Waffle omelette presented on a round white plate, and served with carrot sticks and sliced cucumber.

My daughter loves waffles and has been bugging me for ages to get a waffle maker.

I was reluctant as the thought of yet another gadget taking up space in the kitchen just wasn’t appealing to me.

But as always I gave in! However I promised myself I’d find lots of ways to use it to make the purchase worthwhile!

One of my favourite recipes I’ve made so far in it are these Waffle Omelettes.

Just take your usual omelette ingredients but rather than cooking in a pan, cook them in the waffle iron.

They make a really quick and easy lunch and the fun waffle shape makes them a bit more appealing for kids too!

Close up photo of the filling inside the waffle. We used cherry tomatoes,peppers,ham and grated cheese.

The first step is to add some eggs and any other omelette ingredients to a jug and mix well.

I used cherry tomatoes, peppers, ham and grated cheese but feel free to customise to your own tastes.

All of the ingredients in a clear glass Pyrex measuring jug.

How to Make Waffle Omelettes

Preheat the waffle maker and when it’s hot add some spray oil to the top and bottom.

Pour the omelette mixture in, dividing between the four compartments.

Cook for 4-5 minutes until the omelette is golden brown.

You know it’s cooked when it starts to come away from the edges, although you may need to give it a little nudge if it gets stuck in places.

Waffle now cooked and ready to be served.

Serve up straight away with some chopped veggies for a simple but really tasty lunch.

And something a little bit different for the kids that they hopefully will enjoy!


Which Waffle Iron Should I Use?

I used a waffle iron from Aldi but this waffle iron on Amazon looks exactly the same.

I’ve used a round rotating waffle iron but the recipe will also work in square waffle irons.
