Sausage, ham and cheese omelettes made in a waffle maker!! These savory waffles are quick and easy; a fun meal, perfect for a crowd and meal prepping.

We’re big fans of breakfast over here. After the busy school mornings, the weekend usually calls for breakfast together. And breakfast for dinner is often in the weekly meal plan. Sometimes it’s fun to play with new flavors, and sometimes it’s nice to enjoy our favorites. I’ve seen egg waffles floating around the internet and thought I’d give them a try. Essentially, they are are omelettes cooked up in a waffle maker. Pick your favorite fillings; the possibilities are endless.

For these savory waffles, start by cooking up some breakfast sausage. I cooked up a whole pound, but only used 1 cup for the recipe. This way there’s an equal amount of all the filling ingredients. Save the extra sausage for another meal, or use all of it. It’s up to you.

While the sausage is cooking, whisk together the eggs with heavy cream (milk works well too). Also, dice up some sliced deli ham, and measure out 1 cup of shredded cheese. At this point you could gather up any other ingredients that you like. Some ideas include: onions, bell peppers, bacon, mushrooms, tomatoes and spinach, just to name a few.

Mix Together the Omelette Ingredients

Once you have all the omelette filling ingredients, add them to the eggs and whisk together. The best thing about these omelette waffles is how simple they are to make. It would be so easy to make up a bunch to serve at a brunch party. Add some toppings for guests to choose from; then you can spend time mingling instead of making omelettes.

Spray the waffle maker with non-stick spray, and add the sausage, ham, and cheese omelette mixture (filling it just the same as you would for a regular waffle). Close the lid on the waffle maker, and let the savory waffles cook. It took about 3 minutes in my maker. The eggs will be fluffy and cooked through when they are ready.

Then, move the finished waffles from the waffle maker to a baking sheet. Top with some more cheese and keep them warm in the oven (at about 200º). Continue making the rest of the waffles. Sometimes, I find it frustrating to make eggs for the whole family. We end up taking turns eating because I can only make so many eggs at one time. By keeping the omelette waffles warm in the oven, it eliminates this problem. Everyone can enjoy a warm meal together.

This is also a fantastic way to pre-make omelettes for busy mornings. Simply let the waffles cool when they are finished cooking, and store in the refrigerator. Add the cheese on top when you are ready to warm them up. If you’re looking for easy breakfasts for meal prepping, you might also like Bacon and Cheese Egg Cups.

  • 10 Eggs

  • 1 Cup Cooked Breakfast Sausage
  • 1 1/2 Cups Shredded Cheese, Divided
  • 1/4 Cup Heavy Cream

  1. Set oven to warm (about 200º). Brown the breakfast sausage in a frying pan.
  2. While sausage is browning, dice up the sliced ham. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and heavy cream. Add the diced ham and 1 cup of shredded cheese to the egg mixture.
  3. Pre-heat your waffle maker. When the sausage is browned, drain the fat, and add 1 cup of cooked sausage to the egg mixture. Whisk everything together.
  4. When the waffle maker is pre-heated, fill the waffle maker with the egg mixture. Close the lid and let the omelette waffles cook about 3 minutes, until the eggs are cooked and fluffy.
