Cheese and Herb Waffles

Cheese Waffles Giulia DoyleI didn’t really know anything about savoury waffles. My only experience with waffles growing up where the wonderfully large ones I’d get at French beach side resorts – topped with a heaping pile of whipped cream or sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. Once I moved to North America I ate them like I eat pancakes, with butter and maple syrup – maybe I’d add a pile of strawberries from time to time. But a couple of months ago I had a craving for savoury waffles – a little salty, a little bit of cheese and naturally an egg on top. It turned out just as I imagined – fluffy, crispy, cheesy with a hint of pepper and a nice runny yolk. At the time I shared it on Instagram and have since been thinking about sharing them here – it only took eight months, but here we are. Amazing cheese and herb waffles for your weekend brunch, lunch or even dinner. Enjoy!

Cheese and Herb Waffles

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Yield: This made 3 large waffles


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup of grated cheese (I used three kinds)
  • 1/2 cup of chopped herbs such as parsley and/or basil


  1. Preheat the waffle iron according to the manufacturer's directions. In a large bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and pepper. Set aside. In another bowl, whisk milk and eggs; pour over flour mixture and stir gently to combine. Gently whisk in butter and stir in herbs and grated cheese. Don't over mix Following manufacturer's directions, cook the waffles until deep brown and crisp.
  2. For standard waffle irons, pour 1/2 - 1 cup of batter into the centre of the iron, allowing the batter to spread evenly across the iron. Waffle will cook in about 5 minutes or until steam stops escaping. Make sure waffles are crispy.


Cooking time and yield really depend of the type of waffle iron you use. Keep them warm in low heat oven by placing them single layer on a cookie sheet.
