Looking for a savory waffle recipe? Skip the flour and make omelets in your waffle maker! This is a fun and easy breakfast recipe packed with veggies!

I love waffles. I also love omelets.  Both dishes can be a little bit of work to cook, though, and I usually save them for lazy weekend mornings.  After making hash browns in my waffle maker, I decided I needed to give this little appliance more use.  Cooking eggs to make an omelet is a great way to get more use of a waffle maker.

The first thing you need to make omelet waffles is an awesome waffle maker. I used to own a very large Belgian waffle maker and I hated it.  It’d use up an entire recipe of batter and make one waffle.   A few years ago I picked up this Oster Ceramic Waffle Maker and I love it! It makes perfect little waffles and it’s totally non-stick.

Double Waffle Maker

As much as I love my little waffle maker, I really want this Double Belgian Waffle Maker! It makes TWO WAFFLES at once! No more standing at the waffle maker all morning long.

My husband and I eat eggs with vegetables pretty much every morning.  We are generally lazy and just pre-chop onions and peppers on Sunday for the week.  But sometimes I’ll throw in zucchini or mushrooms.

This recipe is great for using up leftover veggies like onions and mushrooms. Feel free to use any veggies you want just make sure to chop them in to small bites.  You could also saute them a little to start them cooking and then mix them in with the eggs.

Waffle Maker Recipe Ideas

When cooking the omelet in the waffle maker, ignore the timer on the maker.  You want to cook until the eggs are set. I like my eggs on the firm side but my husband likes them a little softer so cook them to how you prefer them.

Egg Waffles

Once the omelet is cooked, remove from the waffle iron (check out these COOL TONGS!) and serve hot with some more veggies.  Cheese may also be a great topping. Just add a little shredded cheese to the hot omelet and allow it to melt before eating.

    My question is I have a waffle maker that rotates to cook. How would this work in one of those makers? Please advise

      Can you cook in it without flipping it? Also, those tend to have larger divets to make the waffle, so you may need a little more egg filling.

    I often skip breakfast because it’s such a hassle cooking for one. But now I have a quick and easy way to start the day, and it varies constantly. I have type 2 diabetes and now I have a tried and true kick start. Btw it makes an awesome lazy day dinner.

    Do you close the waffle maker. How do you know when the omelet is cooked to your liking?

    • Camille
      September 10, 2019

      Yes you close it. It takes a minute or two. There is a little trial and error at first to determine exactly how much egg to put in the waffle maker and then how long to cook it.

    This is such a fun idea and another way for me to use our waffle maker. Pinned and will give this a try!

    Are the ingredients listed the amount you used to fill the iron as pictured? (Is one omelet considered the 4 sections of the waffle iron?)

      It’s really going to depend on your waffle maker. I have a small one and can make a few. Don’t dump all of it out at once! Test and see what works for yours.

    My grandson loves omelets. This is a nice twist on the usual omelet, and would be great for week-end breakfast. Please share on Sunday’s Best. I’m going to add this to my Kid’s Breakfast Board too.

    I loved this idea and had the same experience as Mary. It made an absolute and complete mess that took almost 40 minutes to clean up. I realized it was partially because I didn’t spray the waffle iron first -my bad. But it was still pretty awful even when I did it right. So my question is – do you close the waffle maker or leave it open like in one of your pictures? I thought, maybe that’s what I’m doing wrong…

    • Camille

      You have to close it! And use less eggs in each omelet. The eggs will fluff up as the cook. Making sure it’s well greased is essential but that’s true for even making regular waffles. I find that when I have overflow, I need to cut down on how much I’m putting in.

    I saw this recipe and couldn’t wait to try. My husband loves omelets and I have trouble turning them I thought this was the perfect solution. I followed the instructions to the letter. I pulled out my new waffle maker and fired it up. It went downhill from there. The eggs poured out of the sides as soon as I closed the lid. My iron looks the same size as pictured. The eggs stuck to the iron in an awful mess. It’s so bad I may have to toss the iron. I’m going to stick to scrambling for now on. So sorry.

      Hi Mary, Ugh! It can be frustrating when that happens. Cooking on the waffle iron is always a little tricky at first. It’s hard for me to give exact measurements as to how much to pour in the waffle maker because they are all so different. Generally I under fill to start and go from there!
