly enough! I’ll definitely have to try this out! I would make an egg waffle with mushrooms and peppers 🙂
sounds delish! enjoy!
Linda @ Fit Fed and Happy says
What’s great is that you can also use leftover meats and mix it with te egg and put it on the fell too to get rid of the leftovers!
Love this idea, how creative and fun! Next month is nutrition month, if you’re doing a post for it I would love to share it on my blog since you are such an expert.
don’t have one planned yet but maybe!
Jody - Fit at 57 says
OMG – LOVE and with my MucleEggs in hand – YES, I will try!!!!!
tiff @ love, sweat, & beers says
Oooo, I saw these somewhere! They sound great. Now if only I had a waffle iron… 🙂
garage sale season is coming 🙂 bet you could find one for cheap!
She Rocks Fitness says
Love this idea…And cannot wait to try it once I have some more veggies in my fridge…Heading to Costco tomorrow! 😉

Hannah @ CleanEatingVeggieGirl says
These are genius, Lindsay! I’ll have to try out a veg-friendly version. Pinning for later 🙂
thanks Hannah! Enjoy!
Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine says
So I totally don’t eat any of that, haha, but so fun! Waffles irons are THE best!
Erin @ Her Heartland Soul says
I’m legit doing this tomorrow morning! Thanks for sharing!
hope you enjoy them!
Jojo @ Run Fast Eat Lots says
I’ve been meaning to try to cook more non-waffle things in my waffle maker. Must try these!
i’m thinking brownie waffles are next on my list 🙂
genevieve @ gratitude & greens says
Wow, these are genius! I would have never thought of it. I actually haven’t even seen them floating around on Pinterest, so thanks for sharing- yet another reason I need to get myself a waffle maker!
yes! get one asap! then you can make waffles that are as delicious as those pancakes you just posted!
Danica @ It's Progression says
This is so interesting! I’ve never heard of egg waffles before but it’s such a good idea!
you should definitely give them a try!
Cassie @ Almost Getting it Together says
I just got a waffle maker of my own! I had one at home but not in SF… I’ve been thinking of other things to do and love this hassle-free way to cook eggs!
Kelly @ Laughter, Strength, and Food says
Life-changing is definitely the only word for these! 🙂
I can’t wait to see what the texture of these is like! I can’t decide if I think they will be soft like an actual waffle or slightly crispy… Looking forward to finding out!
Jessica @ Nutritioulicious says
I must be behind the times b/c I have never seen egg waffles before. Brilliant! I hate cleaning the pan from scrambled eggs and omelettes, which is why I usually stick to frittatas. I think I need to buy a waffle iron just to make these!
Erin @ Erin's Inside Job says
I love finding quick things I can make in a waffle maker! My bright idea last year was to take cookie dough and make cookie waffles. I was super lazy and used premade dough, but they were so delicious and quick!
I definitely want to try this out so thanks for sharing!
Michele @ paleorunningmomma says
Yum! Really love this idea. Anything with eggs and sausage is delicious by me 🙂
This is genius and the final push I needed to finally invest in a waffle iron
Emily @ Zen & Spice says
So smart!! This is awesome. My mind is already spinning with possibilities!
wow this is such a creative idea! i bet you could make a bunch in advance also and then reheat throughout the week, kind of like egg cups!
yep! we made for lunch and reheated for dinner!
Elizabeth @ Enjoy Every Bite says
You’ve convinced me to finally try these!! Can’t wait for breakfast tomorrow. My son will LOVE them!
hope they were a hit!
[email protected] says
OMG- you’re a genius!
Emily @SinfulNutrition says
And now I can add one more kitchen appliance to the list. This sounds awesome!! 😀
definitely a must-need!
Ashley @ A Lady Goes West says
Genius idea!! I’m on it!
Oh I like this!
Lisa @ RunWiki says
Such a good idea.
Wow- this makes me feel dumb for not attempting sooner! So simple, yet genius 😀
right?! that’s how i felt!
Courtney @ Eat Pray Run DC says
love this! i didn’t eat eggs until 3 months ago and have discovered that i love them BUT they have to be cooked really well (i.e. frittatas, egg muffins, etc.). so i’m always on the lookout for egg recipes that i’ll like. totally going to make these!!
Angela Gilmore says
These look delish! My brother texted me earlier the week with a link to a video about using your waffle iron for everything from cinnamon buns to biscuits. I am seriously not using my waffle iron enough! This I have to try though, I’m always looking for quicker ways to make eggs, and this makes them perfect sandwich size.
yep! perfection! i gotta try cinnamon buns!
I can’t believe I haven’t come across these before – It could definitely tempt me to get my waffle iron out again!
I have been so bored of breakfast lately. This is a brilliant idea and now I can enjoy my eggs again.
Kelly @ Eat the Gains says
I love this idea! I literally hate making eggs in a pan cause they usually always stick so I”m gonna have to try this!
I found this recipe today and made it before work…it’s brilliant! Thank you for posting!!
P.S. Your blog is fantastic!
thank you so much!
I am overrun with extra eggs from my backyard hens…can I make a lot of these and freeze the extra? Will they freeze well?
i suspect they will, but i haven’t tried it myself!
Can you freeze these for later?
i haven’t tried, sorry!
What a great idea! I mixed some shredded squash in the eggs and topped them with scallions and mozzarella cheese… made them in the Mickey Mouse waffle maker for extra fun. 🙂 So delicious and fun! Thanks Lindsay!
