Broccoli & Cheese Waffles

Creamy chunks of Brie and tender-crisp bites of broccoli stud these crisp waffles that make a great base for egg sandwiches. Or, eat them on their own with a smear of homemade Dijonnaise made by mixing 1/4 cup mayonnaise with 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard.

Nutrition Profile:


  • 2 cups finely chopped broccoli florets

  • 1 ½ cups whole-wheat flour

  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 ½ cups low-fat milk

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil

  • 1 cup diced Brie cheese


  1. Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add broccoli and cook until bright green, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Transfer the broccoli to a kitchen towel and set aside until cool enough to handle.

  2. Preheat a waffle iron to medium-high.

  3. Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Whisk egg, milk and oil in a medium bowl. Whisk the wet mixture into the dry mixture just until combined. Squeeze as much water from the broccoli as possible. Fold the broccoli and cheese into the batter. Let stand for 10 minutes.

  4. Coat waffle iron with cooking spray. Pour in 1/2 cup batter and cook until browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Repeat with the remaining batter.

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.)
