Waffles are great, but you can’t eat them every day. Or can you?

By adding some savory components to your waffle batter, there’s no reason you can’t turn anything into a waffle treat. From high-protein cottage cheese waffles to vegan pizza waffles, there’s a little something of everything. 

You can even whip up waffles with Thanksgiving Day leftovers!

Promote your waffle maker to permanent countertop status, and check out these amazing savory waffle recipes. 

1. Cheesy Hash Brown Waffles 

This recipe answers the weekend breakfast conundrum: eggs or waffles? 

This extremely cheesy waffle recipe is the perfect toast replacement. It incorporates cheddar cheese, potatoes, and a touch of dried marjoram. All that’s missing is a sunny side egg on top!

When you break into the egg, it oozes into every nook and cranny of this delicious cheesy waffle. 

2. Ham and Gruyere Cauliflower Waffles 

Waffles are great, but they’re often high in carbs. If you want to keep carbs low, check out these ham and gruyere cauliflower waffles. 

Just like a gluten-free cauliflower pizza crust, they replace the carb-heavy flour with tender cauliflower. 

Combine them with rich gruyere and smoky bacon, and say hello to your next favorite breakfast (or dinner) option. 

3. Vegan Pizza Waffles

Who says you can’t have pizza for breakfast? These vegan pizza waffles taste like a loaded pizza in waffle form. What’s not to love?

They include the best pizza toppings, including peppers, mushrooms, Italian spices, and gooey vegan mozzarella. 

Take these waffles over the top and serve them with warm marinara for dunking.

4. High-Protein Cottage Cheese Waffles 

Cottage cheese is having a real moment right now. Everything is better with protein-dense cottage cheese. And that includes waffles!

These cottage cheese waffles are a breakfast power food. They’re low in carbs, high in protein, and so fluffy and delicious. 

Top them with eggs and breakfast meat, and it’s a great way to jumpstart your morning. 

5. Savory Mashed Potato Waffles 

Whenever mashed potatoes are on the menu, there are always leftovers. Instead of using leftovers for mashed potato cakes, let’s make waffles!

These savory mashed potato waffles are so crispy on the outside but maintain a creamy inside. And the best part? The recipe swaps flour for potatoes, which makes them gluten-free. 

This is the perfect toast replacement for sunny-side-up eggs and your favorite breakfast meats. 

6. Savory Cheddar Bacon and Herb Waffles

You can’t go wrong with cheddar and bacon. These herbed cheddar and bacon waffles are sure to be a big hit. They feature smoky bacon with gooey cheddar cheese and fresh herbs. They come together in a snap, too. 

Serve these waffles with eggs, and they’ll soon become your family’s next favorite meal.

7. Corned Beef Hash Waffles with Savoy Cabbage + Eggs

This recipe is the savory waffle recipe to end all savory waffle recipes. It’s rich and salty from the corned beef and earns an earthy kick from cabbage and eggs.

But we’re not done yet. Top it off with a drizzle of honey mustard syrup, binding all those bright flavors together. 

This recipe is a must-try if you love corned beef as much as I do!

8. Savory Green Waffles With Spinach 

They’re lean and green, and they’ll make your stomach sing! Green waffles seem strange and alien-like, but they’re a fun way to fit in your greens. They earn their summery green hue from healthy spinach, with a flavor kick from spices. 

And don’t worry, there’s plenty of cheese in there. Shredded cheddar cheese adds a buttery bite to these waffles. 

9. Buffalo Falafel Waffle

Need some spice in your life? These waffles are part buffalo wing, part falafel. And they’re 100 percent addictive. 

They feature healthy ingredients like flax seeds and chickpeas with various savory fresh herbs. With a dash of buffalo sauce, they taste like the best part of fried chicken wings: the crunchy breading. 

10. Savory Vegan Pumpkin Waffles

Looking for a great fall recipe? Let me introduce you to these vegan pumpkin waffles. 

Pumpkin is great for so much more than pie. It gives these savory waffles a hearty, spicy finish ripe for tasty toppings. The possibilities are endless with toppings like ricotta, fresh veggies, and avocado

While they’re a great fall food, you’ll want to serve these tasty savory waffles year-round. 

11. Savory Parmesan Waffles with Roasted Vegetables

Breakfast for dinner never looked so good. These savory Parmesan waffles with roasted veggies are the ultimate meatless Monday treat. 

They’re so crispy, and crunchy, with a nutty kick from Parmesan cheese. Plus, they’re so tender inside. 

Serve these waffles with bright roasted veggies, and watch your family go crazy over this tasty meal. 

12. Savory Zucchini Waffles 

Is your garden overflowing with zucchini this season? If you’ve had your fill of zoodles, check out these savory zucchini waffles. 

Shredded zucchini amps up the nutritional content of these waffles while adding a warm, savory bite. They’re a little green, but that’s ok!

Combine them with onion, cheddar cheese, panko breadcrumbs, and serve with a sunny-side-up egg. 

13. Freezer Sweet Potato Waffles

Frozen waffles are the pinnacle of convenient breakfast foods, but they don’t taste all that great. Swapping out your boring Eggos for these frozen sweet potato waffles is a game-changer. 

They have crispy outsides with mashed potato-like insides primed and ready for your favorite waffle toppings

Just pop them from the freezer into the toaster, and you’re all set! Easy-peasy. 

14. Serrano-Cheddar Waffles

These serrano cheddar waffles are perfect for those who love spice. Serrano peppers are twice as spicy as a jalapeño but pack a lot of flavor. 

The added cheddar cheese helps tame the heat, but these waffles will still make you sweat (in all the best ways). 

Pair them with creamy toppings like cottage cheese or homemade crema. 

15. Potato Hummus Waffles

These potato hummus waffles deliver everything you love about waffles without the gluten. They’re also vegan and overflowing with bright flavors. 

The potatoes create the perfect crispy crust, while hummus delivers smooth and creamy insides. 

Honesty, they’re so tasty, they don’t need toppings or syrup!

16. Stuffing Waffles

What can you do with all that leftover stuffing from Thanksgiving? Make waffles! These stuffing waffles are comfort food at its finest. They’re bright and savory with a crispy shell. 

Top them with a generous pour of gravy and a dash of cranberry sauce. It takes them over the top. 

17. Savory Corn Waffles with Tomato Herb Salad

These savory corn waffles with tomato herb salad are summer on a plate. 

Cornmeal adds such a delicate sweetness to these waffles accented by tangy buttermilk. But it doesn’t stop there. For a kick of spice, they also include diced jalapeños!

But the real star here is the tomato herb salad. All those savory, crispy veggies are the perfect backdrop to these satisfying waffles.
