Savory waffles made from cauliflower crumbles, cheddar and spices, topped with fried eggs.



Cauliflower Waffles:

  • 2 ¼ cups cauliflower crumbles (10-ounce bag frozen riced cauliflower or 12-ounce bag frozen cauliflower florets, riced in the food processor)
  • 4 large eggs
  • ½ cup all-purpose, whole wheat, oat or almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ cup sharp cheddar cheese

Fried Eggs + Garnish:

  • 4 large eggs
  • Pinch coarse salt, ground black pepper and crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons flat-leaf Italian parsley, green onion or chives, chopped


  1. Place cauliflower crumbles, eggs, flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder into a bowl and whisk until combined. Fold in cheddar cheese.
  2. Heat a Belgian waffle maker to medium heat. Coat with cooking spray. Scoop ½ cup batter and spread on the bottom of the waffle maker. Close lid and cook 4-6 minutes, until waffle is browned and cooked through. Remove and repeat with remaining batter, coating with cooking spray between each waffle.
  3. In the meantime, coat a medium frying pan with cooking spray and heat to medium. Crack 4 large eggs into the pan once it's hot and season with salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes. Allow to cook for a few seconds, then turn heat down to medium-low. Allow to cook until egg white is almost set, then put a lid on the pan and turn to low. Cook just until top of the white is set, but yolk is completely uncooked.
  4. Top waffles with fried eggs and parsley, green onion or chives.


Cooking Tip: Be sure your waffle iron is in good condition. If any of the non-stick coating is worn off, the waffles will likely stick.

Flavor Tip: Add a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes if you want them to be spicy.
