Ingredient Notes

  • Eggs: Whisking the eggs with a little heavy cream makes them extra fluffy when cooked. I also like to add a little cheddar or parmesan cheese to the egg mixture as it makes a crust when these waffle omelets are cooked. (More Keto Breakfast Recipes)

  • Meat: I used ground breakfast sausage, bacon, and ham but you can use any meat that you prefer.

  • Vegetables: For the veggies in this recipe I used garlic, onion, mushrooms and bell peppers, but you can use any low carb vegetables you prefer. Spinach and broccoli are also great options.

  • Cheese Sauce: For this recipe I used the homemade keto cheese sauce recipe from my Roasted Cauliflower Steaks with Bacon and Cheese Sauce recipe, but you could also just sprinkle some cheese over top. It is also delicious with a jarred nacho cheese sauce.

How to Make Waffle Omelets with Cheese Sauce

Step by Step Instructions

STEP 1: Preheat the waffle maker. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and the heavy cream. 

STEP 2: Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the mushrooms, bell pepper, garlic, white parts of the green onions, salt, and pepper and sauté until the vegetable are tender. 

STEP 3: In a separate mixing bowl, combine the cooked sausage, bacon, ham, veggies, and the green portions of the green onions.

STEP 5: Lightly grease the waffle maker and ladle some of the waffle omelet mixture into the waffle iron. (The amount will vary depending on the size of your waffle maker. Cook until the eggs are fully set, about 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat this process with the remaining omelet mixture.

Recipe Tips and Variations

  • Storage: Store leftover waffle omelets in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

  • Reheating: I recommend reheating these keto waffle omelets in the microwave or in a pan on the stovetop. To bring the cheese sauce back to life, you may need to add a little cream.

  • Taco: Make a taco variation by cooking ground beef in Taco Seasoning and then mixing some of the cooked beef in with the egg mixture. Top it with the cheese sauce and all of your favorite taco toppings – lettuce, tomatoes, olives, avocado, Pickled Jalapeños or Pickled Red Onions.

  • Make a chili cheese variation: Swap out the meat and vegetables in the recipe for some of my Slow Cooker Kickin’ Chili Recipe and top with the keto cheese sauce, green onions and sour cream.

  • Make it dairy free: To make these dairy free keto omelets, simply swap out the heavy cream in the egg mixture for full fat coconut milk or almond milk and omit the cheese sauce. These swaps will also make it paleo and whole30 compliant, so long as you are using compliant ingredients. (More Dairy Free Keto Recipes)
