So, I got a waffle iron a week ago and since then I’ve become absolutely obsessed with waffling things. Waffled chocolate chip cookies, waffled banana bread, waffled cinnamon rolls, and now of course — the savoury and delicious wafflet!
A wafflet is simply an omelette made in a waffle maker. The waffle maker I used for this recipe was the Oster waffle maker and it made the eggs come out super fluffy, yet slightly crispy on the outside. Absolutely divine.
The best part is that you can customize this recipe anyway you like and it’s nearly impossible to mess up. You can make a Mexican inspired omelette, a Greek style omelette, an Italian omelette — Whatever flavours your tastebuds desire.
If you’re planning on using hard ingredients (such as potatoes for a Spanish omelette) or you prefer that your veggies are soft, it would probably be best that you cook them prior to waffling them. I personally don’t mind my veggies being crunchy (truth: I’m lazy) so I never do this.
I loaded my omelette with as many vegetables as possible: bell pepper, spinach, mushroom, tomato, and white onion. For an added touch, I always add in nutritional yeast to my eggs because it gives them a cheesy taste and gives me some good ol’ vitamin B12.
This recipe is so easy to make, is super healthy, and only takes about 10 minutes to put it all together. So, let’s get started!

Waffle Iron Omelette
Serves: 1 | Total Time: 10 minutes
Sea salt + black pepper to taste
Toppings of choice, diced
1. Begin by whisking the eggs, sea salt, and black pepper in a bowl. Add in your toppings and give it another stir.
2. Coat the top and bottom of the iron with cooking spray and begin preheating. (I set mine to the medium setting.)
3. Pour the egg mixture into the iron in a circular motion, starting from the outer edge. Cook until the cover of the iron has raised. (The timing will vary depending on your waffle maker, the temperature setting, and texture preferences, however, mine take about 4-5 minutes.)
4. Remove the omelette from the waffle maker using a plastic fork or wooden tongs. Garnish the eggs if you like. (Avocado is always a great choice!)
