These savory, keto friendly Ham and Gruyere Cauliflower Waffles are perfect for any meal of the day. But my favorite way to enjoy them is with a yolky poached egg.
You may have had keto waffles, but have you had cauliflower waffles?
Yep, that’s right: cauliflower can officially do anything. These gluten free waffles are completely flourless. If you’ve never ventured into the world of savory waffle recipes, let me tell you what you’re getting into: riced cauliflower, shredded gruyere cheese, ham, fresh chives, eggs, plus salt and pepper … blend it all up in a food processor and then grill on the waffle iron. The result is a savory waffle that’s fluffy on the inside and crispy on the outside. Stack them up and top them with an egg, cooked however you prefer, and you’ve got the perfect keto breakfast.
Looking for easy breakfast recipes? Looking for budget friendly recipes? This recipe is both!
You can make a bunch of these nut free keto waffles at once, store them in the fridge, and reheat them throughout the week — I recommend using a toaster oven or a regular toaster. If you’re looking for more 30 minute meals to add to your meal plans, you can make a whole batch of these in 20 minutes, the longest part is just waiting for them to cook on the waffle iron. All of the ingredients can be purchased at your local grocer. If they don’t have riced cauliflower, you can easily make your own.
How to make cauliflower rice:
- Place cauliflower florets in a food processor and pulse until they resemble the size and shape of rice
- Grate a head of cauliflower on a box grater
- Finely chop with a knife
- Check your local grocery store. Products like this are becoming more and more common and it is likely that you can find pre-packaged cauliflower rice in the fresh and frozen sections of your local grocery store.
