Chaffles: Versatile, Crunchy, Easy Bread Alternative
Chaffles are waffles made of cheese. The crunchy, cheesy, bready texture of the chaffles are the perfect texture.
Chaffles are so versatile, they can be eaten alone or with any number of pairings.
- Serves: 1
- Prep time: 1 min
- Cook time: about 5 mins
- 1/3 to 1/2 cup grated cheese
- 1 egg
- Heat waffle iron.
I used a double waffle maker here. A Belgian waffle maker or Dash waffle maker also work well. If your waffle maker has variable temperatures, these will cook best on a medium/low setting. A mini waffle iron, such as the Dash will yield two waffles. A larger waffle maker, such as a Belgian waffle iron will yield one.
- Sprinkle about half of your pre-measured grated cheese into your waffle iron.
Virtually any grated cheese -pre-grated or grated fresh from a block- can be used here. Just don't use anything that is very wet like fresh mozzarella.
- Once the cheese begins to melt and sizzle, pour the beaten egg over top and then sprinkle in remaining cheese.
- Close waffle iron and cook. The length of time these will take to cook depends upon your waffle iron. I just keep an eye on these and remove them from heat when they start to smell like a toasty cheesy bagel. For my waffle iron, it takes about 5 mins.

Subs & Adds
- Adding in 1 tbsp of grated hard cheese, such as parmesan, gives the chaffle a little extra crunch.
