Eggs are almost the perfect food. They have lots of protein, vitamin D, and allow us to feel full. There are so many ways to make eggs, it’s sometimes hard to keep track of which recipe is the best. They’re all so good!
Your new favorite way to make eggs is using the waffle iron. Seriously! You can make delicious savory waffles, like this Perfect Bacon and Goat Cheese Egg Waffle for Beginners. It is so easy, anyone can make this flavorful brunch recipe. Crisp bacon, tart goat cheese, and fresh green onions are suspended in these fluffy, pillowy egg waffles.
If you don’t have a lot of experience in cooking, no problem! This recipe was designed so that even the most novice cooks can whip up an interesting and delicious brunch for friends and family. The original recipe cooks bacon from raw to add to the waffles, but if you use bacon bits or microwave bacon, we won’t tell!
To make this easy recipe, combine eggs, cooked bacon bits, goat cheese, and chopped green onions with salt and pepper. Heat your waffle iron and add the egg mixture into the hot iron. Cook for 3-5 minutes and that’s it! This is a very upscale brunch dish without requiring a lot of effort.
Any combination of breakfast meat, cheese, and vegetables can be used in an egg waffle. You can swap out the bacon with equal amounts of cooked breakfast sausage or ham. If you do not like goat cheese, feel free to use cheddar, feta, or fontina. Add chopped red bell pepper, fresh asparagus, or spinach for even more veggie goodness.
Serve these waffles with a little bit of sour cream for dipping. The creamy tartness pairs beautifully with the fat in the bacon and the freshness of the green onion. Top the waffles and sour cream with even more bacon, green onions, and goat cheese so that the waffles look beautiful on the plate.
These egg waffles are the perfect breakfast recipe for beginner cooks. All you need are a few ingredients and a waffle iron for a truly unique and scrumptious meal. Not only are they delicious, but they are keto, gluten-free, and healthy!
In a large skillet, lay the bacon out so that the strips are spaced apart and not touching each other. Do this in a cold pan. Turn on the heat to medium and allow the bacon to cook until crispy, flipping as needed. Once the bacon is crisp on both sides, remove it to a paper towel-lined baking sheet and allow it to cool.
Chop the bacon into large bits once it is cooled enough to handle.
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F.
In a medium-sized bowl, crack the eggs and break up the yolks, whisking until homogenous. Add the bacon bits (reserving some for the top of the egg waffles), chopped green onions, 3 ounces of goat cheese, salt, and pepper. Whisk to combine, trying not to break up the goat cheese too much.
Heat your waffle iron to 350 degrees F. Once hot, spray with nonstick cooking spray on the top and bottom to keep the egg waffles from sticking. Add a ½-¾ cup of the egg mixture into the greased waffle iron and cook for 3-5 minutes until the egg is crisp without being too brown. It should also remove easily from the waffle iron. Carefully place on a wire rack in a low 200-degree oven to keep the egg waffles warm. Repeat this step until all of the egg waffle batter has been cooked.
Cut the waffles into 4 pieces each. Serve the waffles with optional sour cream for dipping. Top with more bacon bits, green onions, and goat cheese to garnish.
