What a flavour combo!

Waffle lovers you’re going to love these easy low-carb bacon and cheese waffles. This recipe is adapted form our Cheesy Low-Carb & Keto Waffles, an all-time keto favourite!

For a bit of fun I pressed the bacon into the grain-free waffle batter. It goes all crispy when you bite through the cheesy waffles.

These waffles are so versatile. You can eat them on their own, I like them simple with some slices of avocado or a fried egg, or you could use them as a side for soup or serve with a salad like our Healthy 5-Minute Tuna Salad or 5-Ingredient Keto Chicken Salad, or even add some quick hollandaise!

Here's our tip for meal prep: Double the batch, freeze and reheat in the oven when needed. You've got a quick and easy breakfast option anytime in under 5 minutes. They are great for lunchboxes too!
