Cheesy Chaffle Sandwiches with Avocado & Bacon


You don't have to be on a low-carb or Keto diet to jump on the "chaffle" trend--chaffles are flourless waffles made from eggs and cheese. They may be gimmicky, but they're also delicious. For our chaffle sandwiches, we've added some crumbled bacon to the batter and used the chaffles to make sandwiches, filled with avocado and tomato. Enjoy a sandwich as a low-carb breakfast that also happens to be gluten-free.

8 sandwiches


  • 10 large eggs

  • 1 ¼ cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

  • 2 slices center-cut bacon, cooked and crumbled

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 2 small avocados, sliced

  • 2 small tomatoes, sliced

  • 4 large leaves butterhead lettuce, torn into 3-inch pieces


  1. Whisk eggs in a large bowl until smooth. Stir in cheese, crumbled bacon and pepper.

  2. Preheat a 7-inch round waffle iron (not Belgian); coat with cooking spray. Pour about 2/3 cup of the egg mixture into the hot waffle iron. Cook until the eggs are set and light golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Repeat the procedure with cooking spray and the remaining egg mixture (making 4 chaffles total).

  3. Slice each chaffle into quarters. Top half of the quarters evenly with avocado slices, tomato slices and lettuce. Top with the remaining chaffle quarters (making 8 sandwiches). Serve immediately.


Equipment: 7-inch round waffle iron (not Belgian)

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
